For this post I thought I'd highlight the notes I took at our special Stake Conference. I'm sure there's so much more to what I jotted down, but this is what stood out to me.
He said the chapel was filled with faithful saints (you and I were there!!), he loves the children of our Stake and mentioned how beautiful they are. It was very special to have all the Primary children stand and sing "I Am A Child of God". He then proceeded to tell us what we need to teach our children.
- to love God
- to learn of Christ
- about the sacrament
- importance of prophets
- to read the scriptures
- the restoration of the priesthood
- to be good missionaries and to be worthy to be called on a mission
- to pay tithing and go to tithing settlement
- to get all the education you can. The glory of God is intelligence
- to be good citizens
He asked us to care for and love our children. He gave us a blessing that we would feast upon the words of Christ, and be exemplary citizens. He sensed that there were some of ill health and he gave a blessing of healing and health. He blessed the missionaries and that we would be temple goers. He then closed by testifying that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church.
Thank you Elder Nelson for coming to our Stake Conference and edifying and uplifting us!
