2014 Stake Goals

Waco Texas Stake Goals for 2014

1. Improve spiritual strength of each member

Select one or two of the following suggestions to work on each month; if you feel so inspired, utilize other Gospel principles to strengthen you spiritually.

a. Daily, kneeling prayer; before beginning, ponder a few minutes on your blessings and needs. At least once a week, offer a prayer of gratitude; don’t ask for anything, just give thanks.

b. As you read the scriptures daily, ask yourself, “How do these verses relate to my life TODAY?”

c. Select 10 favorite scripture passages to memorize; pray for opportunities to share these verses with a friend or neighbor.

d. When you fast, have a specific purpose, prayerfully selected. Ponder on that purpose often throughout the fast.

e. Study the conference talks from the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve. Look for the Prophetic Priorities that can be applied in your life.

f. Read the Priesthood/Relief Society lessons before Sunday.

g. Hold a personal evaluation of your media involvement. Consider eliminating, or at least minimizing, media that is distracting to the Spirit or that takes too much time away from the family.

2Continued involvement in Family History Work

a. All members of the family age 12 years and older register at www.familysearch.org

b. Complete at least four generations of family history (you, your parents, your grandparents, your great-grandparents). Has all the temple work been completed for those four                    generations?

c. Each family have a copy of Member’s Guide to Temple and  Family History Work. Use for individual or family study,  including Family Home Evening lessons.  Pray for                            opportunities to share what you have learned about Family History work with friends and neighbors. Invite them to be involved in Family History work also.
3. Meaningful community service
Look for an opportunity to be involved in at least one community service project during the year. Invite your friends and neighbors to join you.
