Choose the Right Gift

Posted by: jennifer in Categories: Uncategorized.

The holidays are quickly approaching. Once Halloween candy and trick or treaters have come and gone, the stores will be in full Christmas mode. Sure, some people still remember that little holiday tucked in between Halloween and Christmas (you know, Thanksgiving) but for the most part gift giving, buying, lists, and festive spirits begin as soon as the Halloween costumes are put away.

What’s On Your Christmas List?

What do you have on your Christmas list this year? Do you have the endless list of people to buy for? Of course you do! On your list you probably have the “person who has everything,” “the hard to please,” “the quality gift,” and many more. You can get everyone on your list crossed off this year with just one stop at Tungsten CTR rings.

Stay On the Path

Last weekend, I took advantage of the gorgeous fall weather and went on a hike to a waterfall near my home. I decided since this wasn’t a very long hike to take my two nephews, 6-years old and 3-years old. The hike isn’t very long, but there are parts where the trail narrows. Before we left on the hike, I told my nephews to be sure to “stay on the path” and not go off the trail. I warned them we could get hurt if we went off the trail.

As we hiked, my little 3-year old nephew kept saying, “I’m staying on the path.” I thanked him for staying on the path and told him we were having a good time because he was obeying me. He would giggle and then we’d move on up the path towards the waterfall.

When my nephew would tell me he was staying on the path, it got me thinking about life. What path are we on in life? I looked at these little nephews of mine and wondered if I was teaching them correctly. Am I teaching them to choose the right? Am I teaching them to stay on the right path in life? The path that will keep them out of danger?

I thought about these questions all day long and pondered what I am teaching my nephews. Now granted, I’m not their mother, but I do have a responsibility to teach them correct principles. I can teach them by example. Just like on our hike to the waterfall, I told them before hand that we needed to stay on the path. And then, they followed my example by staying on the trail. Nobody got hurt and we all had a good time because we obeyed.

It’s the same with life. We have a loving Heavenly Father who tells us where to go. He teaches us to “stay on the path” and that there is safety in obeying. When we stay on the path and don’t stray, we have fun and we are kept safe from danger. We reach our “waterfall” and we enjoy the journey along the way.

I learned a valuable lesson taking that short hike with my nephews. I challenge you to think about the path you are on…are you where you need to be? Are there changes that need to be made in your life to get back on track?

Choosing the Right – It’s In Your Hands

Posted by: jennifer in Categories: Uncategorized.

Have you ever stopped to think about your hands? Sure, they are always there working and performing just as you need them to. You use your hands to brush your teeth, update your Facebook status, to touch, to comfort, to sustain life. You need your hands for just about everything in life.

But did you also realize that choosing the right and making good decisions is also in your hands? When you wear a CTR ring, you are constantly reminded of your decision to make good choices. A CTR ring is a daily reminder of the commitments and the values you take seriously in life.

A CTR ring is a lot like a wedding ring. When you wear a wedding ring, every time you touch your hands, look at your finger, or even just play with your ring, you are reminded of your vowes to stay true to your spouse. A CTR ring works the same way. Every time you look at your hands, you are reminded of your commitment to good.

So the next time you look at your hands, think about choosing the right. The next time you are going about your daily activities, remember, it’s in “your hands” to choose the right.

Take a Stand – Choose the Right

Posted by: jennifer in Categories: Uncategorized.

The political season is upon us.  Every time you turn on the TV, look in the newspaper, or even surf the internet, you’re bombarded with political messages. After awhile, all the campaign talk and the commercials seem like empty promises. Lots of talk, but not much action.

Where will you stand?

Have you ever stopped to think about where you stand? Do you stand on the left or the right? Are you somewhere in the middle? You know, where you stand doesn’t just refer to politics. Maybe you swing more to the right in your political affiliations, but where do you swing in your daily life? Do you take a stand for what you know is right? Do you stand up to those who are belittling your beliefs? Do you show others that you are choosing the right in your daily life?

More Than Politics

For many of us, the choices we are make are much more than a political statement. We do what we do because it’s the right thing to do. We do what we do because of a personal conviction. We all know those who will say one thing to one group of people and then act another way around a different group of people. Do you want to be one of those “flip floppers?” I don’t. Let’s take a stand together and remember what it is we believe. Let’s rally to choose the right.

What the World Needs

Many people may tell you that the world needs better health medicine, fairness, or even love. What the world really needs is more people who stand up for their personal convictions. We need more people in this world who will stand up for what they really believe in.

Where do you stand?

If Not You, Then Who

Posted by: jennifer in Categories: Uncategorized.

I had an interesting conversation with a co-worker. We were talking about sin and choosing the right. We were talking about our human nature and how it is our tendency, as human beings, to beat ourselves up, to think we aren’t good enough, to give up because we just “won’t ever make it.”

And then, my co-worker said something very poignant. He said, “Satan’s biggest tool is to make you feel inadequate and unworthy. If not you, then who?” It struck me then and there, “If not you, then who?” Of course Satan is targeting those who are working hard to be obedient, to make good choices, and to live a righteous life. Of course, these are the ones he’s going to tempt the most with self doubt. It all makes perfect sense, because those who are choosing the right are the ones that Satan wants to conquer. But remember, you are of great worth!

Satan can only tempt you as much as you let him. When you feel those feelings of self doubt and unworthiness slip in, stop. Just like we’re taught in elementary school when we learn what to do if we’re on fire: stop, drop, and roll. Stop the negative train of thought, drop to your knees, and roll into feeling more confident and self assured.

It’s often said, “When you can’t stand, kneel.” I believe this is a true principal. When the world is weighing you down and Satan’s temptations seem much more than we can possibly handle, drop to your knees and pray. Ask the Lord for the courage to be more. Pray for the strength to withstand those evil temptations. And pray without ceasing for the strength to be what you were born to be.

Remember, if not you, then who? Who will stand for right? Who will defend truth and right? If not you, then who? I want it to be me. I want to be the one who can be counted on the Lord’s side.
