Creating Your Life’s Work: Discovering your (and your children’s) potential for genius and greatness through creating and living the work of your dreams
In D&C 93:36 we are taught, “The glory of God is intelligence…” We are also taught that we were ‘intelligences’ and spirit children of our Heavenly Father. What can we learn about this word ‘intelligence’? Also, how important is it for us to be creative? What did Joseph Smith have to say about the Creation and how can we apply its powerful meaning to our own life, our work and our creative process? Putting these two words together as ‘creative intelligence’ can introduce us to a unique perspective on our own personal potential and how we can achieve it – helping us in becoming all that the Lord intends for us. Most importantly, the more creative and more intelligent we are, the more effective we’ll be in serving others and becoming ‘a light that cannot be hid’. Through examples drawn from the gospel, education, business and life we’ll uncover key elements required to go from a harried day-to-day ‘work life’ to building your own, important ‘life’s work’. And we’ll do it in a way that can easily be taught to your children – as you share in the process of working together as a family to reach your exponential potentials!
