So today I was on pinterest and came across a pin about studying our Patriarchial Blessings. I have been reading in the Book of Mormon about when Nephi was trying to explain to Laman and Lemuel about what their dad said concerning the "natural branches of the olive-tree". I thought that I needed to study my patriarchial blessing and see what help and comfort it can give me today, since I have felt like I am failing at a few things. (One being how to parent our kids.)
So this website was saying that we should copy our blessings and then highlight in different colors the different aspects of our blessing. Well, there were things on their list that weren't in my blessing. So I went to lds.org and found a lesson given to young women about Patriarchal Blessings. There are three aspects that every blessing has: "a patriarchal blessing always confers promises upon us, becomes a
warning against failure in life, and a means of guidance in attaining
the blessings of the Lord."
I grabbed my colored pens and clear ruler, found my patriarchal blessing (where did I have it last?), and went to the printer.
After reading and re-reading my blessing, underlining, and re-reading, I think I now know where I need to focus my energies.
Now off to read my scriptures some more.
