So my dear sweet companion, Sister Stevenett, and I have been talking about what I should post about.
Something that we talk and teach a lot about is what we call CPR. No, not like the doctors. Unlike that CPR, which is for your physical body; this CPR is for your spirit.
Whenever we see someone fall away from the church or their testimony it is because they are forgetting one of the three things within CPR. Without the basics or the fundamentals we will never become masters at anything.
So if you haven't figured it out yet, CPR stands for: Church, Pray, and Read.
Church attendance is so crucial. There is a great friendship and strength that comes from attending church. The most important thing though, is being able to partake of the sacrament and remember the sacrifice of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
Pray. How easy is that? And yet sometimes it is just so hard. But it shouldn't be. All it is, is us talking with our Father in Heaven. He just wants to know how you are doing. He loves you so much!!
Read! One of the greatest ways that God will speaks to us is through the scriptures. By reading the words of the prophets we are able to learn God's plan for us.
I know that when we do these things that we are greatly blessed. We will find answers to our prayers, guidance, and peace. As we read in the book of Alma 37:6 " Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise." As we change our attitudes from these things being something that we have to do and a chore to complete; into an attitude of something that we want to do and we crave, greater blessings will come.
