"That is great Jim! For me, I found that even though I was regularly studying my scriptures, making this life-long commitment changed my mindset to look forward more (rather than back) and made a noticeable change in my mental approach to studying…"
"For me, the problem with remakes or covers in general is that I either have to be a fan of the artist or genre of the remake already. A cover of my favorite song in a genre I can't stand won't get any of my attention.
I think with a hymn,…"
FYI...I just took a sticky and made the commitment.
"Never again, for the rest of my life, will I miss a day in my personal scripture study."
It is signed today and is in the front of my scriptures. This a fantastic and…"
This is great! I had been sporadic in my daily scripture reading but about 5-6 years ago I made it a priority. I have not been perfect but pretty close and I get better all of the time. Daily reading of God's word has brought…"
"Yeah, I put this expectation on myself that I need to study an hour a day, just like on my mission. The thought is so overwhelming I end up not reading them at all. So I've been doing just a bit everyday. I'll read a few chapters. One…"
"When I was going through a divorce several years ago, my bishop had basically told me the same thing. Just the simple act of committing to read everyday will help put you in the mindset to hear the promptings of the spirit. It was one of the most…"
I love the 30 Days to a Better Man program, and it's what brought me here in the first place. But I'd like to add some additional tasks for us as brethren.Start by referring to 2 Nephi 32:3 -- Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.Life is full of questions and choices, however, if we are feasting on the words of…See More
"The Love & Logic thing makes a ton of sense to me. When my son was born I was 20 and all I really knew was how my parents disciplined.....well I guess the other thing I knew was that it wasn't the proper way. I made a few mistakes but it…"
"Sounds similar to the approach we have taken. Our 7 yr old is a great kid, but has a temper and gets mad at us when he's in trouble. I try to take the time to walk him through the logic of "you made a choice to do X, which has led to Y.…"
"This is a basic summary of the Love and Logic rules. The class we took was taught by what they call an Independent Facilitator, and was offered through the community education courses in our local school district.
They have different strategies for…"
"I also echo the general belt buckle rule that's already been established.
I've regularly used all the knots discussed. In my mind (right or wrong), they go from informal to formal in the following order: Four in Hand -> Pratt ->…"
Hi there Justin. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
"Of course there are people there who are not rich. I'm not referring to Swiss people, I'm referring to people from other countries wanting to live there. There are people mainly from Turkey living there doing menial jobs but they are all…"
"Re: Liam's comment, It also depends on how the program was framed from the get-go. My understanding of AA is that it's pure numbers and often leads to tokenism ("this guy's not qualified but I need X blacks on the crew to be…"
""I'd still have a problem with people getting preferential treatment because of things we can't change, such as sexual orientation, skin colour (unless it's Michael Jackson) etc."
IMO that's part of figuring all…"
"What I had in mind originally would've been having free movement between the UK and EU countries without us actually being in the EU. I'm aware that Switzerland has many bilateral treaties with the EU on different issues but I was thinking…"
