When we become a mother our lives are spent giving to the multitude. In the Lord’s vision of the purpose of families the Lord is giving us the opportunity to become more like him.
We have to try and find the spirituality in everyday life, if we learn to see these things as the Lord intends them.
Goals Sister Tanner has for us….
1. Fall in love with being a Mom.
2. Create a Christ centered home.
3. Feel successful.
This class will be overwhelming. Don’t be discouraged.
I try to come prepared with the Spirit. I feel a heavy responsibility when I do. Being a Mom & a Wife is a big responsibility. Conference is good, but it’s not real specific. You need to come with the Spirit prepared to hear you will be taught by the Spirit. If you come with the question you will receive the answer. It may be a prompting you get. It may be a comment someone else makes in the class. It may be something I say. Most likely it won’t be. It will be somewhere the Spirit teaches you.
Keep a Ponder Pad….I don’t want you to “ponder” them in class, but pick a day and go back and read your ponder pad and then ponder. Everything on it is not pure revelation. As you review it you will know the parts that are. They will still just ring to your heart. You will know exactly what you need to do with them. I will give you questions for you to ponder. I really want you to think about them in a serious way and answer them to yourself. They are critical to parenting, marriage, & family.
If you can teach your children to recognize and follow the promptings of the Spirit before they leave home that is the one thing they really need to know.
Gratitude is the foundation of spirituality.
