First for the Adult sessionnight, I can't remember her name but the first speaker said something that i thought was very insightful. I can't remember the exact way that she put it but she said something about how the Savior doesn't only know us perfectly but he knows those whom we are trying to love, teach, befriend, tolerate, or whatever it may be. And if the Savior knows them perfectly as well then we should always turn to Him for guidance on how to better love others.
Another speaker, Sister Carlston, talked about youth a lot, but then she talked about missionary work and how we have to befriend people before we can truly share much of the gospel with them and once we have befriended someone we no longer need to tell them to go to churchbut we should invite them to join us in our church worship. the scriptures teach us that love will overcome or conquer fear, so if that is true then once we can come to love those around us then the fear of invitation can quickly become absent and we will be able to bring others closer to their Savior Jesus Christ! "Live your life so that those who don't know Him will want to know Him because they know you."
Sister Mendenhall's talk was centered around a story when she was younger when she and her cousin woke up too early easter morning and found that the easter bunny had not come yet. They ran to their parents room and told them about the devastating news. Her mom quickly woke up, threw off the covers and said "quick, go back to bed, He will come!" She then based her talk off of those three profound words, He will come. How often do we get depressed or confused in life and forget to remind ourselves that Christ will come? We are not alone, we are preparing the way for the Son of God to return to this earth and the adversary is working just as hard to ruin the work that we are so anxiously engaged in. This is not an easy task, how could it be? We must remind ourselves often that He will come! And we must become ready now to greet Him when He does come because no man or angel knows when that time will be.
Elder Rawson also came to stake conference and he gave a wonderful talk and gave us a very introspective question to ask ourselves often. It was, "Can i be trusted with revelation?" He talked about how we often try to figure out how to receive more revelation in our lives and how to find the answers we are searching for through revelation, but how often do we think about the position we are putting God in when we ask and seek for revelation in our lives? Can He trust us with the sacred knowledge we are asking for?
Okay i don't have too much more time but let me just put a couple quotes in here from the session.
"Nothing would be worth destroying the protection and Joy that comes from regular temple attendance."
"Whatever we have to do to become/stay worthy to attend the temple and serve a mission is worth it."
"He won't take away the burden or make it lighter, but He will strengthen us."
"We have no idea, we don't even grasp the blessings and power and strength that is available when we attend the Temple on a frequent and consistent basis."
"Just as we cannot catch up on meals after not eating for 6 days, we cannot wait tillto feed our spirits."
Well, that's about all i got folks! Thanks for reading! Bye!
Love you all!!!
