It is our duty to be better today than we were yesterday, and better tomorrow than we are today.
–Spencer W. Kimball
It’s that time of year . . . you know, the one you try to avoid? Ok, maybe it’s just me who tries to avoid setting goals because I know I won’t complete them! For me, the Eternal Warriors program is what I needed to make me accountable to setting goals and reaching them. It is an excellent way to overcome weaknesses and tackle behaviors you want to change.
“Most of us clearly understand that the Atonement is for sinners. I am not so sure, however, that we know and understand that the Atonement is also for saints—for good men and women who are obedient, worthy, and conscientious and who are striving to become better.”
–David A. Bednar
As a part of the class you identify 3 target behaviors that you want to improve at. Such as:
- Controlled use of video games
- Controlled use of social media
- Waking up at a certain time each day.
- Eating limited sweets.
- Daily family prayer.
- Daily meditation practice
- More patience
Along with the target behaviors you are required to do the following daily actions:
- 5 min prayer 2x daily.
- letter to God or future spouse.
- 5 min reading scripture or recommended literature.
I am so glad that Sheridan invited me to take her class. I really wanted bedtime to be a smoother more peaceful process. Sadly, it was not uncommon for me to lose my cool. Yelling was a normal part of the bedtime routine that I wanted to change. It was not an overnight change for me. I needed to be accountable everyday with my journaling and being aware of what was triggering me and how to stop the cycle. And eventually, I got there. Bedtime may be chaotic but I am not. Yelling is no longer a part of the process. Can I get round of applause?! Seriously, it wasn’t happening with just writing the goal down in my journal. I needed the knowledge and drills that are a part of Eternal Warriors.
What have you been waiting to change about yourself?
Stop wishing and get started!
This class is great for adults and youth.
