Entreprenuer Journal Entry #9

I’m excited to complete the entrepreneur interview paper next week. I’ve already meet with an entrepreneur and I’ve started to write the paper.

I learned a lot from this interview and have some good advice on what it takes to start a business. I’m glad I had that opportunity to meet with someone about starting a business.

It was a wonderful assignment because I love learning from other people. I love listening to their stories and learning how they view the world and listening to what they have to say.

Entrepreneur Journal Entry #9

This week one of the readings was “A Disciple Preparation Center” given by Elder David A. Bednar. I love the idea present by Elder Bednar in “Brigham Young University-Idaho: A Disciple Preparation Center (DPC)” that BYU Idaho is like an MTC.

It is true. They both are by a temple, they both have set standards, they both have a focus, and students are there for a short period of time. After I read how they were similar, this made me think I can make my own life and home a Disciple Preparation Center (DPC).

I can do this by making it a place of learning.  I can collect good books, scriptures, and other resources, and use them to gain an education.  Right now I live near a temple, but this may not always be the case.

  While in the future I may not live near the temple, but I can make my home and household worthy of the temple.  I can keep my covenants and stay worthy to enter the temple.  I can make my house a spiritual refuge, a place where the Spirit can reside, and a place where the Lord’s teachings are taught.

Elder Bednar also said a DPC is surrounded by strong stakes of Zion.  He then defines a stake as “places of refuge and protection.”   The wards around my home are these stakes; they are places of refuge and protection.

My homes can also me a place of this description.  It can be a place where the worldly influences do not apply.  It can be a place where the Saviour’s love flows and his teachings abound.  My home can be a DPC.
