#1- The Provo Temple

With 2016 now upon us we decided to meet at our couch in the front room for some goal making. We wanted to make this year our best yet & we knew 2015 was going to be a tough act to follow.

Thomas inspiringly shared a PMG Chapter 8 favorite from M. Russell Ballard who said, “I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don’t set goals in our life and learn how to master the techniques of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life.”

If we wanted 2016 to be memorable and be better, we needed to take this advice and decide which focuses and which actions we wanted to have. Big things don’t just happen–they require work, sacrifice and planning.

  We started this week real close to our little house & went to the Provo Temple. We had a wonderful time and were reminded that being in the house of the Lord is one of the most important ways we can come closer to the Savior. We can come to know him better this year as we spend time doing the things he would do.

I printed it off and put it beside my computer and I think it motivated me for a time. Thank you for reminding me that I can do more to reach my potential!!! Sure love you!!!!
