Sunday Afternoon Session Live Blogging

Elder Richard G. Scott

  • Play with our children, ENJOY it
  • "If you want to have a wonderful wife, you need her to see you as a wonderful man and prospective husband"
  • Never have a conversation you wouldn't want your spouse to overhear
  • Kind and supportive to children?
  • Men, do you lead family in prayer and scripture, or does wife fill in your gaps?
  • Men, do you tell your wife you love her?  You  need to tell her- she will be blessed for your assurance and gratitude.
  • Pure love is incomparable, potent power for good.  Righteous love is necessary for a successful marriage.
  • Mothers have instincts to know special needs of children.
  • Need to go back and read this one...with a highlighter!
  • He truly and deeply loves his late wife, Jenine.  So sweet to hear.
  • "I am confident that when we are reunited, we will be even more in love because of this time we have spent separated by the veil."  
Elder Todd D. Christoferson
  • Heavenly Father has high expectations of us, to make our transformation possible into something better
  • Gospel requirements are not a list of deposits to be made, it's a way to become what God desires us to become.
  • Willingly accept and seek correction.
  • Who the Lord loveth, He chasteneth.  Difficult to endure, shows He loves us.
  • Chastening: Persuade to repent, refine and sanctify, redirect course
  • We must listen to those in authority to chasten us, or they will stop trying.  
  • It occurs to me that I must be as excellent as I can, no matter my surroundings.  
Carl B. Pratt
  • When we keep commandments we are blessed
  • Tithing- be honest and pay our debts to the Lord.  All He asks is 10%
  • Pay it first and quickly.
  • Tithing is about faith, not money
Lynn G. Robbins
  • To become like Christ, we must do what Christ did
  • Teach children to be like Christ
  • Don't correct symptoms (fighting) correct attributes (patience and love)
  • Persuasion, long-suffering, kindness, knowledge
  • Don't label children- separate acts from identity
  • Need to read this one again
Benjamin deHoyos
  • Christ suffered according to the flesh, so He could know how to succor his people according to the flesh.
  • No matter the challenges that surround us, doctrines of atonement will give us peace and strength
  • Know that it is the Lord who has sustained us
C. Scott Grow (I adore his name :)
  • Told the story of his brother- made mistakes as a young man, lost church membership, health, and marriage.  After a decade came home, repented, re-gained church membership.  Re-married.  Died recently.
  • Grateful for repentance and atonement.
  • Christ atoned for sins, pains, sorrows.  Heals the sinner and the innocent.
  • There is no sin, transgression, pain, sorrow atonement can't heal (except sons of perdition)
  • Satan tells us we are lost.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
  • Reflect on messages of conference, and what conference is,
  • We testify that God lives and that He speaks.  Counsel we've heard is under direction of the Holy Spirit and will and voice of the Lord.
  • No speakers have been assigned a topic.  
  • Preach repentance, good tidings, and bind up the broken hearted.  Proclaim liberty to the captives, unsearchable riches of Christ.
  • "Apparently the gospel is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."  :)
President Thomas S. Monson
  • Read and study messages when we receive the Ensign magazine
  • Be good citizens and neighbors
  • examples of honesty and integrity
  • Bore his testimony of Christ
