It’s Week 3– So glad you’re back! This week, we will study a beautiful and simple talk by Elder Alan F. Packer of the Quorum of the Seventy. This talk, “Finding Strength in Challenging Times” was part of the Saturday morning conference session; it was actually right before Elder Christofferson’s talk that we just studied in Week 2. Its basic message is that we are capable of receiving personal revelation and building a faith-filled testimony, both of which will give us the strength we need to face challenges in our lives and in the future. The talk is rather brief, but I love the clear and powerful truths and promises he expresses. I’m excited to read your insights and personal experiences with these principles.
As in weeks past, just leave your comments here on this post. The previous weeks’ posts will remain open indefinitely, so you can always return to catch up or revisit those great talks as well.

In keeping with Elder Packer’s talk, I wanted to share this short video put out by the Church testifying that the gospel IS simple and God teaches us on our level. Maybe I was particularly moved by it since I’m currently serving as the Primary president, but it’s a beautiful testimony of how personal and uncomplicated the gift of gospel knowledge can be.
