General Conference Addresses

  • October 2003 General Conference
    • He Knows Us; He Loves Us
      • “The Lord not only knows who we are, He knows where we are, and He leads us to do good.”
      • “The Savior gave His life for each one of us. He knows our joys and our sorrows. He knows my name and your name. When we covenant with Him at baptism, we promise to keep His commandments, to always remember Him, and to take His name upon us.”
  • April 2001 General Conference
    • A God of Miracles
      • “Just as important as these “mighty miracles” are the smaller “private miracles” that teach each of us to have faith in the Lord. These come as we recognize and heed the promptings of the Spirit in our lives.”
      • “Now, we know, as you do, that all petitions to the Lord and all fasts do not receive this same hoped-for answer. Our extended family also has faced the death of loved ones, serious illness, the trial of divorce, and children who are choosing another path. We do not always understand the reasons behind the tests that come with mortality. But our faith has grown, and perhaps yours has too, as we have watched loved ones, friends, and people we know only by reputation endure with faith in the Lord the most severe trials. They, too, know the God of miracles and witness in their extremity that whatever the future holds for them, the Lord knows them and loves them and is blessing them. They are sealed to Him and to each other forever, and they are willing to submit their wills to His.”
      • “All mankind—that includes me, that includes you—we can each have part in the Atonement, the greatest of all God’s miracles.”

Other Talks

  • April 2003 General Primary Broadcast
    • I Can Pray to Heavenly Father Anytime, Anywhere
      • “Where were you the last time you prayed? I have prayed in many places. I have prayed on the beach, in the mountains, in church, on the playground. I have prayed in my house, in an airplane, and at the hospital. I know that I can pray to Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere. I know He hears me.”
