you first start, but a years later you look forward to reading that verse and pondering it each morning to start your day off right. Once that's easy though, you may need to start reading more, or spending time memorizing some scriptures, or using that time to study for your calling as a sunday school teacher rather than just enjoying a nice spiritual thought. Those things take more work and might not be as convenient as your original goal, but they will help you become better and thus would be better for you. It can be anything, it doesn't have to even be church related. The point is, the more we reevaluate our goals and habits to make sure we are always pushing ourselves, the less our growth will plateau and the closer we will get to our highest potential!
Challenge of the week, then, is this: pick something that you want to get good at or are already working toward, set a long-term goal about what you want to acheive, then plan checkpoints every few days, weeks, months, or years (depending on the nature of the goal) and determine that at some point on those days, you will check where you are at with your goal, what you've been doing that works, what you've been doing that doesn't, and how you can more effectively pursue that goal until the next point. I promise that if you do, your life will be harder, you will be happier, and you will accomplish more.
This church is the church of Jesus Christ himself, I know that. This work is a miracle. The saying is true that, "If the church were not true, the missionaries would have messed it up a long time ago!" I love you all and wish you all success as you each personally strive to be better!
Best of luck and my love!

It's sometimes hard to give up habits that are bad, but it's definitely hard to give up GOOD habits that have helped us to grow and become better, but sometimes those good habits, when they no longer challenge us, can hinder our growth more than help. For example, reading one verse of scriptures a day might be hard when
