Saturday Morning Session


Conducting: President Dieter F. Uchtdorf - 2nd Counselor, First Presidency Opening Hymn: Praise the Lord With Heart and Voice Invocation: John B. Dickson - Quorum of the Seventy Talk: President Thomas S. Monson - President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints As We Gather Once Again Meet to strengthen one another, to comfort, to build faith, to learn. Some are seeking answers to prayers. Should there be changes that need to be made in your life, may you have the courage to make them. Our presence is now felt throughout the world. No cause, no force in the entire world can stop the cause of God. No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing. Persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame. But the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, until the purposes of God shall be accomplished and the Great Jehovah will say, The work is done.' - Joseph Smith (History of the Church, 4:540)

Choir: You Can Make the Pathway Bright Talk: President Boyd K. Packer - President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles And a Little Child Shall Lead Them The creation of life is a great responsibility of married couples. A challenge to be worthy and responsible. Neither man nor woman can bear children alone. The ultimate end of all activity in the church is to see a husband and his wife and their children happy at home, protected by the principals and laws of the gospel, sealed safely in the covenants of the everlasting priesthood.

Before I hear the words Well done from my Heavenly Father, I hope to hear them from my mortal father. No pain can last forever... repentance and the lasting hope that forgiveness brings will always be worth the effort. Next time you cradle a child in your arms you can have a vision of the basic purpose of life. Family time is sacred time and should be protected and respected. Now in the sunset of our lives, Sister Packer and I understand and have a willingness and a witness that our families can be forever. The plan of redemption, which has been called the plan of happiness, is a plan for families. Fathers and Mothers, the next time you cradle a newborn child in your arms you can have an inner vision of the mysteries and purposes of life. You will better understand why the church is as it is and why the family is the basic organization in time and all eternity.

Talk: Sister Cheryl A. Esplin - 2nd Counselor in the General Primary Presidency Teaching Our Children to Understand Our children are an heritage from the Lord. Raising our children is more than what we can do alone. We need Heavenly Fathers help. Divine privilege of raising children too great without Lord's help. He gives mothers and fathers specific instructions and guidance through the scriptures, His prophets and The Holy Ghost. His instructions are to teach our children to understand the doctrine, which is more than simply teaching what the doctrine is. The Lord instructs parents to teach their children: repentance, faith, ...... Sometimes the most powerful way to teach our children the Gospel is to teach in the moment. Learning happens in an environment filled with warmth and love. Every morning without fail my mother and father gathered us around the kitchen table before breakfast and we knelt in family prayer. We prayed at every meal. We can see our children understand the Gospel when it is revealed through their actions without threat or reward In the eyes of every infant we are reminded of the words of I am a child of God

Talk: Elder Donald L. Hallstrom - Presidency of the Seventy Converted to His Gospel through His Church Sometimes we use the terms Gospel and Church interchangeably but they are not the same, yet we need both in our lives. Gospel is eternal life, greatest of God's gifts. Do not remember what [he] said, but remember vividly how it felt. Pres David O. McKay looked Regal in cream suit, and a crown of white hair. This Church is respected by all those who truly seek to understand it. Nothing like this Church exists in all the world. Nothing ever will! Some have come to think that activity in the Church as the ultimate goal. While it is a highly desirable goal, it is insufficient. By contrast, the things of the Gospel are generally less tangible and measurable, but far more valuable.

It is possible to be active in the church, and less active in the gospel. Many of us are not receiving the power of the sacrament because we don't give it reverence. Three fundamental ways to have the gospel be our foundation: 1 - Deepen our understanding of Deity. 2 - Focus on the Ordinances and Covenants. 3 - Unite the gospel with the Church. We need to focus more on the Gospel rather than the Church. We need to recognize the intent of the Church is to increase focus on the Gospel, and all the activities and aspects of the Church should lead you to that point. Dont lose sight of the purpose of the Church in myopic focus on the activities themselves. When our hearts are truly aligned and in the right place, it is then that we will realize that there is no such thing as a boring sacrament meeting. Lord wants members to be fully converted to his Gospel Many of us are not being changed by the gospel, even though we are "doing everything right." That's not enough.

Hymn 85: How Firm a Foundation (Choir and Congregation) Talk: Elder Paul E. Koelliker of the Seventy He Truly Loves Us Love being with the missionaries, who are full of faith, hope and charity. They arrive as spiritual infants with a serious appetite to learn and they leave as mature adults ready to conquer any challenges before them. A mission is like a mini life, packaged into 24 or 18 months. Awakening the desire to know enables our spiritual capacities to hear the voice of heaven. Patterns are templates, guides, repeating steps or a path one follows to stay aligned with God's purpose. People murmur against the Lord because they don't understand His ways

Talk: Elder Dallin H. Oaks - Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Sacrifice The atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ has been called the most transcendent of all events from creations dawn to the endless ages of eternity. That sacrifice offered the ultimate good, the pure Lamb without blemish, for the ultimate measure of evil, the sins of the entire world. The sacrifice we should now offer is a broken heart and a contrite spirit and to love and serve one another. All sacrifice points to the sacrifice of the Son of God For most followers of Christ, we focus on sacrifice in ordinary lives. Mormon Pioneers are exemplary of this. Some have devoted entire adult lives to serve God. Includes missionaries and clergy of other churches. Christians killed by other christians are the most tragic markers of the christian faith.

Most visible strength of the Church is unselfish service of our members. The true symbol of our Christian faith are the lives of our people. -Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley There is no other voluntary sacrifice like missionary service anywhere else in the world. Full-time missionaries: 50,000 young men and women, 5,000 adults. How do we get so many to serve? We just ask them. For many converts, they must sacrifice their own families in order to embrace the gospel. A recent study has shown that LDS volunteer more time and effort than most Americans - fruits of Gospel Lectures on Faith: A religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things, never has power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation Who sacrifice for our Savior adhere to their eternal values more than any others. As you sacrifice for each other and your children, the Lord will bless you

Hymn: Love is Spoken Here Talk: President Henry B. Eyring - 1st Counselor, First Presidency Mountains to Climb Bring on adversity My prayer for a challenge was answered!! There are great challenges ahead of us, great opportunities to be met Why do bad things happen to good people? (D&C 122 is the answer) Pres. Eyrings experience served as a tutorial that great blessings come from adversity "All these things shall give thee experience." Whether the experience is for our benefit or detriment results from our decisions and attitude. All trials for our experience and good. We are never forsaken by our Lord and Redeemer, even Christ Fear not what man can do, for God will be with you forever and ever Pres Monson has taught us that the Lord is with us, to help us to serve. The way is to believe God will not forsake us. Foundation of faith takes time to build, must be embedded in our hearts My purpose today is to help us to know how we can lay that unshakable foundation & faith If the foundation of faith is not embedded in our hearts, our power to endure will crumble. The ground must be prepared for our foundation of faith for the storms that will inevitably come That solid basis for a foundation of faith is personal integrity, and creates the necessary strong foundation of our faith. Acting on a twig of faith allows God to grow it. Serving God and others + time turns testimony of truth into unbreakable spiritual strength Those with great trials in life aren't paying for their sins. They just need a little more polishing. We can feel the love of God; the Savior has promised angels on our right and our left --and he always keeps his word!

Hymn: Redeemer of Israel Benediction: Wilford W. Andersen - Quorum of the Seventy
