    The LDS General Conference talk by Thomas S. Monson that you absolutely must read!

    1.10.2018

    "The Way of the Master" 
    by Thomas S. Monson

     April 1996 - LDS General Conference
    Topic: Life after Death

    This talk is included very first in my list of 8 LDS Talks that Changed My Life and there's a good reason.  Itmade such a distinct impression on me in my youth that I remember the exact place I was sitting and how I felt when I saw it in real life (I would have been 18 years old).  The beginning of the talk is lovely, expressing teachings of Jesus Christ and how we can implement those things in our lives.  But the Life-changing part of this talk comes a little later when President Monson relays a story titled "Information Please" (beginning at 13:30 of this clip).

    This story is profoundly touching and shares with us the message that death is not the end of life. While on my mission an Elder I knew lost a loved one.  In that moment this wonderful talk entered my mind and I shared it with him, later finding the actual talk in an Ensign and copying it for him to read.  His pain was slightly lighter because of the words of this beautiful talk and the testimony that our lives are eternal.


    Favorite Quote: "Always remember that there are other worlds in which to sing."

    FREE PRINTABLE // How Is a New LDS Latter-day Prophet & Church President Called?

    1.05.2018

    With the recent passing of President Thomas S. Monson I know many families will want an easy way to explain to their kids and teens how a new Prophet and President of the church is chosen. I made this printable chart to show the process and included a great quote from Spencer W. Kimball about the succession of the church Presidency. 

    "It is reassuring to know that [a new President is]. . .not elected through committees and conventions with all their conflicts, criticisms, and by the vote of men, but [is] called of God and then sustained by the people. The pattern divine allows for no errors, no conflicts, no ambitions, no ulterior motives. The Lord has reserved for himself the calling of his leaders over his church.” --Spencer W. Kimball

    I will post a brand new Family Home Evening lesson this Sunday all about the new Prophet, his life, and his teachings!
