I have oficially been blown away by the spirit!! I dont know how many prayers have been answered and how many questions have been answered!! All i can say is the prophet is a spiritually minded man and knows how to please god! So what i really had been wondering these past few months and days is what the prophet malachi says in the last two verses of the old testament. “ and he will turn the hearts of the children to their fathers and the heart of their fathers to their children” i had been wondering alot lately about what that really means and sure enough the apostle David A. Bednar answered my question. If we read what he says by sending elijah the prophet before the second coming we come to understand that its the sealing power of the priesthood that he gave to joseph smith and oliver cowdrey in the temple. The power to seal, the power to baptise for the dead. The temple work. I just hit me that gods plan is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man, and how can he do it for the people who never had the chance to get baptised or sealed?? Temple work. We have the opportunity to seal and baptise our ancestors and turn their hearts of gratitude to us, and we have the opportunity to seal and baptise our children and turn their hearts of gratitude to us!! I never new how interested i would be in family history search! When i get home we are all doing family history search and we are going to go to temple and turn the hearts of our ancestors to us, their children!! I absolutely loved conference!! So much revelation. Another frase i loved from the prophet that really helps me be more humble is “I acknowledge gods hands in all things” in small and simple words, we are nothing. Everything we accomplish is thanks to god. We accomplish nothing save it be by god. I love the prophet and one day my goal is to hug Thomas S. Monson and tell him thanks! It will happen!! I hope each and everyone of you have learned something new and are applying it to our lives, because it does no good unless you apply it. Its like money, its no good unless you use it!! May the lord open your hearts and minds and may the treasures of god be opened up to you!! Obedience is the first law of heaven!
