Elder Quentin L. Cook:

Spiritual Bondage and subjection

Ideological or political beliefs inconsistent with Church doctrine are a form of bondage.

Elder Neil Anderson

Ordinances invite us to increased faith.

Talk mostly about the priesthood order. (sorry, I am a bit slow to note taking here)

“Whatever your situation, your home will be bless by priesthood power.”

Elder David M. McConkie

Speaking to the teachers of the Church.

“You must not teach your own opinions or ideas.”

Personal spiritual preparation is the key.

An emphasis on teaching students, rather than just repeating well worn stories.

Elder Kevin Scott Hamilton:

Attending our Sunday meetings as a version of holding to the rod.

Elder Adrián Ochoa

Don’t forget to look up. Watch for the signs of the times.

Elder Terence M. Vinson:

Members of the Church are entitled to a spiritual witness.

We do not need to rely on our own strength.

Christ is always near.

Elder Russell M. Nelson:

Revere human life, in each of its many stages.

President Monson:

Wrapping up Conference with a hearty farewell.

  1. Looks like Elder Christofferson was excited to hear what Elder Andersen is going to speak on. Cameras caught him peeking over at Elder Andersen’s notes.

  2. This story about lawyers is not wholly uncommon. Major reason why I decided practicing law was not for me.

  3. “Man does not own the blinds, or the window, or the warmth”. Elder Andersen referring to the Priesthood.

  4. Giving priesthood blessings or officiating in priesthood ordinances unworthily is taking the name of God in vain. I have never heard it described that way before.

  5. I have mixed feelings about the effect of looking at anti material. For some people it can be good because it prompts them to investigate and solidify their testimony. For others, it can destroy their testimony.

  6. This General Conference seems to have really been focused on providing counsel and comfort for those who are struggling.
