I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on earning my second LDS Personal Progress medallion (did you know moms can earn them with their daughters? It’s been such a joy to work on it along with my 13 year old daughter). One of the projects is to prepare for and receive your patriarchal blessing (Individual Worth #2). I received mine as a teenager and have gained such strength and comfort from reading and studying it over the years.
I created this free little study journal to help you record your insights and inspiration about your patriarchal blessing. It’s six pages long and features the following pages:
- Memories from the day I received my patriarchal blessing
- Promises and Blessings mentioned in my patriarchal Blessing
- Warnings and Admonitions
- What I Learned About Myself
- Instruction/Goals to Achieve
- The above titles combined on a single page
I studied my patriarchal blessing using the study guide this week and I found it absolutely fascinating to break it down into different categories. To see all my blessings listed together as well as all the counsel/instruction all together helped me to see what I should be focusing my time and prayers on. Also, I was interested to learn that there is really only one warning in my patriarchal blessing, but it’s a big one and it’s definitely something I struggle with.
Studying this revelation in such a personal way was enlightening to me. I’d love to hear about your experiences studying your own patriarchal blessing.
