General Conference Questions

At a response from a challenge in a post on Segullah, I'm going to break from my Articles of Faith posts to post my questions for General Conference. I will come back and edit this post later, as they are answered.

1) The ward doesn't really want my input, and my time is very limited. What can I do to serve in my ward?

2) There are many people struggling with "issues" in the Church, some of which I can empathize with. How can I help them feel God's reassurance and love within the Church?

3) What should I do next to deepen my spiritual relationship with God?

4) What can I now do to deepen my family's relationship with God?

5) How can I eliminate negativity when the negativity is continually refreshed, but the positivity is always being depleted?

6) What must I do to gain the blessing given to Nephi by God? Is it possible for me to have such a blessing, since I do not hold the priesthood?

7) Will it be enough?


  1. Those are great questions!! I can't wait to see if some insights on them can be gained from conference. Happy listening!

  3. It IS possible for you to have the blessing given to Nephi! You must do what the Lord commended Nephi for. "I have beheld how thou hast with unwearyingness declared the word...thou hast not feared them...hast not sought thine own life...but to do my will and keep my commandments."

  4. Thank you for your comments. I received answers to many of them, though I think I will wait a little longer to post those answers here so I can read from the transcripts and quote directly from what was said.

    Anonymous—Thank you for your words of encouragement. Looking over my questions, I see that any of them could be answered easily with general answers, but I was looking for specifics to me in my current situation. Only the Spirit can answer them, and I look forward to explaining how He has done so.

  5. I'm looking forward to the answers - whenever you end up posting them.
