I realize that this post will be a departure from my normal immaturity. I am having a bout of adulthood right now, and I feel like I need to share my thoughts with my dear and faithful readership (all one or two of you).

On Sunday, our ward bishop gave a lesson on recognizing answers to prayer. I was deeply touched by his lesson, feeling like it was an answer to my own prayers. I've been seeking to understand better what decisions I should ask for help making, and when I don't feel any specific guidance if I should wait for confirmation or just move forward. I came to the conclusion that when I do pray about a decision, if I don't feel a specific answer, I should just move forward with whatever option seems best based on my best judgment. But I've doubted the conclusion that I came to, until Sunday.

The bishop used a talk given by Elder Richard G. Scott in 1989 to frame his own thoughts. I am overwhelmed after reading it with how directly my questions are answered. With the thought that others might have the same questions I do, I write about it on my blog. Enjoy!


  1. you mean other people read this blog too...? thanks for the link to the talk--we're making some pretty big financial decisions right now, and it's just what i needed to read!

  2. I love! Thanks--that WAS a good lesson, no? So glad you found my blog! I will be frequenting yours, now, with your blessing...

  3. I love it! I'm really glad that the talk helped you. I've had quite a few humbling experiences with prayer. It's amazing how powerful it is.


Tell me something good.
