Spring LDS General Conference 2017


A few thoughts and quotes from "General Conference":

Elder Erying- gathering all things in one both in heaven and earth = family history

Covenants paramount, obedience exact

Elder Renland- Christ ate with sinners, offers hope.  Will save from sin but not in sin.

Perfect brightness of hope = watching a taped football game already knowing the outcome. In life, we already know the outcome so we don't need to get stressed about a bad penalty call, etc.

Preserve gospel language at home.  Keep language pure, don't mix with outside influences.  The gospel is our true native language.

Pres. Monson- charitable = being kind, be kind. We do not honor priesthood if we are not kind.  Study Book of Mormon daily.

Elder Bednar-  Mission Call = Called to serve,  assigned to labor in a place. Not called to a place but to "the work".  Focus your young men on Priesthood, Temple, and Mission.

Pres. Uchtdorf- chiefest of all is servant of all. People will tell you your great, dont inhale it.

Elder Rasband- respond to first promptings.  Be a first responder.

Pres. Utchdorf- don't dwell on the evils of the world.  Fear not and be of good cheer.  Serve God and our fellow man.

Elder Christiansen-  warning voice is civil and joyful.  Successful must preach what you practice.  Stop feigning neutrality. 

Elder Cook-  Malcolm Gladwell says 10,000 hours of "deliberate practice" are needed to become world-class in any [skilled] field. This applies to gospel learning. Financial success does not = blessed.  Expected to endure adversity well.
