The theme of the Conference was in Helaman"Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God."
The main focus of all the meetings was the importance of 4 basic activities that, if followed, will continually support and increase our faith:
1. Daily individual and family prayer.
2. Daily individual and family scripture study.
3. Weekly Family Home Evening
4. Paying a full Tithe and a generous Fast Offering.
These seemingly simple activities hold such power. They really are a manifestation of our covenant to remember the Savior always. Even though it may be difficult to begin or maintain these practices, as we put forth the effort to make them a habit in our lives, they bring such wonderful blessings: firmer faith, joy, consolation, and the purifying and sanctification of our hearts. All from simply "yielding [our] hearts unto God."
It's been really neat this past week as I came better to realize what a privilege it is to be able to devote all of my time and attention to God for 2 whole years. I'm already seeing the blessings and lessons that I have received throughout my mission so far, and I'm excited to continue to see those blessings flow.
I love this work, and I love all of you!
The Church is True!
