Our host shares his experience when President Hinckley introduced the Perpetual Education Fund — During a mid-life crisis, our host determines to be financially independent — Self-reliance allows us to serve more — Some are too risk averse to own and operate their own business, and that’s OK — We learn from our failures — Often we approach prayer as a laundry list when we should partner with the Lord because He is interested in every aspect of our lives — The Lord should be our business partner in the business of life — The Church’s self-reliance classes begins with an introduction at a stake self-reliance fireside — Our host summarizes the different classes and how they work once they’re formed — Everyone helps each other because we’re on the same journey together
The Internet and various organizations provide helpful information for those wanting to start a business — The Church’s program provides the real support these other sources don’t — What LDS singles need most is someone to walk with them — Our culture gives us a life plan that creates expectations of progression — LDS singles life often frustrates those expectations with a different reality — Motion provides a sense of progression and hence fulfillment — LDS singles can get this from a personal ministry — Each of the four self-reliance classes is different in content but similar in structure — Action partners provide support — Our host prefers old school communication over texting — Flexibility allows us to overlook imperfections
Each class starts with sharing how people did keeping commitments over the previous week — Because everyone falls short, it helps everyone to feel we’re all on the same journey — Lessons start with foundational gospel principles — Our host doesn’t agree with all the content of the class (time management for one), but he tried it anyway because he’s willing to be wrong and admit it — Our host loves the model of prayer presented in the class — We can take our lives to the next level when we take our prayers to the next level — The Church’s self-reliance classes gold great benefit for LDS singles — Stake self-reliance specialists can provide help in joining the program
