If This Was All It Took To Make You Happy


Ethan has begun memorizing the articles of faith and to motivate him further I have decided to do a reward chart for him. He figured out most of the rewards. The things on this list represent the most sincere desires of Ethan's heart. As I glanced over the completed list, I wished that this was all it took to make me happy. Pop tarts, going to the car wash, eating at McDonalds... maybe I should take a lesson from the simplicity of Ethan.

I LOVE this! Christian and I just sat down and made a similar list. Hopefully, we can actually do it now.

I think I like most of these rewards, I might try motivating myself with some. BTW I love the picture of Ethan jumping in the pool!! Priceless!

I love it. I really should try something like this with myself. Pick some goals, write out rewards.
