October 6, 2014 - a thought on something i learned during Conference

This week has flown by!  It was such a good week!!!!  One Tuesday we got to watch "Meet The Mormons."  It was sooooooo gooooood!!!!  It was so motivating and uplifting to see members of the church testifying of God and Jesus Christ not through words but with ACTIONS.  This Religion is supposed to be a Lived religion.  Not a spoken one.  And these amazing people are examples to me and how i want to pattern my life after.  God. Family.  Passion.  I have an important invitation to you.  Please take or invite everyone you can to see this movie.  The success of the first weekend it's in theaters determines how long it stays.  This movie will change the perspective those not of our faith, as well as those who are of our Faith who need to see what they are apart of.  They will see some of the TRUE examples of what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believes in.


         After The movie we had a Zone Training meeting.  Elder Fontes and I did a good job at motivating the zone.  It could have been the effects of the movie haha but everyone was pumped and inspired to DO WORK!. The training we had was energized and filled with the spirit.  I love being able to learn speaking skills and teaching skills with this wonderful calling. 

          What a GREAT General Conference we had this weekend.  All my questions were answered!  Its so amazing to see how inspired these Men and Women are to be so in tune with the Spirit, to touch the lives of millions with their words. One day i hope to be that worthy of such a blessing.  I just want to share some of my thoughts on one talk from this weekend.

          Elder Robbins gave a bold talk.  His question got me thinking, "Which way do you face".  He mentioned courage, in a way i never thought of.  Courage to turn away from temptation, to turn towards God and be an example of things that are righteous.  Growing up this is something i've experienced.  When temptation comes it truly does take great courage to turn away.  There are many influences in life that pull us in every direction, being tossed to and fro, with EVERY wind of doctrine. 

       The book of James compliments and confirms some of the thoughts i had as i listened to Elder Robbins words. 

James 1:6 & 8

       V. 6 "But let him ask in faith nothing wavering.  For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed"

       V. 8 "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."
Elder Robbins emphasized the principal of serving 2 masters, whether you serve God or Satan, plain and simple.  Nothing wavering.
What anchors us to the path that leads back to our Father?

Our Savior Jesus Christ... 

Plain and simple

As we do our best to strive to live like our Savior and make him the anchor in our lives we will never be carried by the waves of influence that surround us.

I am so grateful for a living Prophet and Apostles here on the earth today. 

I have a strong testimony that we can receive personal revelation and answers from God's servants... The Prophets.

I love missionary work.

all is well

Stoked to Serve 
Elder Soren
