*In my General Studies class we focused most of our time on learning BYU-Idaho's 5 Principles of Learning which are:
Learn by the Holy Ghost.
Lay hold of the word of God.
Act for Yourself.
Love, Serve, and Teach One Another.
We also focused a lot on BYU-I's Honor Code which includes being honest in your academics, using clean language, respecting others, living a chaste and honest life, and adhering to the university's dress code. I am thankful for the opportunity to follow this honor code because it is an opportunity for me to show that I can be obedient to things that are important to God. They may seem like rules that take away freedom or fun, but I do not see them in that light. I see them as guidelines that are there to help me be successful and safe and I am committed to following them.
*In my religion class we are studying about the divinity of the Book of Mormon and all I can say is W-O-W. Only 3 weeks into this school thing and my brain and spirit are already overflowing with information. There are so many instances that have happened that testify of the divinity of the Book of Mormon and a lot of those have been summed up beautifully in this video clip. If you have ever been curious as to why I talk so much about this gospel and about the Book of Mormon, please watch this video. And not only watch it, but watch it with an open heart, not looking to criticize or belittle. As you do that, I hope that you will feel the beautiful spirit of the video and have your mind open to the knowledge that this book is truly from God.
Well, I guess it's time to get back to work. Thank you for following me on my journey back to school. Here's to learning, loving, and growing...and doing hard things.
