Hello,

I haven't posted in a long time, and I don't have anything from the Ensign to contribute to my challenge! My willpower went out the window from Thanksgiving through the first of the year (the all too common tale) but I am taking another stab at health. I spent a lot of time in prayer about it over the weekend, and have been reading my way through the Book of Mormon... Saturday night happened to be Alma 13. The Lord truly knows what we need when we need it. I encourage you to read Alma 13: 27-29. As Elder Scott encouraged us to try to memorize a scripture in the last conference, I am going to try and memorize this from Alma 13. It is all about temptation, and sugar addiction is something I struggle with and struggled with all through the holidays. Now that the holidays are over and my cupboards are emptied of troublesome treats, I am going to recommit -- this scripture is a reminder that the Lord is there to lead us through ALL temptations, whatever they may be.

Good luck and blessings in 2012! This will be a good year.

I got my November Ensign in the mail today. Can you find anything in it that would be specific to your journey of health? I'm going to try and see what I can find and I would love to hear about if anybody else found anything good!
