Another month has passed and another goal has gone.
I decided that this year, my word would be motivation, so I’m trying to keep that in mind each month.
February’s goal was to Magnify My Religion!
Here is how I did with my sub goals:
I did pretty dang good with both! I started in the Old Testament and started a scripture journal. Justin and I are doing pretty good with family scripture reading in 2 Nephi. There are a few nights we miss, but those are nights that Rhys is sick.
– Daily personal morning and evening prayer, as well as daily family prayer
I will admit, this is probably my weakest area. I always say evening prayers and we mostly say family prayer, but I suck at morning prayer. Yes, I always have a prayer in my heart, but to actually kneel down in the morning and speak to Heavenly Father is hard to remember…and kneeling, period, is hard to remember with prayers. I really need to get better at this.
I read a few General Conference talks, not necessarily once a week, but I did read a few.
Justin and I had FHE every Monday except one, when Rhys was his sickest. It’s nice to do something other than just watch TV after Rhys goes to bed.
Boy oh boy. This was the sick month. On the first, I was sick. On the 8th, it was our ward’s fast and testimony meeting since the previous week was stake conference. I did participate in Relief Society and I bore my testimony, which I hadn’t done for a year! Then, the 15th, Rhys was very ill, so we didn’t go. Then, the 22nd we were at my family’s house, still trying to catch up on sleep from Rhys still being very ill.
– Run and exercise at least 5 times a week
– Try new types of exercise, such as kickboxing or yoga
– No sugar this month (I’ve done this for 3 years, I just didn’t do it last year since I was pregnant)
– Try 1 new veggie recipe
– Try 1 paleo recipe
– 1 green smoothie a week
