An important aspect of any individualized review course is the development of effective study habits. The study units will guide you through a specific series of study questions designed to broaden your knowledge. However, successful completion of workbook and study guide depends a great deal on you : your study habits, motivation, perseverance, and organization. To assist you in developing necessary study skills, the following suggestions are offered:

Budgeting Time

To make this review course successful, you must budget your time. A well- planned schedule will actually save time and increase efficiency of your study periods.The most important characteristics of a study schedule is that it will keep you from speculating about what you are going to do next. Use the schedule to develop your personal study schedule.

Place for Study

You must find a quiet place to study. Locate an area that has good lighting, adequate ventilation, a good- sized desk or table, and no distraction. The last factor is most important because a few interruptions can negate what was intended to be a productive study session. You may be able to find a suitable study area at work. Possibly you are close to a public library or medical library. If, however, you must study at home, explain the importance of noninterrupted study sessions to family members and elicit their cooperation.


Your best bet is to stay away from the television, particularly if you are likely to watch it a great deal. In fact, you might even consider unplugging it for 2 or 3 months. You may actually find it enjoyable to to spend your evenings doing other activities.


You should maintain your physical condition during 2 or 3 months of preparation studying. This include regular meals, exercise, and sleep. You cannot expect to study effectively if your mind and body are not in peak condition.

Study Group

The workbook and study guide is designed to make studying alone much more effective. You may wish to schedule periods during the week for reviewing information with your friends. However, these review sessions should not infringed on your previously scheduled study time.


Procrastination will probably be your biggest threat. It is usually the result of trying to meet a deadline. Procrastination can be eliminated from your repertoire of behavior if two simple rules are followed : 1.) Watch for excuses, the hallmark of procrastination. Excuses for not studying must be challenged by rational thoughts. You must sell yourself on the importance of books and study guide. 2.) Stick to your study schedule. Deviating from your schedule will eventually lead to th evicious cycle called PROCRASTINATION.


Since Mother's Day is fast approaching. Let me share with you some insights about "Motherhood" which I think should be our main focus as of this time. "Motherhood is near to divinity." It is the highest and holliest calling. It is next to the angels. This divine service of motherhood can be rendered only by mothers. It may not passed to others. Mothers are to conceive, bear, nourish, love and train. They are to be helpmates, and are to counsel with their husbands.
Isn't that beautiful? A mother praying to bear a child. I have always love the words of Solomon : "Children are an heritage of the Lord : and ..... happy is the man (and woman) that hath (their) quiver full of them" (Psalm 127:3-5). Young mothers and fathers do not postpone having your children. Do not use the reasoning of the world. Mothers who enjoy good health, have your children and have them early. Blessed is the family who have a family of children. The deepest joys and blessings in life are associated with family, parenthood, and sacrifice. To have those sweet spirits come into the home is worth practically any sacrifice.

LDS-Primary Song

Mother I love you, Mother I do.
Father In Heaven has send me to you.
When I am near you, I love to hear you
Singing so softly that you love me too.
Mother, I love you, I love you I do.

Mother's Day Poem

You were there when we took our first steps, And went unsteadily across the floor.You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,Until our steps took us out the door...You worry now, "Are they ok?" Is there more you could have done? As we walk the paths of our unknown You wonder,
"Where have my children gone?"Where we are is where you have led us, With your special love you showed us a way, To believe in ourselves and the decisions we make. Taking on the challenge of life day to-day. And where we go you can be sure, In spirit you shall never be alone. For where you are is what matters most to us, Because to us that will always be home...

A Loving Relationship

  • A Loving Relationship is a choice partnership. Loving someone in whom even imperfection is seen as possibility and, therefore, a thing of beauty: where discovery struggle and acceptance are the basis of continued growth and wonderment.
  • A Loving Relationship is one in which individuals trust each other enough to become vulnerable, secure that the other person won’t take advantage. It is neither exploits nor takes the other for granted. It involves much communication, much sharing, and much tenderness.
  • A Loving Relationship is one, which one can be open and honest with one another without the fear of being judged. Its being secure in the knowledge that you are each others bestfriend no matter what happens you will stand by one another.
  • A Loving Relationship is one in which the individuals involved to grow in their understanding and loving acceptance of each others differences and encourages each others differences and encourages each person to reach out and share as much beauty and love as its possible to find.
  • A Loving Relationship is one in which you accept the other person at the moment as a whole and receive that the same acceptance.
  • A Loving Relationship is one in which the distinctions of personal rights, possessions, thoughts, emotions and even actions become blurred,, and it doesn’t matter, because we share as much as its humanly possible with the same ultimate goals.
  • A Loving Relationship is one in which there is an mutual caring about the growth and progress of each, where possessiveness gives away offering the other to be his/her person where selfishness gives away to selfless giving, sharing. And caring where the lines of communication are kept open, where the good in each is maximized and bad minimized.
  • A Loving Relationship is one of trust and acceptance, which creates a tender warm feeling of security and contentment. It offers unlimited support and strenght upon which one always can draw.

Christ Has No Hands But Our Hands

Christ has no hands but our hands. To do His work today. He has no feet but our feet. To lead men in His way. He has no tongue but our tongues. To tell men how He died. He has no help but our help. To lead men to His side. What if our hands are busy with other work than His? What if our feet are walking where sin's allurement is? What if our tongues are speaking of things his lips would spurn? How can we hope to help Him or hasten His return?


Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there… to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who thesepeople may be but you lock eyes withthem, you know that very moment thatthey will affect your life in someprofound way.

And sometimes things happen to you atthe time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never realize your potential, strength, will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck.Illness, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test limits of your soul.
Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create whom you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact they are probably the most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make everyday count. Appreciate everything that you possibly can, for you may never experience it again.

Talk to people whom you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold you head up because you have every right to.

Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create you own life and then go out and live it.

Share this with anyone whom you believe has made a difference in your life.

"If you take your eyes off your goal, all you see is obstacles."

Go out and Live your life.

The Tiny Frogs

Once upon a time there were several tiny frogs.... who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants....

The race began....

Truth : No one in the crowd really believed that th etiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.
You heard statements such as :

"Oh, WAY too difficult!!!"

"They will never make it to the top." or:
"Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"

The tiny frogs began giving up, one by one.... There were some, who, with fresh effort, kept climbing higher and higher...

The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up.... But ONE continued higher and higher and higher.... This one wouldn't give up!

At the end, everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Just one tiny frog, after a big effort, was the only one reached the top! THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?

A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal. It turned out.... That the winner was DEAF!!! He couldn't hear all the people telling him he couldn't succeed.

The wisdom of this story is :

Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic.... because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heat!

Always think of th epower words have. Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions!
