Episode 086: How to make the right big & important decisions

Is it just us, or has life thrown you a whole bunch of curveballs? Do you have a lot of crossroads coming up in your life? Does it sometimes feel like the whole world is falling apart and that darkness, destruction, and division are stronger than ever?

Today, we’re going to talk about the BIGGEST decisions we’ve made in our marriage. We’re sharing our exact process for making important decisions in our life, and how we make sure we’re making the RIGHT decisions every single time.

We also share one big fail that taught us an expensive but essential lesson that would guide us through every other major decision for the rest of our lives. And we leave you with a message of HOPE that will hopefully help you as you meet up with all the big crossroads in your life.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How we make big decisions in life: Trust in God as an important element
  • Studying it in your mind and doing your research
  • Taking your time, especially with big decisions
  • Our marriage decision
  • Lessons learned from a bad decision

Scriptures that have guided us through our process of making decisions:

Doctrine & Covenants 9:8

“Behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right.”

Hebrews 10: 35-36

“Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.”

2 Kings 6: 15-17

“…Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”
