Local Mormons To Hold Self-Reliance Conference This Saturday

Monday, April 16, 2018

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) will host a free self-reliance conference this Saturday, from 10 a.m.–noon at 3067 Ooltewah Ringgold Road, Ooltewah. All are invited.  

 

Topics include how to start a business, how to better your education and learn techniques for success, how to develop interview skills, and how to improve your finances both spiritually and temporally.

 

Why self-reliance?  As explained at lds.org, “There are great needs among us.  Many lack the ability to ‘provide the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family.’  Our modern-day prophets have counseled: ‘Self-reliance is a product of our work and undergirds all other welfare practices.’”  And so, we are encouraged to “work for what we need – to be self-reliant and independent.”

 

What is self-reliance?  “Self-reliance is the ability, commitment, and effort to provide the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family” (LDS Handbook).  Part of self-reliance includes assessing your needs, choosing a path, joining a group to develop spiritual habits and practical skills, and continuing to act, to keep working to become self-reliant.

 

As also stated, “To receive the blessings of self-reliance, we must accept and live the principles of self-reliance, which include the following:

 

1.

Exercise faith in Jesus Christ; 2., Use time wisely; 3. Be obedient; 4. Manage money; 5. Work: Take responsibility; 6. Solve problems; 7. Become one, Work together; 8. Communicate: Petition and listen; 9. Persevere; 10. Show integrity; 11. Seek learning and education; and 12. Stay on task, Receive ordinances.

 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, both locally and globally, invites all people everywhere to “diligently study” and “apply” these principles so that your life will be blessed.  In so doing, “You will learn how to act on your path toward greater self-reliance.”
