The Beginning of A Day in the Faith

Introduction

I’m not perfect, really pretty far from it. And I really struggle with studying my scriptures, especially since starting Come, Follow Me.


You see, I have a hard time with routine. I know it’s cheesy, but I honestly believe that variety is the spice of life. And I am all about it. With it being the new year, (I know I’m late. I struggle, remember?) I decided to give Come, Follow Me one more try.


I have always loved The Doctrine and Covenants. I love the history and how every chapter is an actual answer to prayers of living saints. This was the perfect opportunity to get back on track with my scripture study.


Now don’t get me wrong, I am very passionate about my faith, I just find reading the scriptures tedious and time-consuming at times. Once I get started, I love it. It’s getting started that is the hardest part for me. While doing the first study section in the 2021 Individuals and Family Come, Follow Me I had a series of impressions. “Why am I not passionate about reading the scriptures?” “Well”, I thought to myself, “When I’m just reading, I don’t learn all that much.” “Have you thought about studying more? This is why I gave you Come, Follow Me?” That hit me hard. I do love studying the scriptures. I just have a hard time when I don’t share my studies when I am just doing it to be obedient. The human side of me needs something more.


“What are you passionate about?”


Learning, websites, teaching, designing, strategy, other people.


And then it hit me. If I was to start a blog, create a community, where I could study and share my learnings with other people. If I had a purpose in my studies besides it being what I am supposed to do, maybe I can be passionate about studying again.


And here we are. I hope you all love this as much as I am going to. I hope that we can trust in the Lord and share in His love as we strive to grow closer to Him.
