when i was pregnant my cousin told me i would be lucky to get a few verses of scriptures reading in once a day after my son was born. i remember thinking she was crazy. i was WAY more spiritual than that! well, here i am with a 1 year old, struggling to read a few verses every OTHER day:-). oh goodness. morning prayers have definitely been out like trout since B, but a couple of days a week i remember to stop to say them after i put brennan down for his first nap. mid-morning still counts:-) (in case you were wondering). i love prayer. i miss prayer. sean and i have figured out a way to say personal prayers every night. shazzzzzaaaam! (thanks for the word jackie, it's smokin'). after brennan's arrival my personal prayers took a back seat to family and couple prayers. if you're not spiritual i can imagine you think i must be praying far too much, or at least all day. that's okay. did you know that 15 min. of prayer/meditation daily has been shown to add 10 years onto your life? it's true, i heard it on oprah, lol. really, i did. dr. oz. what a guy! i think that 15 min. is supposed to be 15 consecutive minutes, but right now i'm working back into my routine. i remember being a single gal, waking up early to pray 15 min. before school, and going to be early to read my scriptures for 30 min. and say prayers for 15. wooooo weeee! i would love to make fun of it, but really it was a joy. i love the peace prayer brings. the feelings of confidence prayer brings to my life. the desire it gives me to be a little better, to help others a little more.
i think i just bore my testimony?
does that count for fast and testimony meeting too?
i can't wait for conference.
