"Obedience brings blessings. Exact obedience brings miracles." -Sis. Wendy Nelson

There is a talk concerning the Light of Christ by Pres. Boyd K. Packer. It contains some thick, applicable doctrine.

Some things that I've learned recently out here:

  • All spiritual truths can be tested and proved, and are just as concrete as moral and physical laws. Test the truths and promises contained in the scriptures with faith and see if you will not be blessed.
  • If you pray specifically, you will be blessed specifically.
  • The prophet referred to in Acts 3: 20-24 is Christ. (JSH 1:40) The words of Christ is the Book of Mormon (2 Nephi 25:17-18). In Ether 4:8,10, Christ states concerning the Book of Mormon, "for I am he that speaketh. ...and if it so be that I do not speak, judge ye; for ye shall know that it is I that speaketh, at the last day." Similar warnings are given in 2 Nephi 33:10-15, Ether 4:4,6, and throughout the Book of Mormon. The Lord puts great emphasis on the Book of Mormon in these last days. So must we.
  • Simple, direct testimony brings people to Christ and confounds those who seek to contend.
