by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Here is another one of my favorite talks from the last General Conference. I appreciate how President Uchtdorf makes things so clear for me.
One of our wards at our recent Young Woman Camp focused on how we are all both in need of rescue but also rescuers. This is what I thought of as I listened to their wise Bishop counsel the Young Women in his charge.
It also reminded me of where my focus needs to be. There are three things to keep my eye on that I call the tripod of faith and if I strengthen those three things everything else will fall into place. 1) the nature of the Godhead and my relationship with each one (I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father who loves me and I love Him); 2) the effectiveness of the Atonement (For God so loved me that He gave His Only Begotten Son); 3) the reality of the Restoration (I will be an active participant in the Restoration of the Gospel!). These three things give me a balanced testimony (see Dallin H. Oaks, Testimony, April 2008).
This talk reminds me of the importance of number 2 and my role in the Atonement when helping others come unto Christ.
