What was/is your favorite Conference talk or moment?

Recommended Posts

Elder Ken W. Pearson's talk was right in line with some realizations I've been coming to recently.

Very timely for me personally.

I love to hear Elder Uchtdorf talks but Elder Eyring's was the best so far this session

I did not know about Elder Scotts family.. How sad.. and inspiring.. I dont think I could handle that..

Elder Uchtdorf gave a great talk tonight in the Priesthood session....awesome

Elder Holland's talk. Fantastic.

Did I not call it? I absolutely love Elder Holland and this talk is seriously one of the all time best I've ever had the privilege of listening to. Wow, how powerful!

Yesterday Bro. Rafael E. Pino gave a talk that made me cry. Not simply teary, but actual lip-quivering crying. It was awesome!

All of the talks have been excellent. I've stayed awake for most of them, even though I work this weekend. I don't want to miss anything. My favorite quote so far, and for the life of me I cannot remember who said it, was "We should never complain if we are living worthily of anything that happens in our lives.'

My favorite part so far...

Elder Anderson quoting Elder Packer - paraphrasing "I am a nobody, then he turned and looked at me, and said, And Brother Anderson you are a nobody. And don't you ever forget it. And if you do, you will be reminded in an instant. And it won't be pleasant."

This gives me comfort. :)

Brother Holland on the Atonement. I could listen to talks on the atonement all day long.

I loved all the talks. I'm having a hard time deciding today (Sunday) which talk was the best. I can't choose.

I loved the emphasis on the Temple this afternoon. I can't think of a better place to be when the world is falling apart around us.

Thank you everyone for responding. I've enjoyed reading your thoughts.

It was not a talk but I was greatly moved by the Choir singing after the 1st session this morning...We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet and they showed pictures of President Monson. It brought tears to my eyes.

I was impressed by Pres. Monsons cousel to use the internet for good, but watch very carefully because Satan will entice one to use it for sin. Counseled on pornography to stop immediatly. This subject seems to be growing rapidly in the World and is now affecting many in the church.

Mine so far was Elder Eyring's talk.

I noticed an more solemn atmosphere today while watching. Maybe that was just me.

Mine was the 1st presidency´s answer to my question:

Are my wife and I correct in refusing male doctors and nurses to violate my wife´s modesty because they are doctors, just because she is pregnant. I feel it is a violation of the law of chastity.

The reply came from Dieter F. Uchtdorf, who said that irrespective of the worlds decadence we should say: "I am doing the Lords work, and I cannot come down."

In other words, DO NOT LOWER THE STANDARDS. DO NOT SELL YOUR MORALS AND STANDARDS (OUR SYMBOLS AND TOKENS) FOR MONEY, by paying some male to do a task, that women did in the Bible, just because MORTAL MEN (Natural men (God´s enemies)) who serve the destroyer (of marriages) say "It´s all right" - We aren´t that "old fashioned" anymore.

We are LDS, We have Morals and Standards, and are proud of it.

I'm scratching my head over this one... How exactly is it breaking the law of chastity? He's not asking your wife to bare herself for sexual means.

IMHO, too many doctors, are in it for their own voyeuristic satisfaction, HENCE a violation of the law of chastity, as if one person gets satisfaction out of it that is enough. Becoming a doctor, is like becoming a certified peeping tom. Just like people who are addicted or prone to pornography or other forms of decadence.

You have my thanks and gratitude for your query. I know, that a lot of members, find it "alright", because they are "doctors", but this is how Satan wants us to think, and slowly and surely reduce The Church from the inside, as has been prophisied.

Helgi,

I'm totally baffled by your attitude towards doctors. Are you just targeting OB-GYNs or all doctors?

I've worked with doctors and I know many LDS doctors who are not at like you describe. The always have a female nurse with them when examining patients, they never express any satisfaction of the type you imply. Both my sisters and my mother are all RNs. They would say the same thing.

I'm not saying there aren't bad people in medicine. I'm saying there are bad people everywhere. The majority of people who go through 10+ years of school don't do it to get a "peek"

Elder Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve would take exception to your characterization. He's a Cardiothoracic Surgeon.

EDIT: You highjacked the thread. Start your own.

i think we might be a bit off topic here. if one wants to discuss if the law of chastity is broken by a woman using a male dr then a new thread needs to be started.
