Talk

Postby Momma Snider » Tue 03 Nov, 2009 10:35 pm

So I have to give a talk. The topic, more or less, is service. Does anyone have any great ideas (or even half-good ideas) for conference talks or any other sources that will help? Or any stories or other quotes?

This is a young single adult ward, so I can be a little more creative than maybe in some wards.

I wish I could be of more service. Nothing comes to mind, sorry.

From this last conference, President Monson's talk called <a href="http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-1117-27,00.html">What Have I Done for Someone Today?</a> and Elder Cook's talk called <a href="http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/0,5232,23-1-1117-29,00.html">Stewardship -- a Sacred Trust</a> both talked about service and were two of my favorite talks.

Momma, was your talk yesterday? If so, how did it go?

It went pretty well, I think. One little point I made is that since we're blessed if we give service, then we're also giving service if we let someone else serve us, so they get blessings.

And now it's over!

That's a great point, Momma, and one I had never thought of before. Thank you for sharing!
If you smile at me I will understand, 'cause that is something everybody everywhere does in the same language.
