New Beginnings...

Well, I know I've promised many pictures of the house and such, but progress has been going slow lately and we still have lots to do before pictures will show what I want them to. ;)

Anyhow, I've been thinking a lot lately about the way I'm spending my time. Yesterday I went home teaching with Trav because his companion wasn't able to make it to their assignments. Well, it was good for me. During one of our visits a man reminded us that reading the Book of Mormon is a commandment and like any other commandment we receive blessings. So, simply by opening it and reading even a few verses we receive great blessings! :)

Well, to make a long story short. I am taking my own challenge to read scriptures and/or conference talks every day. If you haven't read the talks from last conference you can read two-three a day and make it before the next conference. That is my goal. Then the next 6 months I want to read and ponder them one at a time. I might create another blog for this very thing... to help me keep it going. Anyhow, if anyone else needs that extra boost, you can join me. I'll let you know the blog later.

We are very blessed we are for the most simple actions we do and I am so grateful for that. I'm grateful for the atonement and the opportunity we have to change and become better. I love the gospel!
