General Conference Book Club Week 22: Elder Pearson

02_06_pearsWell, blog book club friends, we only have two more weeks left.  Then the following week will be the General Relief Society Broadcast followed by General Conference Weekend again. I’m quite proud (or “pleased,” as my mother would say) that we’ve been able to study almost all of the talks from the last conference.  It’s not often that I set a goal and stick with it for this long.  Cyber high fives.

This particular talk, “Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ” by Elder Kevin W. Pearson of the Quorum of the Seventy, was given during the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference.  I skimmed over it today, and this phrase caught my eye:

“Challenging times require greater spiritual power.”

That concept has been on my mind lately:  the whole idea that what used to be good enough is no longer enough– we have to try harder to be better.  I’m looking forward to reading more about it.
