Want to help those in Haiti?

My family has spent more time than usual in front of the TV watching the news of the earthquake victims in Haiti. There are several options for donating money which has been given on those news stations. I also wanted to suggest that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is also sending many resources over to help and is an excellent, trustworthy source where individuals can donate money to help in that cause. Follow the link here.

To see articles about how the Church has been aiding those in Haiti, see here and here.

"Good, Better, and Best" New Year's Goals

During our holiday vacation, Dad gave a great talk at church about how we should carefully pray and then evaluate our options when choosing our New Year's Goals. He used Elder Dallin H. Oaks talk from October 2007 "Good, Better and Best" when counselling that not all goals are of the same importance. Some are good, some are better and some are best. He encouraged us to prayerfully choose the best goals for each of us as individuals. He also wisely suggested that sometimes it is easy to know what the best goal is for a particular year; but other years it may take a few months before you know what your goal for that year really should be.

Later we had a similar discussion together for our Family Home Evening. I really appreciated that insight and have been thinking more deeply about my goals:)

Thanks Dad
