LDS General Conference - Sunday Words of Wisdom (Oct 2013)

If you missed yesterday's post,
you missed a bunch of motivating & inspiring quotes.
It was basically a recap of some of my favorite talks
from the Saturday morning & afternoon sessions of General Conference
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
You should definitely check it out!

Today I'll be sharing my favorite highlights from
the Sunday morning & afternoon sessions of conference.
Again, keep in mind these are my hurried notes & they are not all word for word...

Heavenly Father has perfect foresight.
He knows each of us, & He knows our future.
- President Henry B. Eyring

I gave him to you because I knew you could & would love him,
no matter what he did.

Unrepentant rebellion will bring punishment,
but when the Lord speaks of weaknesses, it is always with mercy.

Fill your life with service to others.

Shall I falter, or shall I finish?

Good timber does not grow with ease;
The stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.

Let us be at the forefront in protecting time for family.
Make any necessary sacrifices to protect our own family & the rising generation.

We are liberated by the love, grace, & atoning sacrifice of our Savior.
- Elder Quentin L. Cook

A teacher is also a student.

Rather than solve our problems Himself,
the Lord wants us to develop faith that will help us rely on Him in solving our problems & trust Him.

Our Savior wants us to really love Him to the point that we want to align our will with His.
- Elder Terence M. Vinson

You are never too young to learn, & never too old to change.

Are we not all children of God?
- Elder Russell M. Nelson

We should love God more than even our Earthly parents,
and we should love our neighbors as our brothers & sisters.
- Elder Russell M. Nelson

How you use your body affects your spirit.
How will you choose to care for & use your body?
What spiritual attributes will you choose to develop?

Like many great prophets of old,
you were chosen before you were born.

Freedom from self-slavery is true liberation.

Sin, even if legalized by man, is still sin in the eyes of God.
We cannot change His doctrine.
It is not ours to change.
- Elder Russell M. Nelson

Each day is a day of decision, & our decisions determine our destiny.
- Elder Russell M. Nelson

May your homes be filled with love and courtesy, & with the spirit of the Lord.

May heaven's blessing be with you.

So there you have it...
My favorite highlights from today's conference talks.

The Mormon religion seems to often be misunderstood & misinterpreted.
So if you have any questions,
feel free to ask me!
I promise I won't try to convert you.
I will, however, give you honest answers
so that you may better understand our religion.
