We have decided that for FHE for the next year, we are going to go over the conference talks, one each week and focus on it's message to us. We started with the talk "Living the Gospel Joyfully" by Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf. I encourage everyone to go read or listen to this talk. So much good in it!
Some of our insights were that the knowledge that we are children of God will carry us through the most difficult times in our lives and will inspire us to accomplish remarkable things.
Also, that God knows us and knows what is best for us!! He is focused on only one goal; to bring us back to Him. I love the quote, "He also anxiously wants you to choose what is best for you." He is ANXIOUSLY waiting for us to choose Him. We need to believe this!!
Our favorite quote though is "Heavenly Father is constantly raining blessings upon us. It is our fear, doubt, and sin that, like an umbrella, block these blessings from reaching us."
Close your umbrellas, people. Let God bless you.
Here is a few highlights of his talk:
