words to live by

I came across this quote while preparing for my YW's lesson last week. Our lesson was all about having good thoughts. We talked about the things that can help us to have positive thoughts all the time. This quote has become my new mantra ...definitely good words to live by. I used some more of my scrapbook stash(scraps) & even used one of my old clock stamps on the handouts. I found candy watches to attach to each handout for the girls.

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.

Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.

Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

The YW leaders in our Ward just used that quote last night for our Spiritual Crocodiles Standards Night! It's definitely something we all need to keep in mind.
