What up people!
|Watching General Conference|
Hope that your week was incredible!! Mine sure was with the Conference. This Conference was one of the best I have ever had the experience to witness in my entire 19 years of life. I hope that you took advantage and are taking advantage of the teachings that literally came from servants of God. Or, more specifically, God himself.
I am going to share a few things that I wrote down this last weekend.
FIRST, RIGHT OFF THE BAT -
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland - Remember, apply the things you learned. If we don’t apply what we learned in the Conference then it serves for nothing and we are ignoring the tools and protection that God is giving us to fight against Satan these next 6 months.
President Henry B. Eyring - The promise of words being given in the moment applies especially to Testimonies. [The Spirit will guide you in what you say when you share your testimony.]
Sister Mary R. Durham - The best way to learn how to use the Spirit and rely on it more is to immerse yourself in it.
Brother Donald L. Hallstrom - YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.... KNOW IT.... - The Lord lets you suffer because he knows that it will bless you.
Brother Kevin R. Duncan - The Atonement is the ointment that softens the heart and gives peace.
Brother Stephen E. Snow - Blessed are they who humble themselves without being compelled to be humble.
Elder Dale G. Renlund - If life were fair, we would not be resurrected. Thank heavens that life isn’t fair.

Elder Neil L. Andersen - Remember who you are – A Child of God.
Elder David A. Bednar - The sacrament is the invitation to repent sincerely. Strive to be born again all the time. We can’t be perfect right now, but we can become increasingly worthy.
Elder Russell M. Nelson - Only a man who has paid the price for Priesthood Power will have it. And an eternal family.... The same applies in ALL things.
Brother Stephen W. Owen - Sometimes you are called to lead, sometimes to follow. But you are always a leader. When you are not perfect at something but you still try, you are being a leader.
Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf - Astonish your spouse. “Seek and you shall find” is the promise, and you can use it for good or bad. Pride has no place in the Kingdom of Heaven.
President Henry B. Eyring - Everything that we do should have focus on Celestial Marriage. The most important work as Priesthood Fathers is within the walls of our own homes.
President Thomas S. Monson - Remember who you are and who God expects you to be. Are you standing in Holy places?
I didn’t get to see all of conference, YET. I will be downloading the talks and listening to them many, many times and reading them over and over, to understand better and apply it differently every time. I invite you all to do the same.
I love you all! Have the best week ever!
PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD!!! :)
