3 Things to Know from General Conference

A quick dive into “Simply Beautiful - Beautifully Simple” by Elder Gary E Stevenson from the October 2021 General Conference.

Three Things to Know from Elder Gary E Stevenson's October 2021 General Conference Talk.

1. Something cool from Elder Stevenson

3 Things to Know from Oct 2021 General Conference

I LOVED the story that Elder Stevenson shared about a man named Jens in Denmark.  Jens was enjoying a beautiful summer evening when he got the impression to change a burnt-out lightulb.  Despite his wife calling to him to come for dinner he immediately left to get a new lighbulb.  On his bike ride he saw a two year old boy fall into a pond and was able to save him because he was in the right place at the right time.  No one else was around, and if Jens had not followed the strong prompting to change the lightbulb that young boy would likely have died.  That small prompting and the small decision to follow it changed the little boy’s family’s life forever!

2. Something you might have missed

Elder Stevenson emphasize the simplicity of our gospel responsibilities.  He narrowed it down to 4 things: 


  1. Living the gospel
  2. Caring for those in need
  3. Inviting all to receive the gospel
  4. Uniting families for eternity

I hope it’s not wrong of me, but I think it can be simplified even more: do good, and be good on Christ’s covenant path.  That’s really all we have to do!

3. Something you need to know from Elder Stevenson

Elder Stevenson emphasized that small good choices over time make a huge difference.  We don’t need to try to “do it all” or do a complete overhaul of our lives right now.  We just need to focus on make simple, good decisions every day.
