I had such a great weekend. I had the opportunity to attend a women’s retreat in a lovely beach house in Galveston. It was so nice to be surrounded by wonderful women with such strong testimonies of our Savior Jesus Christ. The theme for the weekend was:
No Regrets! Believe, Hope, and Endure
“May we live so that when that final summons is heard, we may have no serious regrets, no unfinished business, but will be able to say with the Apostle Paul, ‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.'” (2 Timothy 4:7)
-Thomas Monson October 2001 General Conference
*30 minute Muscle Blast class followed by 20 minutes on the bike*
*Went running with the girls at the beach- approximately 45 mins*
Carman and I presented a lesson on Hope. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach this class because I learned so much myself.
We talked about the fact that we have the power to choose our thoughts. We referenced a quote from the movie “Eat, Pray, Love”…
This quote takes place while Elizabeth is at the Ashram in India and she met Richard from Texas.. She is struggling with her focus during meditation because she cannot stop thinking about her failed relationship with her ex-husband. She broods constantly about a couple circumstances in her life.
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”
Here is a copy of the hand out we put together… This is an awesome quote:
