Holy Women

Last night I had the opportunity to go to a fireside put on by Sister Wendy Watson Nelson. It was wonderful. She talked about how we all had a "to do" list in the premortal life. The way that we can do everything on that "to do" list is by becoming holier woman. She sent out an email to 6 different women asking them if they would choose one task that they do each day and do it as a holy woman would do it. She said that the responses really touched her. Each woman responded that they wanted to keep their house cleaner and even more interesting to keep the floor clean. Sister Nelson thought maybe it had to do with "standing on holy ground" :) After listening to that message I thought it would be a good challenge for me to choose one task a day and do it as a Holy Woman would. We will see how it goes. And your mission if you choose to accept is to do the same. Let me know how it goes. I would love to hear. I will do the same.

I think about this concept all the time. I think about how our homes are supposed to emulate the temple and then I look at all the clutter on my desk. I am going to take care of it the way a holy woman would. Thanks for inspiring me.
