How an apostle’s testimony of his role inspired me in my own role

I just saw this video by Elder David A. Bednar, one of the 12 Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  One of the most unique aspects of our church is its claim that God still calls prophets and apostles and leads his church through them.  The video is his explanation of that sacred calling and all it entails.

While I thought it was fascinating to understand their “job” a little better, I was most touched by what I learned about how the Savior works and the simple integrity that is expected of all of us who claim be be Christian disciples.

If you have 10 minutes to watch it as personal devotional time, I think you’ll be inspired by it.

  1. I just finished watching it then hopped on over here to see that you blogged about it! I really like the stories of the members in Africa that he shares.

  2. Thanks for sharing that. It’s interesting to get his perspective on what his calling is all about. I liked how he said their focus is on individuals and families. I was also touched by his testimony. Simply stated, but very powerful.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this link, Steph. I agree, it gives us so much perspective as to how to approach our own responsibilities. When I was in the primary presidency my biggest regret was that we didn’t spend more time focusing on individual children and their families. And if we view our role as mothers as a commission to minister to each child, and teach and testify…follow the spirit to identify who most needs our witness and service each day. I could go on and on. Love this! Thank you.

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