#LDSConf – Mary’s Talk on #HisDay

Mary gave a talk at church today in her primary program:

When we get baptized we learn about the word of God.

The word of God includes the Bible, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Book of Mormon.

We can also hear the word of God at General Conference.

President Monson will speak to us, and he is a true prophet of God.

He tells us to obey Heavenly Father, and that we must repent.

He teaches us to be kind.

At General Conference, we learn about the gospel, and the Holy Ghost carries that message to your heart.

General Conference can be watched all over the world. In Africa, or Japan, or Jerusalem or anywhere.

General Conference is one important way that the gospel is preached all over the world.

I know that the prophet teaches the word of God and that he teaches the Bible.

I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God.

By getting baptized and getting the Gift of the Holy Ghost, we can learn to understand the gospel.

The gospel helps us to learn what God wants us to do.

If we follow the gospel, then at the end of this life we will get to see our grandpas and grandmas, and will get to live with Heavenly Father again.

I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
