October 7, 2014 - Conference Highlights

Conference was so stinking good!

Did you guys hear the Portuguese talk by Carlos a Godoy?

Elder Rasband did all the translating; I don't know if you noticed or not!
I recognized his voice - it was really cool!!
Godoy is Brasilero
Rasband is the one who did the Fort Collins Temple dedication

That's how I talk now hahah. I have an accent - just kidding.

Did you like the Seventy´s talk on Saturday afternoon with the 5 points to be better!  He was just throwing everything on the table; it was so cool!
What steps can we take today to “walk with Him”?
  1. Feed the desire to be a better follower of Christ.
  2. Pray for this desire that your faith in Him may grow.
  3. Obtain knowledge from the scriptures, lighting the way and strengthening your desire to change.
  4. Make the decision today to act and say, “Yes, Lord, I will follow Thee!” Simply knowing the truth will not change your world unless you turn knowledge into action.
  5. Persevere in the decision you have made by exercising these principles daily.
If you haven't seen the misisonary medley that's on the from the priesthood session, you need to watch it.
