I got thinking about family names as I was reading Helaman 5:6 today: ". Behold, I have given unto you the names of our first parents who came out of the land of Jerusalem; and this I have done that when you remember your names ye may remember them; and when ye remember them ye may remember their works; and when ye remember their works ye may know how that it is said, and also written, that they were good." Each one of my children has a middle name named after a family member. My oldest is named after my dad. I hope that he can be loving, accepting, and nature loving as his grandfather is. My second boy is named after his great grandfather. I hope he can be diligent, and wise like him. And baby girl is named after her great grandmother. I hope she can model her class and lady like manner. Family history is a complex subject for me. Much of my ancestors were not what I'd call good examples. But the ones that ARE good examples mean so much to me and I hope to share their stories with my children more as time goes on. I believe we can gain more purpose and direction from family history.

I stopped trying to be what I thought people wanted a long time ago. When I was chubby I was told I could loose weight. When I lost weight I was told to not loose any more because I was too skinny. When I was too loud, sarcastic, open, vulnerable someone usually had something to say. I kept trying to adjust so people would like me but then I didn't really like me. Look in the mirror and like what you see. Change something because you want to. Do things because they bring you joy. The things people say may still be hurtful but when you own who you are they won't rule your life. You will. #youbeyou #takecharge #iloveme

Saving & investing for retirement is very similar to Jiu Jitsu. Imagine if you will a person that has never saved or invested a dime. They start off with little to no money, knowledge and are usually afraid of losing the little money they have. Now imagine a person who has started training Jiu Jitsu. They usually start with little to no experience, knowledge of the techniques or concepts and are afraid of getting hurt or hurting their ego. With the right coach, concepts, strategies and game plan, many people can and do succeed in both Jiu Jitsu and their financial lives. Here's a tip from Roger Gracie, don't over complicate things. Keep it simple. Look for a process and products you understand or find someone who can simplify the process & products so they make sense to you. Then get started, you don't have to become an expert. Waiting until you know everything or until you're rich to start putting money away is like waiting to start training until you're in shape. You'll grow old without ever doing anything and being old and broke sucks. #lds #family #money #bjj #jiujitsu #oss #jiujitsulifestyle #rogergracie #hustle #sanantonio #texas #210

Please, my beloved brothers and sisters, we must stop comparing ourselves to others. We torture ourselves needlessly by competing and comparing. We falsely judge our self-worth by the things we do or don’t have and by the opinions of others. If we must compare, let us compare how we were in the past to how we are today—and even to how we want to be in the future. The only opinion of us that matters is what our Heavenly Father thinks of us. Please sincerely ask Him what He thinks of you. He will love and correct but never discourage us; that is Satan’s trick. • Let me be direct and clear. The answers to the questions “Am I good enough?” and “Will I make it?” are “Yes! You are going to be good enough” and “Yes, you are going to make it as long as you keep repenting and do not rationalize or rebel.” The God of heaven is not a heartless referee looking for any excuse to throw us out of the game. He is our perfectly loving Father, who yearns more than anything else to have all of His children come back home and live with Him as families forever. He truly gave His Only Begotten Son that we might not perish but have everlasting life! Please believe, and please take hope and comfort from, this eternal truth. Our Heavenly Father intends for us to make it! That is His work and His glory. –Elder J. Devn Cornish #lds #mormon #ldsconf #motivation

I love the temple and the blessings that come from it. The temple can strengthen and bring us closer to Christ. I love it when I do family history and take my ancestors to the temple. There are so many blessings waiting for you!!
