Amaze You

This counsel by our Prophet, Russell M. Nelson
is changing my life.
I have been studying this particular part relentlessly lately:

"Sometimes we speak almost casually about walking away 
from the world with its contention, pervasive temptations, and false philosophies. 
But truly doing so requires you to examine your life meticulously and regularly. 
As you do so, the Holy Ghost will prompt you about what is no longer needful, 
what is no longer worthy of your time and energy.

As you shift your focus away from worldly distractions, 
some things that seem important to you now will recede in priority. 
You will need to say no to some things, even though they may seem harmless. 
As you embark upon and continue this lifelong process of
 consecrating your life to the Lord, the changes in your perspective, 
feelings, and spiritual strength will amaze you!"

I am determining with the help of the Lord what is "no longer needful,
what is no longer worthy of [my] time and energy".
And I think in the coming months I am going to be making some changes
so I can become a better mother, wife, and minister for the Lord.
I look forward to that.
