Your Temple Isn’t Just Your Body

I was reminded yesterday that the focus to “tidy your temple” can’t be on just your body.  My relationships and habits need a lot of work too.  How do you know how to be a good spouse when you grew up with only one parent?  I try to be like the couples that were around us growing up, but your perception as a child is quite skewed sometimes.  It’s hard to know what you should and shouldn’t be doing when you had no example to follow.

God, give me patience and the ability to change myself for the better.  I am failing right now, but I don’t want to be in this position forever.  I want to be a good spouse, sister, daughter, and coworker.  I need to get my act together, and tidy my temple in every way.
