Wednesday Words

President Henry B. Eyring gave a talk at the Sunday morning session of conference called “A Witness”. It is about the Book of Mormon being the best guide to the growth in our lives. He gave the example of when he was asked to speak at a university graduation.  He was asked not to bear witness of Jesus Christ when he spoke and was immediately conflicted by what he should do. After praying for an answer, he was immediately taken to the examples of Nephi, Abinadi, Alma, Amulek and the sons of Mosiah in the Book of Mormon. He went ahead and bore witness of Christ in his commencement speak and to his surprise was applauded, even by the university president who later told President Erying that he “heard the words of God”. He said that “the effect of the Book of Mormon on your character, power, and courage to be a witness of God is certain. The dosctrine and the valiant examples in that book will lieft, guide, and embolden you”. This talk really resonated with me as I strive myself to study the the Book of Mormon daily in hopes of gaining these very things.
