Wow, what a great General Conference we had this past week! I always love learning from the inspired messages of our prophet, apostles, and other church leaders.
This week I took the challenge to do 2 things that 2 general authorities of the Church invited us to do:
1. Ask myself the following questions: What lack I yet? and, What is keeping me from progressing?
2. Ponderize (I’ll explain in a second.)
These two exercises really helped me to consecrate myself even more to the Lord’s work. I also know that these two things can be of great benefit to each of you! The first is fairly self-explanatory, just ask yourself and contemplate/ponder the questions then look to the Spirit for answers. I would really like to focus on the second one for a moment. Brother Devin G. Durrant invited us to Ponderize (80% pondering 20% memorization) a verse of scripture each week helping us to give our thoughts a place to go and be closer to the Savior rather than caught up in temptation and more worldly cares. I found that this has really helped me to better keep my baptismal covenant (promise) to ALWAYS remember my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I would invite all of you to do the same and Ponderize a verse of scripture this week and see if you too can feel the difference.
I love you all! Have a great week!
