100% for 100 days

"Spirituality--our true aim--is the consciousness of victory over self and of communion with the infinite. Spirituality impels one to conquer difficulties and acquire more and more strength. To feel one's faculties unfolding and truth expanding the soul is one of life's sublimest exerpiences. Would that all might so live as to experience that ecstasy!"

-President David O. McKay

Our stake is doing a wonderful thing called 100% for 100 days. We started on September 17th so that the 100th day is on Christmas. The idea is that this activity is our gift to Christ. We have daily, weekly and monthly goals to reach 100% in.

Individual and family prayer
Individual and family scripture study
Acts of love and compassion to spouse

Date with spouse
Family home evening
Sabbath observance at ward of record
Magnify your calling

Fast and pay tithes and offerings
Temple attendance
Home and visiting teaching

It has been such a blessing in our lives, even in just these couple of weeks, for us to schedule a time each day to do our scripture study and prayers each day. It helps us to remember to put the Lord first and do those things that hold our lives together like glue. We both look forward to General Conference this weekend hear from the Lord's servants.


  1. I love you, sissy, and I love learning from you. Will you make it so I get emails of your blog every time you post?

  2. Me, too, to everything Katie said!
