2017 Personal Resolutions/Goals

Standard

My main New Year’s resolutions/goals are:

  1. To be more kind/friendly to people I don’t well
  2. Read the scriptures more consistently. I’ve never read the Pearl of Great Price. So that should be my main focus of scriptures to read/study for awhile.
  3. I’d like to make more of an effort to spend time with my friends/family. I don’t travel that often anymore, but it’d be good to be able to visit with some of my friends if I travel close to where they live.
