replenishes yousellf

I was reading a talk “Daughters of God” by Elder Ballard today and he said” sisters, find some time for yourself to cultivate your gifts and interests. Pick one or two things that you would like to learn or do that will enrich your life, and make time for them. Water cannot be drawn from an empty well, and if you are not setting aside a little time for what replenishes you, you will have less and less to give to others, even to your children.” It really hit me I could not think of the last time I had done anything for me. I thought it was selfish but when he said we can’t give when we have nothing it made me think.

Today’s challenge is to find something that “replenishes you” and talk some time to for your self.


  1. good idea! I really like that talk. Thanks Sarah!

  2. What a neat blog. I love all these challenges--small or big. Such good reminders!
