Happy Fall! Can you believe it? Whether Summer flew by or not, we’re here. We made it. School is back in session (kind of)!

This time of year can get busy fast. Homework, extracurricular activities, and conflicting schedules make it easy to put our gospel learning on the back burner. I know I’m guilty of this!

I know I can be better. So, I decided to compile a list of sure-fire ways to incorporate Christ and His gospel into my back-to-school schedule! Let’s go!

Mighty Mornings

Growing up, mornings were pretty hectic. I wonder if they would have been a bit better if I had put God first in my day?

Try waking up just five minutes earlier than usual. Give those five minutes to God by reading a talk or a chapter of scripture.

Take time to say a prayer with your kids or read them a verse before they head out the door. I’m a big believer that it will give your day a fantastic boost!

Spreading the Word

As a returned-missionary, I am constantly trying to spread the gospel in my college classes. When making new friends, I make sure they know I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

Perhaps you could challenge your kids (or yourself) to compliment someone every day! Or share a scripture with someone once a week. These fun challenges will spread the Light of Christ wherever you may be.
