personal progress - divine nature value experience #1

these are the requirements for divine nature value experience #1.

What are some of the divine qualities of a daughter of God? Read “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”; 2 Peter 1; Alma 7:23–24; and Doctrine and Covenants 121:45. In your own words, list the divine qualities discussed in your reading. Think about how you can discover and develop each of these qualities. Record your ideas in your journal.
i started by printing out a copy of "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" that would fit nicely into my  study journal.  i glued it in and then i read through the proclamation, highlighting anything that told me of the divine qualities that i posses and can develop.

next, i wrote the scripture references in the side margin of my study journal.  each reference got its own color. (i like to use color!)

next, as i read through each scripture reference, i looked for words or phrases that describe the divine qualities that are given to women.  as i read each one, i listed it on the journal page in the same color that i wrote the scripture reference with. some words were in more than one of the references and so they got decorated with each color.  for example, the quality of "faith" appeared in all 3 scripture references, so it was written in blue, underlined in black and re-underlined in red.  the quality of being "humble" only was only in the reference i wrote in black (Alma7:23-24) so it only appears that color.

 when i was all done, i ended up with a whole page of divine qualities.

the last thing to do for this value experience is to think about how you can discover and develop these qualities. on the next page of my journal i wrote down a few of the ways i could do this.
