Sister Dibb is married to my dad’s cousin, so that makes us practically like sisters, and therefore, I think it’s totally fine that my siblings and I call President Monson “Uncle Tom,” don’t you think? (If I knew how to make really tiny font, it would say here: “Not that we’ve ever met him or anything.”)
Anyway, Sister Ann M. Dibb gave a great talk in the Sunday morning session of General Conference called “Hold On.” It’s a fun and meaningful talk, plus Elder Holland referred to it in the talk we just studied last week.
“Heavenly Father has not left us alone during our mortal probation. He has already given us all the “safety equipment” we will need to successfully return to Him.”
“In the scriptures there are very few stories of individuals who lived in blissful happiness and experienced no opposition. We learn and grow by overcoming challenges with faith, persistence, and personal righteousness.”
As you read this talk, what are your thoughts and impressions about “holding on”?
We are already at week 15 (out of 25, I think)! Can you believe we’re only about 10 weeks out from Spring Conference? If this is your first visit to our weekly book club, welcome! (You’ll find details about GCBC here.)
