First, conference was really incredible. I always walk away feeling ready to make some changes in my life. All to often there are things that I think are not "that bad." But you know what, they are. I just admitted to myself that it was "bad" but not "that bad." Well, when it comes to the gospel there isn't room for any grey area. This conference was a little different for me. When it was so I felt a different sense of rejuvenation. I felt like I had just attended a spiritual pep rally for my life, and you know what, I am ready to go out there and give Satan all I've got and I am ready to win. I am excited and pumped up and he is not going to know what hit him.
After each conference Colby and I like to take some time and evaluate our lives and say, "ya know, we really need to do better with this." I believe that there is always room for improvement. If you don't think there is, that is proof enough. We always have something that we could do better with.
So right after the last session Colby and I drove down the road where they are starting a new housing development. These homes are incredible! They are all million dollar homes as we have looked at the for sale signs. But we drove over and parked the car and walked around the neighbor hood. IT was a beautiful afternoon with just a slight chill in the air. We got Eden all bundled up and strolled down the lane.
Here are a few picture of our beautiful scenery.
It was so peaceful and it got Colby and I talking about the ideal home. I don't mean, the style of house I want, with these type of windows and this kind of floor plan. I mean, the feeling inside our home. We decided that we have a lot of distractions that take away from the spirit truly being in our home. There are so many movies that don't need to be there, TV shows that we just don't need to watch, and behavior that really needs improvement. Colby and I from the beginning decided we never wanted TV because there was nothing but inappropriate shows on anymore. Thought I do miss watching football games and seeing the news every once in a while. But then we thought was it worth it to be tempted by the other shows. The funny thing is we have a TV but no cable or satellite, but yet we can still get to the shows online! You just can't get away. But we decided that we didn't like the TV being the focal point of our home. So we are moving it out. We think so many more productive things can be done, many more memories could be made.
I cannot wait for tonight, for FHE we are sitting down and setting specific goals of how we can be more like how our Savior wants us to be.
I really love the gospel. And I have decided to raise my title of liberty, to remind me
what I am fighting for, what I am living for!
