The Power of Self-Mastery

Church was cancelled today due to the blizzard we have had here in OH. We held our own church meeting which Tyler taught on keeping the Sabbath day holy. After Tyler taught us out of the Gospel Principles manual, we have decided to not play video games on Sunday. And since we JUST bought the wii on friday - let me tell you how difficult that was to follow today! Especially with our being snowed-in and everything...but somehow, we survived. :o)

Tomorrow I am restarting back on the diet/exercise program (South beach diet/YMCA). I'm determined to gain self-mastery over my addiction to food. Here is a very helpful talk by Pres James E Faust on self-mastery. I'm also reading a book by Dr. Phil on weight loss, which I think will help me as well. I'm excited to see how my life will change with my determination to accomplish this great task and by allowing God to help me through it. I am so blessed to have the gospel in my life - it leads me forward and gives me hope in the midst of my challenges.
