The 179th Semiannual General Conference: Elder David A. Bednar

Saturday Session 1, Talk 5 – Elder David A. Bednar, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
-Joseph Smith – “More diligent and concerned at home”
Suggestion 1: Express love and show it.  Do it often.
-“I love you” From Spouse, Parent or Child is a rich blessing.
-Do it, even if you feel “unsure, awkward or embarrassed.”
Suggestion 2: Bare testimony and live it. Do it often.  Testimony is truth, witnessed by the Holy Ghost.
-Testimony From Spouse, Parent or Child is a rich blessing.
-Do it, even if you feel “unsure, awkward or embarrassed.”
Suggestion 3: Be consistent.
Scriptures read among outburst such as:
– He’s touching me!
– Make him stop looking at me!
– Mom he’s breathing my air!
Compares Family Home Evening, Scripture Study and Prayer as a brush strokes on the canvas of our souls…like his painting of a wheat field in his office.  Close up you only see individual brush strokes, but step back and you can see a beautiful painting.

  1. This talk meant SO much to my husband and I. His comparison to the painting in his office was so perfect and gave me such comfort and peace. I would LOVE to be able to get a copy of that painting for my husband for Christmas if at all possible. I don’t know the name or title or anything, though?
