Charge Your Spirit Printable/Handout

Sometimes I have a difficult time finding balance in my life.

It's hard to be a mom, a bishop's wife, a leader in my church, a piano teacher, a crafter, and a blogger.

Sometimes things get thrown out of whack, and I spend too much time on things that really aren't my top priorities.

As a spiritual person, I believe in reading God's word in the scriptures, and I believe in daily prayer.  We're pretty darn good at doing those things with our family, but you know what?  I have a hard time doing them by myself.

(I'm really good at making excuses though :)

The other day I was sitting by the pool while my kids were swimming, and I was reading a talk by Randall L. Ridd that was given to the youth of our church this past April.  It's mostly about technology and making good choices, but there was a part in the talk that really stood out to me.

He said the following:
     "If you don't regularly recharge your cell phone, it is useless, and you feel lost and out of touch.  You wouldn't think of going a single day without charging your battery.
      As important as it is to leave home every day with a full charge on your cell phone, it is far more important to be fully charged spiritually."  ("The Choice Generation", Conference Report  April 2014).

Then he issued a challenge:
     "Every time you plug in your phone, use it as a reminder to ask yourself if you have plugged in to the most important source of spiritual power-- prayer and scripture study, which will charge you with inspiration through the Holy Ghost." 

Wow.  What a great idea!  I definitely make sure my phone is charged nightly, and that is the perfect opportunity for me to say- wait!  Have I done the things I know I should do?  Did I say a prayer?  Did I take time to read my scriptures?  Did I listen for inspiration?

To help me remember, I made this little printable, and I thought I'd make it available to you too.  If you're spiritually minded like me, I hope this will be helpful to you or to someone you know!  

You can download this here.  It's sized at 4x6 but you could make it smaller for a handout.
