Effectively speaking...

I have been studying The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It's affected me greatly. It has also had a significant effect on my family. I have been more kind to my family , and it isn't an affected kindness, truly I am trying to effect change within myself so that I can have more of a positive affect on others. As I have tried to put into effect the principles I have learned and I see how it is positively affecting my family I feel pretty darn good about the effect I am having.

Affectionately yours,

I need to read that book.

(I still have trouble with the effect/affect ; )

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm pretty sure I'm in your neck of the woods.

It's amazing how changing ourselves results in a change in those around us. The answer is so simple, yet can be so hard to apply!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I haven't been around much on the internet either. We just got our internet back in our home last week, so I'm just now able to read other blogs more often. :-)

WTG Mindy! "Kindness begins with ME!" Yesterday in Primary we focused our activity on 'kindness' and some of the simple things we do that show our love for others! The world needs a little more kindness and when we make a change it is like the stone thrown into the pond...the ripples continue on.... Have a great week.
