March More Like Him Update

I have made it a personal goal to be more like the Savior.  To do and act more like he would in situations.  To do things differently than I have in the past.  This has been very shaping in my personality.

I learned that I do service a lot more than I give myself credit for.  I have found patience in places I am normally not patient in.  I have picked up things that I have forgotten to do well. 

I am seeing the Lord more and more in my life.  I feel the Spirit acting more and didn't realize how much He was missing.  Not for the doing of wrong things, but for doing so many things that I forgot to listen.

I am reminded of this scripture:

John 14:27

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

I think I am more at peace and in that peace I see things differently.  I am finding a growth in what I already know to be true spiritually.  My family is rebonding after a tough late fall and winter with a learning teenager.  We laugh and love together, just like when the kids were little.  Prayers are being answered to life little things.  Like the Tompot's hiring Kota until he leaves in just a couple months, which will decrease a financial burden. 

The understanding that my new visiting teaching list is for growth in me and not in my comfort zone, but if I go forward with help from the Lord all will be well. 

Overall, March has been peaceful.


  1. Glad such good things are happening for you! I am trying to do the same and seeing some similar results. I am looking forward to conference to see if I get any more impressions of things I can do to be more like Him.


  2. i enjoyed your post. Thanks for the Word.

  3. I'm glad you are finding peace within your changes. Enjoy that vt growth. :)

  4. You're doing a really good job of sticking with this plan. With the Savior as a guide, it can't help but be a success. I haven't seen my new list, if I have one, but I'm hoping to be a better VT than I have been this year. You can be my inspiration!
