3 Things to Know from Oct 2021 General Conference

In his talk, Elder Ballard quoted something that Dallin H. Oaks said in 2017 – a good two years before COVID-19 took over the world.  He spoke of the worries and struggles of the world including “possible epidemics of infectious diseases. . . “ I love this reminder that God’s prophets and apostles are “seers”!

2. Something you might have missed

Elder Ballard talked about funeral experiences and how no one ever talks about the number of social media followers the person had, or the size of their house, or the make and model of their car.  While he said those things aren’t necessarily bad, they just really don’t matter in comparison with our relationship to Jesus Christ.

  2. following God, and 
  3. keeping God’s commandments.
