Relationships by Matt Townsend

Prayer fight Strong, peaceful, confident and imperfect in gods presence When we come down here we don’t feel those attributes here we beat ourselves up. Don’t get caught up in the genders. Your not your job, your kids grade point average, your not their inadequcies Your ever frustrated about your children. Look at the father. “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience we are spiritual beings having a human experience” You are not your disorder. The body and mind and sprit are in a battle. Ony one will bring you the peace it brings to you father in heaven We are in the covenant to save me and to give me some mechanism to always remember him. When you have a battle to do your VT and HT where are you in your body that gives you anxiety? Mind, body, spirit. Mosiah 3:19. Natural man is an enemy to god. It happened since the fall of adam. Adam and Eve noticing their nakedness. Pornogrpahy Adam and body image Eve. Spirit wouldn’t focus on body. The mind noticed it. That’s when all 3 came together and that’s when the birth happened. We sit here on Earth and we aren’t perfect. We are a covenant people. We are one of 15 million people. Why am I here? When was the moment you felt the most alone? Imagine in that moment in your bedroom and you cry. In the middle you feel this peace and the savior is by your side. What does he do? Sits and holds you and pulls you in. That is the spirit of god. How fast did we get there? We remembered him! Fear that he is going to leave? Now is the time to prepare to meet god. Quit wasting your thoughts for tomorrow. Be here right now!! Song of redeeming love scripture.?? What am I worried about If I’m a daughter of god? It helps me deal with life when I’m in the spirit. Work on that first and then address the problems. Own it! Woman thy faith hath made thee whole. Relax! Where do you go when your in a predicament? The Lord. You go to The Lord to change you not them! It was for nephi to kill Laban. **What has The Lord commanded you specifically today to do in your life, family, marriage? Ex. Pray with your family, scripture study, FHE, family dinner, spend one on one time, Jesus looked to his god while he was in the garden. Likewise we need to look up so we can endure. We are just to stay in it We do it over and over again. Why do we have to keep enduring. We are here to be sons and daughters of god. We are to become gods. **Frame our goal in life to find the spirit in our life each day. **A sin is not just an act its an absence of spirit. Think of a family member that’s your biggest test? Imagine it’s done it’s over and they called everyone to church all those you love and in some room you get to walk in and your Savior’s there. He calls your family up and he calls the one up to the savior and The Lord anoints them. Their face has peace. Then the person you’ve struggled with is called up. What does The Lord do to that one? What do you feel witnessing it? That is how you should approach that person. Jesus Christ lives in the covenant. Pres Hinckley marriage advice in the temple “There you go, now you...

Trent’s Stand up Desk

Trent started working from home and he wanted a space where he could stand up and work. The only place it will work was in our bedroom in our little nook area where a TV should go but we haven’t had a TV in our bedroom for about 4 years now. I bought a tabletop from Ikea for $25 and Trent put 1×4’s underneath on each side of the table to hold it up. I had extra pallets outside from various projects and I decided to put one on the backside of the desk to hide the cords to all his technology. We added two legs underneath the pallet to raise it up. Now I need to add something above the desk to finish it off but it...

Letter from Trent

Thanks for caring for me yesterday when I sprained my foot. I am so grateful for your kindness and thoughtfulness. You are a good example to me of selfless love and I’m so blessed to be a part of your life. You are an amazing daughter of God and have so many talents that you have developed and shared. Your charity towards those you are around is easy for anyone to see. The young women instantly bond with you and can feel your genuine love for them. You have a wonderful heart and that is one of the things I love and admire most about you. You don’t worry about just yourself, you worry about others first. Thanks for being the kind of mother that will raise righteous children who will love and serve the Lord. Our children know you love them unconditionally and they know you have a testimony of Christ. There is nothing more I could ask for in a mother. I love you more each day my sweet Sarah Ann. I’m humbled that you put up with me and my weaknesses and continue to love me and be my example until I can learn to love and live like the Savior. I’ll continue to try and be the husband and father you need me to be and that you and our children deserve. I can’t put into words the deep love I feel for you and the motivation that gives me to be a better husband and father. I’ll love you forever my eternal companion. I love sooooooo...

As I’ve reflected on the words from conference, I’m reminded of how truly blessed I am to be your husband and have you as my wife. You make life easier, you make my work bearable, you make our children happy, you make our home like heaven and the spirit can be felt here. I want to be the husband you want me to be and I know that I can be a little more thoughtful a little more caring and little less prideful each day. Thanks for being loving and patient with me as I try to be a better husband and father. I can’t imagine what men must feel who have nagging and unsupportive wives. I’m so blessed! I love and cherish you my sweet Sarah Ann! I love you sooooo...
