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.
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.
