Lindon Central Stake Self-Reliance Groups
In September 2022, the Lindon Utah Central Stake will start four Self-Reliance courses. As your stake presidency, we invite you to prayerfully consider participating in one of these groups. Many participants report learning new skills and insights, understanding how to better work with the Lord in daily life, and making new and deep friendships.
"The Lord loves effort, because effort brings rewards that can't come without it," said President Russell M. Nelson, (April 2020 General Conference, An Especially Noble Calling)
Self-reliance courses are a great way to put in the effort necessary to receive the rewards the Lord has in store for you. Please share and invite others to attend a group with you as a wonderful way to help them feel your love and the love of their Savior.

Build Your Self-Reliance Plan
Individuals or families may use the Self-Reliance Plan form on their own or with the assistance of a mentor. The form helps assess needs, income, and expenses, identify available resources, identify service opportunities, and develop specific objectives to becoming more self-reliant.

Self-reliance is the “ability, commitment, and effort to provide the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family. As members become self-reliant, they are also better able to serve and care for others.” Join a group sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in your area.

Use Your Talents to Help A Neighbor
Sister Bonnie L.
