It always go to fast. We always wait in anticipation and then it’s hear. I am more amazed each time how quickly we burn through 10 hours of church. It always ends too soon. Here are some of the highlights.
Elder Uchdorf spoke on patience. He told a story about how a professor at Stanford University did a study with 4 year olds. He would put a big marsh mellow in front of them and tell them to wait 15 minutes and the would get two. Only 30 percent would wait. It didn’t seem that significant to him. However, he kept track of the children from the study. Those that had waited had less behavioral problems, got better grades and made more money in their professions. Patients really is a virtue we need.
The Young Mens General President Brother Beck, spoke about the new Duty to God program they are going to be starting in June. President Eyring also spoke about it to. As far as I can tell the basica premise for the program is outlined like this. The boys pray, fast and discover what they are to do. The plan how they are going to accomplish what they need to do, and then they act with diligence to accomplish the plan. I am excited to get involved. I am sure it is an inspired program.
One of the general authorities spoke about using the Book of Mormon more diligently in our families. Another spoke about the importance of eating dinner together with our family.
I am looking forward to studying what what said and trying to put these things into my life so I can be better.
