Ponderize

It has now been a whole week since General Conference! I don't know how many of you have downloaded the new set of talks in The Gospel Library, but I couldn't believe how fast they got those up! Seriously, the Captain and I checked on Wednesday and they were already ready to download! 

Anyway, today I wanted to talk a little bit about Ponderizing :) I was really happy when they mentioned it in conference and challenged us to do it.
If you missed the talk, here it is.

Also, Ponderizing for those who don't know, is Pondering and Memorizing, kind of mashed together. I liked that he talked about how it was a higher place for your thoughts to go. This week has been kind of crazy, but much better I think since we started the challenge. 
We chose Doctrine and Covenants 6:36


Which I felt was a good one to start on (Good job Captain on choosing it), because it's nice and short. I have always wanted to be good at memorizing, and have tried versions of this by myself before and not done so well.

There's something about doing something together as a community. About knowing that there are thousands of other people out there doing the same thing, even if you don't know them or they aren't in your exact situation. 

Anyway, I'm really excited to start Ponderizing a new scripture each week. I felt like this really helped me to get out of mental ruts. To stop myself from going in circles over things that didn't matter. To ponder new ways that I can apply this scripture into my life.
I'm grateful for the scriptures, and how readily available they are to me. :)

I hope that you all have a fantastic Sunday! Also, just so you know, the 40 days and 40 nights General Conference Challenge Starts tomorrow! Its not too late to hop on board! :)
