One Little Word 2012: Prepare

It's a new year and I have started Ali Edward's One Little Word class for the second year. I am so inspired by this idea - choosing a word instead of a bunch of goals. My goals are still there, but my one word ties them all together and doesn't make it so list-y.

My word for 2012 is PREPARE. There are many things I'd like to "prepare" this year, including a cleaner and more organized house, better meal planning and preparation, but my word this year came from here:

"Organize yourselves;
prepare every needful thing,
and establish a house, even a house of prayer,
a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning,
a house of God."
Doctrine and Covenants 109:8

The word Prepare came to me, and I can envision preparing my heart to welcome the Lord. I know that preparing my home is a big part of the peace and calm I want to feel in my heart. Usually when my house is in order my mind is more clear, thus inviting the spirit to dwell in the peace and quiet that I've made room for.

I hope to post more this year on how I'm progressing with my word. I wanted to put a picture up of my first assignment for class, but I'm still getting the hang of my new {exciting!} computer and I actually haven't uploaded any pics to iPhoto yet! It's on my list of things to get on right away, so stay tuned!
