FAVOR... I WANT IT...in my own eyes

We set goals when we are feeling need to improvement. We change the food we eat and we may even speed up the pace we walk. Amongst these changes we strive for our potential to increase. Amongst these changes we have our exemplar that grew in light and knowledge as he aged. Line upon line.
We can't lose 20 pounds unless we prepare to lose 2. It may sound crazy but the Savior grew in stature as He exercised obedience. So it is with resolutions, our obedience and commitment to the goals will give us success.
Secret, through efforts of obedience I have sinned and fallen short, repented and try again.

The biggest lose we give ourselves is giving up.
There were four categories the Savior progressed in and I choose to follow those:

1- Keep a zero balance on line of credit and credit cards.

b. weekly listing needs and wants and discussing the importance of each with anyone interested.

2- Plan for the BFA application FEB. 18. 6-12 pieces.
