Thank you guys for putting up with my General Conference notes once again.  I love you guys so much!~

Come, Let Us Anew - Hymn

((I couldn’t find a good Mo-Tab version on youtube, so have the hymn from the church website))

Thomas S. Monson

Let us resolve to do better than we have in the past. Let us be kind to others who do not share our beliefs.  Always follow the example of Christ.

Fill our homes with love and courtesy. Always nourish our testimonies. 

D. Todd Christofferson

We can have ultimate trust and confidence in Jesus Christ and his atonement.  ”Christ’s victory over death ended the human predicament. Now there are only personal predicaments.”

He is a perfect, merciful God.  No infirmary, even death, is permanent in him.  We are all accountable to him for our actions and choices.  

Faith is truly more than imagination or psychological invention.  

Death is not our end. We continue on beyond this life, into the presence of God.

Marcos A. Aidukaitis

Satan distorts the internet to promote doubt and fear and destroy hope.  He made it into a time waster pretty much. (Yup.)

118 And as all have not afaith, seek ye diligently and bteach one another words of cwisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best dbookswords of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. — D&C: 88:118

By their fruits ye shall know them.

D&C 8 talks about receiving revelation. Without faith, you can do nothing, so ask in faith. Faith without works is dead, so you must act on your faith.  

 10 And therefore, he that will aharden his heart, the same receiveth the blesser portion of the word; and he that will cnotharden his heart, to him is dgiven the greater portion of the word, until it is given unto him to know the mysteries of God until he know them in full. —Almoa 12:10

John 1:5 - If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.

Michael John U. Teh

We must learn to recognize when we have enough. We must not chase after the temporal and become too engrossed in things of the world.  

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where amothand rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal;

 20 But lay up for yourselves atreasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. —3: Nephi 13:19-20

Why do we devote so much of our time and energy to temporal things that really are worthless?  We must let go of pride, wealth, temporal things, etc. We must worry about ourselves and lay up treasures for ourselves in heaven. 

Put more quality time into strengthening family relationships.  It is the most important unit.  Serve others; it is a true hallmark of following Christ.  We must strive to understand the doctrine and gospel and the words of Christ and Living Prophets. 

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Lawrence E. Corbridge

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God." —James 1:5

There will always be a force to oppose good.  The more the good, the more the opposition.  The truth will always be opposed.  

We are all children of God and can be like him if we only follow him.  

The Organization of our church is the same as in the Bible.  It is fundamentally the same church that Jesus Christ organized. God spoke to people back then, and he still speaks to us today. 

We prepared with god before we came here, and we will be with him eternally afterwords. Marriage is not until death do us part, but for eternity.  

Ask these things of God to know for yourself.  It is the only way for you to know for sure.

L. Tom Perry

Being surrounded by family is a tremendous blessing.  

How can we always tell if we’re doing the right thing? we must be obedient unto the commandments and the promptings of the Holy Ghost.  ALWAYS Be ready to receive the gentle tug of the spirit. 

James 3:3 

 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and aredriven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the agovernor listeth.

 Even so the tongue is a little member, and aboasteth great things. Behold, how great a bmatter a little fire kindleth!

Articles of Faith 1:3

Have faith in Jesus Christ. Faith is things hoped for and not seen.  

Today’s complexity demands more simplicity.  Obedience is not passive.  It is active and unwavering.  Our faithfulness through obedience will ultimately rescue us.  Obedience is a choice between our own limited knowledge and power and God’s unlimited knowledge and power.  

William R. Walker

Knowing of our heritage, our righteous forefathers, the more we know our responsibility to them. We know we must live up to their righteousness, and the easier it is to make good decisions.  

We must live “True to the faith that our parents have cherished.”

Boyd K. Packer

Personal revelation only comes through study and personal prayer. We learn precept upon precept. Knowledge is gained through obedience. 

The holy ghost’s job is to testify, bring peace & assurance, & comfort.  

Pray in the name of Jesus Christ, because there is no other name by which we can be saved. 

We must each gain our OWN personal testimony of Jesus Christ, and then share it with our family. Beware the adversary. 

Did anyone watch LDS General Conference with me? Did you like it? Did you learn anything from it?
