Come, Follow Me: December 7-13
Book of Mormon: Moroni 7-9

Today's tool for you and your family come by way of Mormon's letter to his son Moroni reminding him of the importance of endurance of faith and the the promise that God will keep you through this process of endurance.

We read in Moroni 8:3 that
I am mindful of you always in my prayers, continually praying unto God the Father in the name of his Holy Child, Jesus, that he, through his infinite goodness and grace, will keep you through the endurance of faith on his name to the end.

So how do we cultivate an endurance of Fatih? What can we do daily? How can we measure our progress?

We found our answers in Moroni 7:45-48

Come join us to learn how you can practice faith daily, increase your endurance of faith, and measure your progress easier and with more accuracy.

Here are just a couple tools to help get you started on your discovery of endurance of faith:
1. Comparison can be the thief of endurance and faith or it can be the catalyst to increased endurance of faith.  Learn now how to compare the things that build you and your faith.

2. Charity endureth all things so it is inextricably connected to an increased endurance of faith.  If we can practice charity we are building our endurance of faith. Choose one of these from Moroni 7:45 and start practicing charity today:
{A} suffereth long,
{B} be kind,
{C} envieth not,
{D} is not puffed up,
{E} seeketh not her own,
{F} is not easily provoked,
{G} thinketh no evil, and
{H} rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth
{I} Any number of other options found in Moroni 7:45-48
{J} #HearHim - if something is coming to your mind that helps you love more and remember Christ do that. It doesn't have to fit this exact language. Although, I would venture to say that whatever you are being inspired by the Holy Ghost to do is probably a more specific version of one listed here.

3. Commit to practicing the one you chose from tool #2 above for 7 days.

4. Measure Your Progress - If you have read or listened this far and you are participating in the process of identifying an area you want to practice to build your endurance then you are a little stronger than you were yesterday and your endurance of faith is growing. Give yourself credit for the small steps.  By small and simple things great things are brought to pass. Don't forget to count the small stuff, the stuff that is making all the difference in building your endurance of faith.

We hope you enjoy this weeks episode and we can't wait to wrap up the Book of Mormon with you next week.
