Here's a link for you....Tip #1.
This is just what I needed. As you may have noticed, my blog posts have had a bit of a negative edge to them lately. This is what happens when I let "tip #1" slide in my life. Last night, after perusing this, I recommitted myself to studying and praying harder. Today, I read this:
"Yea, in the strength of the Lord did we go forth to battle against the Lamanites; for I and my people did cry mightily to the Lord that he would deliver us out of the hands of our enemies, for we were awakened to a remembrance of the deliverance of our fathers" (Mosiah 9:17).
Sometimes people will say, "How do you do it all?" I can assure you I don't "do it all," but I will admit I do quite a bit, but I will also admit that the only times I am able to do more than average is when I'm relying on the strength of the Lord. He makes me more than I am. The only reason I can raise seven children is when he's helping me.
There, now you know all of my deep secrets. I truly believe that anybody, if they're willing to follow "tip #1" can start off on being more than they once were and making more out of their lives. I would also like to state that these behaviors are what I know assures me happiness even in the hardest of times. It helps to get my perspective back on track.
I'm grateful for these little messages that come my way. I'm grateful for a text message about a person who lives above the rock who shares great things for people like me to read to buoy us up and get us back on the right path.
I can now say that I have a little more of a clue of who Connie Sokol is, and I can also say that I'm PSYCHED to hear what she'll have to share here in Portland in September!
