What a great date: 01/01/11

The kind of date that inspires one to set their goals and standards high in order to begin anew, moving forward into a better life.

For anyone, but especially those of us who have faced divorce, the new year brings with it recommitment and rededication to self-improvement. Our determination to advance and progress in life presupposes faith.

And it's faith that I want to write about today.

Elder Richard G. Scott told us in October conference that "(we) become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day...Strong moral character results from consistent correct choices in the trials and testing of life."

Divorce is definitely one of those trials.

Having experienced the losses of divorce, I understand the corrosive effects that self-doubt and uncertainty can have of our self-esteem.

I encourage those of you who are facing similar challenges to turn to the Lord as you set goals in order to reconstruct your pardigm. Only the Lord can help you see your experiences in relation to the beautiful tapestry of your life, and only He knows how to guide you on where to go from here.

Once you take Him by the hand, live the truths He has outlined for you. Act like, or mimic the person you hope to become--and that's how you will change. That's how we can become more like our Savior.

I testify that asking for His help in re-building your life, your world, and your character, is supremely important and He will be there to show you the way.

Here's a little New Year's gift below--a link to one of my favorite song's. It fits the new year's resolution topic, so enjoy! And Happy New Year!
