November Presidency Message

We have had SO MANY great events to listen to the Lord's voice to each of us personally lately. 

FIRST, we had a WONDERFUL Women's Conference.  The messages reminded us to make and keep our covenants with the Lord to truly bless our lives for now and for etermity.

THEN, we had a FANTASTIC General Conference.  Messages were very diverse, ranging from having faith and believing, looking for the great blessings the Lord pours out upon us, missionary work, being personally converted, to much much more.  To read (or listen to) all messages before your Ensign comes out go to the site.  (Just click there to go directly to the conference talks!)

FINALLY, we had the priviladge of hearing from your local authorities at Stake Conference.  We are truly blessed to be guided by our Savior Jesus Christ daily and have divine guidance from inspired leaders at a local and world level.  President Robert D. Hales of the quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, "In conferences we can receive the word of the Lord meant just for us" (October, 2013).  We could recount what was said, but he went on to say, "What is said is not as important as what we hear and what we feel." 

We would therefore encourage everyone to re-read conference, listen to it on the internet, or watch it on BYU-TV and find the messages our modern leaders have for YOU personally.  In the Doctrine and Covenants 1:38 it says, "What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself...whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same." 

We testify that the Lord does speak to us today.  He speaks to each of us individually and as a church collectively though our modern leaders.  We add our testimony and admonition to President Hales when he said, " I promise you in His name that if you pray with a sincere desire to hear your Heavenly Father’s voice in the messages of this conference, you will discover that He has spoken to you to help you, to strengthen you, and to lead you home into His presence."

Thank you for your service to our Father's children.  May He bless your families and efforts.
