General Conference Book Club Week 16: President Eyring

01_07_eyrinWell, it finally happened.  My General Conference Book “Club” has now dwindled down to me writing a Sunday post and, ahem, then writing the only comment on it.  (This is the part where you say stuff like, “Oh, I’m so sorry, Stephanie.  Your GCBC was the best idea that anyone ever had!  The only reason I’m not participating right now is because my DVR is so full of good stuff, I prefer reading romance novels while I lay by the pool, Let’s face it, General Conference is so 16 weeks ago I have swine flu in my eyes and reading is really difficult right now.”)  So, I think your best bet back into full health and a fullness of joy is to join the GCBC fun again.

>>This week’s talk is “Adversity” by the amazing President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency.  Click here to read the talk.<<

This is one of my favorite lines from his talk:

“My purpose today is to assure you that our Heavenly Father and the Savior live and that They love all humanity. The very opportunity for us to face adversity and affliction is part of the evidence of Their infinite love. . . . It is clear that for us to have that gift [eternal life] and to be given that trust [endless posterity], we must be transformed through making righteous choices where that is hard to do.”

Anyway, even if you don’t decide to comment on the talk here (clearing throat and raising eyebrows), you should really read it.  It’s a great message.  I would love to hear your thoughts though.  Have a great week.
