What did I get from Listening to the Prophet and Apostles?

General Conference was what I needed for my Spiritual nourishment.  I received an answer to my prayers and fulfilled a thought that i had been working on for quite a while.

  • Elder Richard G. Scott  talked about the tools to overcome our problems, these are the scriptures.   'They have potent power to heal emotional challenges when there is faith in the Savior. They can accelerate physical healing. Scriptures are like packets of light that illuminate our minds and give place to guidance and inspiration from on high.' Those who consistently read the Book of Mormon will have an added measure of the Spirit and a stronger testimony of Jesus Christ. 

  • Sister Barbra Thompson gave us great insights on how we can receive revelation for ourselves. First we need to Desire it, Ask in Faith (believing that ye shall receive) and keep the commandments of God. We must nourish our Testimonies so our Testimonies can keep us She shared a story about a woman who in the time of WWII shared her food with others and they asked how she was able to keep a Testimony in those trying times and she said her Testimony kept her.

  •      Elder Henry B. Eyring encouraged us to  Form a habit of pushing on through the fatigue and fear that might make you think of quitting.  'The Lord’s great mentors have shown me that spiritual staying power comes from working past the point when others would have taken a rest.'

  1. Elder Miner those were my favorite talks from General Conference! Lean upon the scriptures for guidance in your life. Keep your testimony close to you and nourish it as much as you can and NEVER give up or quit Elder Miner. Keep pushing and enduring to the end like you have always said to me.
