I've gotten back to working on my Personal Progress, a program for young women ages 12-17 which incorporates reading certain scriptures and applying them into their lives. (Mothers are encouraged to work on it with their daughters.) LaLa & I had been working on this together but I have fallen behind since having my baby. It has been so nice to again have the one on one time with LaLa to talk about the scriptures we've read and to be able to bear testimony of its truths.
I really think this has helped strengthen LaLa's testimony, something she has struggled with and still feels like she's struggling with. But I've seen changes in her attitudes and understanding of the gospel. I hope it will become a strong foundation that she can fall back on during times of struggles.
Right now I'm reading various scripture verses about service and working on making that a daily part of my life. I know mothers are always serving but this is also about serving others as well. Taking the time to recognize & help with the needs of others or in letting others know that we are thinking of them and that we take a few minutes to show love for them.
When ye are in the service of others, you are serving God.
