GCBC Week 20: “Learning with Our Hearts” by Elder Walter F. González and “One Step Closer to the Savior” by Russell T. Osguthorpe

Whoa. Week 20 already? This week we will look at two talks because they go nicely together and because we need to pick up speed a little to cover everything before the next conference sneaks up on us again. These two talks are a nice fit because they address how learning and teaching both play a role in conversion.

  1. These talks help to remind me about the theme of the importance of conversion that I felt was stressed during conference. I feel so blessed to have so many resources and to hear so much counsel on how to help our children become converted to the gospel. I loved Brother Osguthorpe’s story of the sister in Costa Rica who said “I read the Book of Mormon every morning. Then I read something in Teaching No Greater Call so I can teach my children in the very best way what I’ve just learned.”

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
