General Conference - October 2009

  • You have the testimony of all your brethren
  • Let the evidence of God all around you soften your hearts
  • He lives, He loves us
  • Your personal knowledge of God will be the greatest gift you can ever give
  • Forsaking sins requires time
  • Forsake our sins by keeping the commandments
  • Relief will come in the timetable of the Lord
  • If you are concerned, counsel with your bishop
  • Repentance always means that there is greater happiness ahead
  • Do not trade what you know for what you do not know
  • The Lord requires of you what you can do
  • With increased spiritual strength we are able to develop self-mastery and live in moderation
  • Security comes from avoiding the excess of this world
  • When we sin, we turn away from God. When we repent, we turn towards God.
  • Do not set your covenants aside
  • The Savior is eager and able to forgive our sins
  • For most, repentance is quiet and private
  • It's a journey
  • We feel the changes we need to make
  • Spirituality yields inspiration and power to do it
  • "Was there yet more to be given?", "Is there more I should know?"
  • The Lord will not force you to learn
  • Recall how Satan has influenced you in the past in similar circumstances. Connect the dots, look for a pattern, and be prepared for the distractions
  • Even more amazing than modern technology is the ability to access heaven without hardware or software
  • Discernment allows saints to see things not visible, and feel things not tangible, see patterns, recognize schemes
  • None of the callings are intended for the fame of the person who holds them
  • Revelation from God is always compatible with His eternal law
  • Patience and perseverance are part of eternal progression
  • Unless we lose ourselves in service, there is little purpose to life
  • Often we live side-to-side, but do not communicate heart to heart
  • How often have you intended to be the one to help?
  • We are the Lord's hands here upon earth
  • I was in prison, and ye came in unto me
  • What have I done for someone today?
  • The natural man's tendency is to reject the spiritual heart. Even the sanctified must take heed
  • We must identify temptations that easily beset us, and put them out of reach
  • Moral discipline is doing what is right because it is right.
  • Society has failed to foster moral discipline
  • Moral discipline is learned at home
  • There must be constant teaching, mostly be example. An occasional reference to a gospel principle will not be enough
  • The intelligent use of agency requires knowledge of how things are
  • Children should not learn from experience that wickedness was not happiness
