B is for Believe, in oneself. Trust yourself to know what to do, what to say where to be etc. be guided by the scriptures, but the standards of the church, but he thing I know are real and true.

The abundance he speaks of is not material rather an inner richness Therefor inner changes or adjustments need to be made to find oneself living an abundant life.
Things I can do:
Read my scriptures daily
– Book of Mormon this year is the SundaySchoolreading.
– Relief Society Lesson Read & Ponder
Find ways to feel a greater love for my family,and to show it.
Visiting Teaching – go the extra mile
Be a good friend.
Earnestly and diligently seek the spirit. Action prompting I feel.
Open my heart – open my mind
Continue to strive for physical well being. It was President Ezra Taft Benson that reminded us there is a thin line between our physical and spiritual selves.
