Second Quorum of the Seventy (April 5, 2008 – October 5, 2013)

General Conference Addresses

  • October 2009 General Conference
    • Being Temperate in All Things
      • “In a spiritual sense, temperance is a divine attribute of Jesus Christ. He desires for each of us to develop this attribute. Learning to be temperate in all things is a spiritual gift available through the Holy Ghost.”
      • “Being temperate means to carefully examine our expectations and desires, to be diligent and patient in seeking righteous goals.”
      • “We all seek peace of mind, and we all desire security and happiness for our families. If we look for silver linings in this past year’s economic downturn, perhaps the trials some have faced have taught us that peace of mind, security, and happiness do not come from buying a home or accumulating possessions for which the debt incurred is larger than our savings or income can afford.”
      • “When Jesus Christ, the greatest of all, suffered for us to the extent that He bled from every pore, He did not express anger or revile in suffering. With unsurpassed self-restraint, or temperance, His thoughts were not of Himself but of you and of me.”
