Keep Trying

Well, I listened to one talk again this week. No one else was home. It was a talk I had heard before and had to read or listen to for a class, but it was the talk that I really needed to hear right now. Isn't it amazing how the Lord works?
I prayed a lot. I prayed most nights and even fell asleep while praying once or twice. I have, also, prayed a lot in my head during the day (it has been a rough week). Somehow the morning prayers are still hard for me. It was never a habit for me growing up. I did get in the habit when the kids were little, and I would like to do it again. I will have to remember how I did it back then and see if I can make it work again.
This week, I will work on the same goals plus I am going to make it to the temple on Saturday. I really need the spiritual lifting that going to the temple will give me.

Again - bad week

I didn't do anything with my goals this week either. Not following my health goals set me into a depressed state. But I feel better and ready to start new again.


  • Prepare for my first gospel doctrine lesson
  • Go to the temple

Need. To. Listen.

I prayed most nights. I, also, prayed off and on during the daylight hours. However, for some reason I just can't get myself to remember to listen to conference talks in the morning. I need to get this back into my routine. The kids are only in school for 2 1/2 more weeks. I want them to have something gospely in their mornings while I have a chance.
My goals almost the same this week. I will pray morning and night and listen to a conference talk each work day.

Partially

Well I listened to two conference talks and I'm really glad I did. I ended up using both for my lesson today. I didn't make it to the temple this week though. I also, only made my to do lists 3 times. It was an off week. I had finals in two of my classes plus I started two more classes. I'm sure I will get into a groove. I also was released as Relief Society teacher and put in as a gospel doctrine teacher. I'm crazy nervous.
For this week:


  • To Do lists
  • Temple 
  • Conference talk

Still Working on It

I am happy to say, I think my prayers are getting better. I am still not remembering to pray every night, but my random prayers are happening more often. I am glad I have been doing this challenge because it has helped me greatly with my desire to grow closer to my Heavenly Father. I am going to continue to work on this goal. It is not worth giving up.
I only listened to one talk this week. It was not in the morning, and I wouldn't have even listened to that if I didn't have to for homework. I have found my iPad, so listening to conference should be an easier goal.

Somewhat

Well I didn't get to the conference talks this week. I actually thought of it several times but wasn't in a place where I could read or listen to them at the time.

I read scriptures and prayed every day except one I think.

I only did my to do lists 4 times. I kept forgetting. I never seem to get more than half of what I write down done either but I did have some very productive times even if they weren't on my list.

I think I have a pretty good habit of prayer and scripture study, so I'm going to take that off my list for now and see how it goes.

So this week:


  • 2 conference talks
  • To do lists
  • Temple


Getting Better

My prayers are getting better. I didn't count them, but I know that I prayed most nights before I went to sleep. I, also, prayed off and on when I needed help with something or was thankful for something and didn't want to forget to be thankful. I would have to say that even thought I know that I did not pray daily, I am happy that I prayed more often. This week, I will pray every night before I go to sleep.
I forgot about the conference talks. I will get back to listening to them this week. I was only able to watch two sessions this last conference, and I want to find out what I missed and learn from the other sessions.
