Work and Learn

This is an awesome talk by President Uchtdorf from the most recent Priesthood Session. He notes that two things can help us get through difficult times: work and learning.

I can't say enough about how wonderful this talk is; it's quite inspiring, and I think it would do wonders if everyone in the country would read it and apply it.

God of Truth

Reading Elder Walter F. González's talk from this past General Conference, I came across an interesting point.... see for yourself:
...the brother of Jared recognized that the Lord was a God of truth; therefore, He could not lie. What great hope this attribute brings to my soul! All the promises in the Book of Mormon and the promises given by the living prophets today will be fulfilled because He is God and cannot lie. Even in these turbulent times, we know that things will be OK if we follow the teachings learned from the Book of Mormon and the living prophets. Once we learn about an attribute of Christ, such as the one recognized by the brother of Jared, we should work to implement it in our own life.
Amazing insight, eh? I never thought of it that way.
