A Winner Chosen

Since nobody got 2 right and I still wanted to at least have one winner, I decided to pick one of the people who got one answer right. My favorite number is 16. So I chose the 16th person who got at least one answer right in the comments. That was "Angie." Here comment is quoted below. Angie, please email me via my email off my profile page and give me your address and I will send you your prize!

I am about 100% sure I will not get even 1 of these right...but here goes:

#15: Does anyone REALLY know EXACTLY how many dates they went on before they were married?
#17: Just because the thought of it freaks me out a little:)

I was torn between #36 and #10. For some reason I seem to think I remember you mentioning something about hating to do dishes...but I could be confusing you with someone else, so....

#10 it is: you don't seem the "love to shop" type, but more the "love to find a good deal" type (and those are two TOTALLY different things;)

I'm quite sure I bombed!

I'm bummed that it wasn't my number that got chosen, but I am happy that someone got chosen. Way to Go Angie. You have a much better comment than mine anyway!

Very diplomatic, Stephanie.

Congrats, Angie.

Might I suggest that if you do this again, maybe list 10 or 12 things with 2 lies -- keep it out of the quantum physics arena :-)

That was a fun way to get to know you better.

This is off topic.
How do you really KNOW if you've done your best? I am the kind of person for whom many, many things come easily, and I do them very well. Because this is natural to me, I sometimes wonder if I really ever WORK at anything? (Although I know I am exhausted by the end of a day with my family, house, errands, etc.) Am I really doing my best; would my offering be pleasing to my Heavenly Father; or do I just ride on my talents and I should be doing so much more?
How do you know if it's enough?

To the anonymous comment (above) about doing your best...We recently had a lesson on this in Relief Society and it is very hard to feel if you are truly doing your best or if you are just "riding on your talents."

I think it is a matter that should be discussed with Heavenly Father. He will let you know. Pray that He will give you the guidance you need to either strengthen your talents, or to help you feel that you are doing what He wants you to do.

It seems like a simple solution, but it's one that will not only strengthen you, but help you to feel closer to Heavenly Father and help you to feel His love and appreciation for what you do.

I agree 100% w/ Ashlyn. Several times I have felt overwhelmed with work, life, etc. and went to the Lord to see if what I was doing was fine with Him -- was my offering acceptable? The peace that came was unforgettable -- there is absolutely no better piece of mind that comes in life than knowing that the Lord is pleased with YOU. Not some prophet in the scriptures, not some theoretical "you're special" but that HE truly thinks that YOU are doing the best that you can do.
