Abby’s Top-10 List

From “Taking Time to Talk and Listen,” Ensign, Apr. 2012, 13

When your path is focused on that most important goal of returning to Heavenly Father, you will get there!

“This is the plan of salvation unto all” (Moses 6:62).

Once while I was visiting a class of young women, the teacher asked the class to write their top-10 goals in life. Then she asked them to share what they had written. Abby, who had recently turned 12, was sitting next to me. This was Abby’s list:

  1. Go to college.

  2. Become an interior designer.

  3. Go on a mission to India.

  4. Get married in the temple to a returned missionary.

  5. Have five kids and a home.

  6. Send my kids on missions and to college.

  7. Become a “cookie-giving” grandma.

  8. Spoil the grandchildren.

  9. Learn more about the gospel and enjoy life.

  10. Return to live with Heavenly Father.

Abby had a vision of the plan Heavenly Father has for all of us. When your path is focused on that most important goal of returning to Heavenly Father, you will get there!
