Probably one of the most recognized phrases in the church is the opening to this book: "I, Nephi, having been born of goodly parents..."
I want my children to be able to say that they were born of goodly parents. To me, that means that I need to be working to improve myself. Doing more to be a good mother, a good church member, and a good person overall.
A 2nd thing that struck me... Nephi talks about how he is making an account of the proceedings in his days. This reminds me of the importance of keeping journals for posterity. My blogs may be a non-traditional journaling method, but it works for me. I use them to make an account of the proceedings of my days!
