Keep the Fire Burning in Truth

We just concluded the 183rd semiannual conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members from around the world--or anyone who is interested--was able to watch or listen via satellite, television, radio, internet and soon, the written word.

I love these weekends for the inspiration, the spirit, the instruction, and the time to realign my priorities and goals. To help me remember, I tried to compile quotes from the talks and decided I'd share! In no particular order...

"We sometimes have a tendency to be very critical of ourselves. During these times we need to seek the spirit and ask. "Is this what the Lord wants me to think about myself? Or is Satan trying to beat me down?"" - Linda S. Reeves

"When the quiet promptings of the Holy Ghost come, you must have the courage to set aside your outlines and your notes and go where those promptings take you. When you do this the lesson you deliver is no longer your lesson, but becomes the Savior's lesson." Elder David M. McConkie

"Man's laws cannot make moral what God's laws have declared immoral." -Dallin H. Oaks
