April 2015 General Conference Notes – Priesthood Session

Conducting – Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Opening Hymn – For The Strength of The Hills

M. Russell Ballard – Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

m-russell-ballard-largeSpeaking to missionaries – past, present, and future.

Video chat (pretend it’s one on one).

It’s time to raise the bar.

Do you read your scriptures, pray, fast?

Do you think deeply about the Atonement while the Sacrament is being passed?

Do you attend all your meetings?

Are you honest?

Are you mentally and spiritually clean? (Pornography, etc.)

Are you careful with your time?

Is there anything you need to change starting tonight?

Preparation for life never ends.

Use missionary skills everyday  to bless the lives of others.

Do not think you’re too busy to study the gospel.

YSA need to date and marry.

Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know you the best and love you the most.

Be strong. Keep the commandments of God.

Ulisses Soares – Seventy 

*Speaking in Portuguese*

ulisses-soares-largeWe are waging a war with sin – we can and will win.

All of us need to become modern-day captain Moroni’s.

Have the courage to obey God’s will, even if you stand alone.

Don’t be confused by popular messages of the world that contradict the doctrine of the Church.

Our testimony will shield us from the adversary.

Find safety in the scriptures and the words of the prophets.

Be a righteous example for others to follow.

Larry M. Gibson

larry-m-gibson-largeSeek not the things of this world.

Teach the gospel at all times, and when necessary use words.

Always be an example of fatherhood.

Through your example they (children) can learn to respect, honor, and cherish womanhood.

Invite all of your family to come unto Christ.

No iniquity in family.

God wants you to see your purpose clearly.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf – Second Counselor, First Presidency

mormon-UchtdorfAvoid being deceitful in your desire to impress others.

Goals should address real needs.

“I’m here because I desire with all my heart to serve my Master.”

“I’m here to be a better man.”

Most bonfires begin with a single spark.

The God of creation who has power to breathe life into the universe surely has the power to breathe life into you.

We come to church not to hide our problems, but to heal them.

The praise of the world meant nothing to Jesus.

Henry B. Eyring – First Counselor, First Presidency

henry-b-eyring-largeYou have received the right to speak and act in the name of God.

Go before God often as a witness that we remember Him and are willing to be His servants.

Pray that God may recognize you and hear your prayers.

God hears your silent prayers.

Shut out the distractions.

Pray to know the hearts of those that you home teach.

You will need the Holy Ghost as your constant companion.

Warnings are part of the plan of salvation.

God hears our every prayer.

Thomas S. Monson – President

th-3Consider our callings, reflect on responsibilities.

We are united in our priesthood callings.

Take our calling seriously.

As a holder of the Aaronic Priesthood you are entitled to the ministering of angels. (DC 13)

Be at all times worthy of the priesthood. (DC 121:45)

We have answered His call. We are on His errand.

Let us learn of Him.

Closing Hymn – Master the Tempest is Raging
