This is the wrap up of the conference. A reminder to study the talks the next six months and let the words serve as a guide. Of course, in President Nelson’s format, this has also become the ‘new temple’ announcement. That moment everyone holds their breath to hear a temple in their special corner of the world. It happened for us Wyomingites in 2011. Not to be greedy, but it would be nice if it happened again. I mean, Wyoming is a big state so our Wyoming temple isn’t exactly close to most of the state or easily accessed during winter. So, if it’s not asking to much, perhaps one a little easier to travel to?
But I digress.
This is the final address of the conference. For many, this might be the last time they see or hear from the prophet directly for six months. Although, for this little blog’s reader, it may seem shorter, like, maybe next week? (wink, wink)
It may be a short talk compared to the rest of the conference but listen and feel the warmth and love from a faithful Prophet of God.

Let’s be wise and listen. Continue reading

Picture Moses. You’re thinking he looks a lot of Charlton Heston, aren’t you? You’re probably picturing him either parting the Red Sea or receiving the Ten Commandments. Those are great images of him.
But I want you to picture him on a hill, watching a battle between Amalek and Israel with his arms outstretched. When he lowered his arms, Amalek began overpowering Israel. As long as he kept his arms stretched out, Israel prevailed.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to listen to a true prophet of God speak. Such a wonderful message that I want to share.

Imagine hearing what a prophet of God had to say less than a month after the most horrific attack within America’s border in recent history. Was it the end of the world? Were we entering WWIII?
Actually, you don’t have to imagine what a prophet of God would say during such circumstances. You can watch this clip from October 2011. Next Sunday I will post his actual talk (this is just the opening of conference).
