None of my nunya

I realize all I’m saying here is technically it’s “none of my none of your.”  Which makes no sense at all.  But it is fun to say.  Much funner than to say “it’s none of your business.”  So, when I feel like I’m becoming a bit to Kravitz-y, I remind myself that it is none of my nunya.  In other words, nothing to see here, just keep moving.

General Conference thoughts: The Immediate Goodness of God

Right before I read this talk to prepare for this post I read the parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard in the New Testament.  This talk is a great cross reference for this parable.

The two examples Elder McKay shared about the women needing to know the goodness of God in their individual circumstances demonstrates that it does not matter if the laborer joins the work in the first or eleventh hour all receive the same wage.  Blessings are available to each and all that thrust in the sickle.

Of course, reading the examples of the two women in this talk no one will begrudge either one for receiving blessings.  Isn’t it marvelous to think that no matter when we “come to ourselves” the love is waiting for us to accept it?  And that there are no favorites or hierarchy when it comes to the Atonement of Christ.  It is simply waiting for us to utilize it – no matter how late we come?

I hate to inform you but history is not a concrete study

Sometimes two unrelated events come together and school you in a lesson. That happened for me a few years ago when I was trying to rise after a failure of sorts and needed some sort of affirmation that I could be good at something.  As I tried to find some validation I decided to combine two things that I like and see if I could make a go at it. So I combined my love of public speaking with local history and sought some outlet for the two. What I settled on was conducting cemetery tours.  The lesson I learned fairly quickly is that history is not as concrete as I thought it was.  Continue reading

General Conference thoughts: Prepared to Obtain Every Needful Thing

Here is the perspective of a single sister learning to adapt to the adjusted church schedule.  My study habits at home have not changed.  I have always attempted to study the lessons prior to attending class.  For me not a lot has changed on the home front.

However, on the church front it has become a little more challenging to receive what I need in class.  With the alternate Sunday schedule it is not always easy to get the broader study that comes with discussion.  I have had to develop other ways to get that last piece of the picture to come together.

With fewer opportunities to serve at church I have also had to change my mindset on callings.  This has opened doors for me to spend more of my energy and talents in the community rather than the church.

I’m fine. And you?

A regular reader of this little blog will know that a few years ago I hit a bit of a rough patch. Let me be clear, technically I was fine.  Physically I felt fine.  Nothing was wrong to the visible eye. My faith, though, was shaken; my future path uncertain.  When faith becomes so intertwined with one’s identity it becomes noticeable when that core loses its footing.  I couldn’t help it when my feelings and mood seeped into my blog posts.  So much so, I had faithful readers ask me about my well-being.  My foundation became shaky as I had to make a decision to stand or find a new foundation.  Let’s just say, things were up in the air a bit.  While I am still struggling a little I have continued on and tried to rebuild my foundation a bit more secure than before.  It is a process.  But that’s just a little background for the main point of this blog and that is this: you never know what struggle someone is fighting inside so be nice to people.  Seriously.
