I try very hard to live by what the Holy Ghost impresses on me to do. I have found through sad experience that if I do not follow a prompting things turn out bad for me. I live a busy life. Between work and Church service I have little free time. But I try to make time for the things that count.
I try to read the scriptures each day, right after I wake up. I find that if I wait until later in the day I tend to forget to read them.
When I was in the Young Men's Presidency I grew to love the youth of my Ward. I consider them my sons and daughters.
When I was called as the Ward Mission Leader I did not realize how much work it is helping the missionaries. These great young men that I have had the honor of working with, teaching, helping, etc. has been a great growing experience for me. Since I now have figured out how to be a good Ward Mission Leader I expect to be getting a new calling soon. This is what always happens to be, when I become comfortable in a calling I move on to the another calling.
Well I was a bit prophetic when I wrote the above, because I have just been made the High Priest Group Leader. Now I have to learn how to do a new calling.
I am looking for a woman who will be willing to do scripture study as a family, and do personal scripture study. Someone who I can help to return to our Heavenly Father and who will help me to return to our Heavenly Father. It is a two way partnership to return to Him.
