God Will Do Something Unimaginable by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“God has prepared His children and His Church for this time.”
Elder Uchtdorf shares the story of the pioneers experience with building the Salt Lake Temple. It’s an excellent example of how God uses adversity, and that everything happens for a reason. Accepting this principle makes life easier to endure during trials.
He Will Place You on His Shoulders and Carry You Home by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Just as the Good Shepherd finds His lost sheep, if you will only lift up your heart to the Savior of the world, He will find you.”
We are all lost sheep from time to time, and Jesus will always find us. No matter how far we stray away, He will find us if we want Him to – if we open our hearts to Him and His gospel.
The Infinite Power of Hope by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Hope in God, His goodness, and His power refreshes us with courage during difficult challenges.”
Hope is the key to enduring to the end. In times of trial and tribulation, staying hopeful will help us get through even the hardest of times in our lives. Elder Uchtdorf shares a time when his mom remained hopeful while transporting her children to safety during World War II, and it’s an excellent example to us all.
Your Happily Ever After by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Heavenly Father offers to you the greatest gift of all—eternal life—and the opportunity and infinite blessing of your own “happily ever after.”
While happily ever after might just seem like something of fairytales, it is an option for all of us! Our happily ever after consists of eternal life with our families in the kingdom of God, and that’s better than any fairytale we could every imagine.
Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Let us set aside our fears and live instead with joy, humility, hope, and a bold confidence that the Lord is with us.”
Fear has always been used as a motivator, but there’s no denying that love is a much more effective way of motivating someone. Love eliminates fear!
God Among Us by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“God is among us—and is personally involved in our lives and actively guiding His children.”
Even in the toughest of times, God is among us. We might not always realize His hand in our lives, but He is always there. Sometimes He gets through to us using other people, such as missionaries, friends, family, and sometimes even strangers.
Grateful in Any Circumstances by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Have we not reason to be filled with gratitude, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves?”
When we are going through trials and tribulations, it can be hard to be grateful. But gratitude is the key to getting through those hard times! We can always find something to be grateful for.
The Gift of Grace by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Today and forevermore God’s grace is available to all whose hearts are broken and whose spirits are contrite.”
There is no gift like that of God’s grace. Our Heavenly Father is a loving God. He forgives us for our mistakes, and gives us chance after chance to redeem ourselves. His grace is what will allow for us to live in eternal joy.
Daily Restoration by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“We need an ongoing, daily infusion of heavenly light. We need “times of refreshing.” Times of personal restoration.”
It’s important for us to take time to care for ourselves daily. We all need to practice self care – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually!
Believe, Love, Do by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“We achieve the abundant life by becoming true disciples of Jesus Christ—by following in His ways and engaging in His work.”
If we follow Christ’s teachings and God’s commandments, and do our best to follow Him, we are promised all of the blessings that God has to offer. We have access to an abundant, wonderful life.
Our Heartfelt All by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“If we want the Savior to lift us heavenward, then our commitment to Him and His gospel can’t be casual or occasional.”
It’s important that we value and prioritize the Gospel in our lives. If we want all of the promised blessings, we must do our best to be a follower of Christ and His church.
Jesus Christ is the Strength of Youth by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Put your trust in Jesus Christ. He will lead you the right way. He is your strength.”
This talk is an excellent reminder to the youth, or to any member of the church, of Christ’s love for them. He gives us strength when we need it most, all children should lean on Him in times of need.
Jesus Christ is the Strength of Parents by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“Help your children build faith in Jesus Christ, love His gospel and His Church, and prepare for a lifetime of righteous choices.”
Being a parent brings on so much heartache, stress, and worry. It is the hardest thing we will do in this lifetime, but also the most rewarding. But if we choose to rely on Christ as we parent our children, He will help us make the right choices and keep the worry at bay.
On Being Genuine by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“I pray that we will resist the temptation to draw attention to ourselves and, instead, strive for a far greater honor: to become humble, genuine disciples of Jesus Christ.”
This talk is an excellent reminder about focusing on what’s important, and not hyperfixating on worldly things, such as appearance. It can be hard to find a balance, but if we are keeping our main focus on God, then our heads will always be in the right place.
Lord, Is It I? by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
“We must put aside our pride, see beyond our vanity, and in humility ask, ‘Lord, is it I?’”
It can be easy for us to notice or call out other peoples shortcomings, or mistakes, but it’s much harder to call out our own. However, the best thing we can in our lives is to look inward and work on ourselves.
