#LightTheWorld

#LightTheWorld by Teaching Others

Jesus taught others, many times one-on-one.  He taught with patience and invited his learners to be active participants.  




The #LightTheWorld initiative topic today is "Jesus Taught Others and So Can You."  I'm trying to think of how I will participate in this particular challenge.  I think I will talk to my friend who wants to learn to play the piano, and I will see if there is a time we can get together to start. Clearly, that will take more than one afternoon (unless she happens to be living in some sort of Groundhog Day existence--if you don't understand the reference, watch the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day").  However, it isn't mandatory that the #LightTheWorld initiative be completed in full each day.  As we go about doing good each day, our little efforts will add up to something bigger.  As my friend will need to practice the piano a little each day until she becomes skilled, I will also need to practice acts of service a little each day until I become skilled at helping others.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Action-Packed Week, but in a Good Way

Last week, I was thankful for bruises that weren't breaks.  This week wasn't quite as adventurous as last, but I'm still a bit dizzy in the Wow has it just been a week since. . .  sort of way.
