Asking the Lord for further light and knowledge is essential to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord will open the windows of Heaven and bless us with more understanding and guidance for us and our families if we simply ASK!!!

 

–QUESTIONS–

  • What does our family need to learn this week?
  • What lessons would help our family with our struggles this week? (often I am more specific)
  • What Spiritual Gift should we learn about this week?
  • Who needs to teach each lesson this week?
  • What message do you have for us this week?

 

I often have more questions than this or am more specific but I hope this will help you get started if you are not ASKING already 🙂

–BOOK–

This book is AWESOME, all of Wendy Nelson’s books are great! This one will help you start to think about the importance of ASKING questions.

“Questions are powerful agents of change. Do you want better relationships? Ask better questions. Do you want a great life? Learn to ask great questions. The questions we ask ourselves and others can significantly influence the kind of lives we create. They can motivate or they can demoralize. They can increase our ability to solve problems or they can make situations worse.”
