So General Conference just ended, and I wanted to put down a few things that I really liked.
I really liked President Uchdorf’s talk in the Priesthood session, where he talked about the importance of work–not just wanting to do good things, but actually taking the time to do them. He also emphsized the importance of Education–always learning, whether in or out of a school.
That was my favorite talk, but I also really liked Elder Holland’s talk on the truth of the Book of Mormon, and Elder Bednar’s talk on consistent effort. I can’t remember who said it, but in another talk the speaker talked about those who don’t make an effort to teach their children the gospel, using the reason that they will “let their children decide for themselves”. His point was that the children cannot decide for themselves without having a knowledge of the gospel, and that Satan will certainly not protray the temptations of the world in a fair, unbiased light.
I’m hoping that I can spend more time studying the gospel, and also doing some of the good side projects that I want to do but never seem to find the time to do.
