Loved watching, what a wonderful devotional with them. Loved hearing their thoughts resonate with many of the things I have been feeling and impressions I have received. Further testifies that there are modern-day prophets and apostles on the earth today who receive revelation from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Love hearing their witnesses and seeing how personable they are. How awesome are they?! So funny too!
Rachel S 4 months ago Utah, United States
I love the face to face events. I feel the Spirit very strongly. We are very blessed to be able to have our personal questions answered. Because the Prophet and Apostales are the Lord's servants, this shows that God wants us to know that our questions are valid and our voices are heard. God is knowledge, wisdom, and light. He welcomes questions with the invitation, "if any if you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men librally, and upraideth not". I also love how the Apostales say that we don't always have the perfect answers, but we do our best. This was an amazing event where I felt the Spirit very strongly, and I am grateful for the opportunity to watch these events.

First of all I want to say I feel a kinship with Elder Oaks. I need saving sometimes too with the things that I say. Second, as I have pondered what was said and the questions that I have in my heart, I have come to the conclusion that life is hard. What makes the difference is how you look at your situation. I will use my own life as an example. I think I can honestly say nothing in my life has turned out the way I wanted it since coming home from my mission. I struggle with those sins that, as the Book of Mormons puts it, "doth easily beset me," and I have issues wit depression. Despite all of this, I made a choice a while back that I was going to be happy. There are times when I have to remind myself of that choice every day or even multiple times a day. Instead of shaming myself everytime I sin, I do my best to turn to the Lord, tell Him I messed up again and make a goal with Him that instead of going four days between mess ups, I am going to go five days, then six, then seven.

PLEASE can you make sure captioning works on videos for those who cannot hear or wear hearing aids. This goes for all videos, conference talks, and mMormon messages. It's inconsistent at best and it's frustrating knowing that I cannot rely on there being captioning so it's kind of a hit or miss what I can watch and what I cannot. So again, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can you put some effort into making this a thing? And hopefully this will be the last time I write this letter (which I've been writing on and off for the last 10 years). Thank you so much!

I’m a mother of three, and I actually tuned in while checking my Instagram. The answers didn’t just apply to young single adults. I caught the answer to how to we show love to those who have left the church. I really enjoyed the response to not preach but to just love them. I never intend to preach, but sometimes the answer isn’t a handful of “preach” but an action of love, whether it’s just by showing up and serving or just a phone call. I’m glad I was able to hear that portion of the face-to-face.

I had a great time watching the Face to Face event in my YSA Stake Center. I usually do not take notes when it comes to these things, but this time I wanted to open my heart and ears to the Spirit. I wrote down each question that was asked and I would write what answers were given. After I would write the answers, I noticed that I would hear additional thoughts come to my mind! Thoughts of how this question applies to my life or how I can learn from it. I had a spiritual experience of having the windows of heaven open to me and teaching me that there is always more to be said by God. I am grateful for this opportunity to hear from such great leaders. I know that they are called by God and are here to help and guide us throughout this life. This is my testimony of Prophets and Modern Revelation, in the name of Jesus Christ I know it to be true, Amen.

As always, I enjoyed listening to the apostles' insights on important questions of our day. One part concerned me, however. When Elder Oaks talked about how if we don't date now we may become to old to marry, I thought about how sensitive and heartbreaking this is for those of us, many of us who have tried so hard for so long unsuccessfully to find a marriage partner. I think there are some young people out there who don't care and aren't trying. But I think there are so many more, men and women, who want nothing more than to get married and have children but for no fault of our own have been unsuccessful. Such counsel is not helpful for us. It makes us feel like we're going to be old and lonely and it's going to be our fault. It makes us us feel as if dating and marriage are entirely up to us when in reality, we must trust in the Lord's timing. What age does Elder Oaks believe is too old to marry? Sometimes it is God's will that some of us marry older or not at all in this lifetime.

I loved watching the apostles speak and show their dedication to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They raise our spirits and help us to strive to be more like Jesus Christ. We desire to have testimonies as strong as theirs and our love and appreciation of their words resonate through our day to day lives helping us make decisions and choices. We learn from them and from the Holy Ghost how to choose the right. Listening to this face to face helped me to support people in my ward and helped me to know what to do to if a YSA was struggling. It also helped me to welcome new members of the church and helped me to understand how being a new member myself was important to the ward in educating my family and friends of the gospel. I love this church and I know that the Book of Mormon is true. This is the true church of God and Jesus Christ and as long as I live on this earth I will forever strive to be more like Jesus and help others. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

I am so thankful for the people who serve in our church, and constantly strive to represent Jesus Christ. I am also thankful that they seek to give us direction, and don't just try and give a blanket solution for us. God loves us so much that he's given us the freedom to choose, and the right to receive revelation. I loved their answers about just loving those who are struggling. Because love is the key to solving so many problems we face in this crazy world.

I really enjoyed the event last night. However, a question came to mind while Elder Oaks and Ballard were telling the men to get a move on with asking the women out on dates. What are the Brethren's thoughts about sisters asking the men out on a date? Is there a reason the emphasis is placed on the brothers?

Disappointed that the "many questions on this same-gender attraction topic" were reduced to two "safe" questions you spent 10 minutes barely even answering. So many very real and specific concerns related to same-gender attraction were brought up in the other questions asked here and you chose to offer the same old platitudes we've heard time and time again. Can we please get some real answers for once?

In reading some of the questions posted below, I similarly wonder about: the relationship between high-functioning individuals with autism in relation to their wards, the bleakness of post-college dating, makeouts and 'passionate kissing,' explaining transgender individuals to young children, how individuals with BPD are expected to cope, when to quit after a prompting seems obstructed, what makes a relationship 'right,' how to have a better attitude about wearing garments, why we don't feel truly satisfied even when we are living in harmony with the spirit, how there seem to be more active women then men and what that means for temple marriage, why many missionaries just seem to wish they were home, if the Church would say homosexuals are ressurected straight, if the priesthood ban was based on error, the attractive v. Christlike dating dynamic, and so on. I'm thankful for everyone's willingness to share, and I hope to study these themes in the coming months.

I have recently struggled trying to find an answer on wether or not I need to serve a mission. I would love to serve, but I want to receive an answer for my self and not be pressured by social media or family. I would also love stay home, since it is not required of women to serve, but what can I do if I don’t go on a mission but still want to be active in serving and participating in the church while here? How should I continue to seek out this answer? Is there something I should be doing to increase my knowledge to receive this answer?

Thank you Elder Oaks and Elder Ballard for taking your time to answer some of our questions. I love and sustain you both, and am grateful for your service. I knew it was not possible for every single question to be answered in a way that could satisfy everyone, but I must admit feeling a little disappointed. Im looking for answers that go farther beyond the surface, which you said at the beginning couldn't be done for this face to face. I understand, and I know your answers have helped someone. But I'm still looking for the answers to the questions of my heart. Elders, could you look over more of these questions and prayerfully consider them as you prepare for the next general conference? Can we have another face to face sometime that could be specifically for the deeper questions? I had so many questions and have read so many more that have resonated with me, that just weren't even mentioned in this face to face. Again, thank you for your service and for your efforts.

What can people do when they have bad priesthood leaders? That shouldn't be a thing, but it is...I've heard from several friends who have had judgmental, sexist, or simply uncompassionate bishops. How would you deal with that and why does the Lord allow these people to lead His congregations? Also, I don't believe that women need the same priesthood roles as men to be equal to them...but I can't help thinking that it's harmful to have solely male perspectives in many church councils/callings. For example, a young woman going to a middle-aged man to confess a pornography problem? The patronizing tone in which many male leaders speak of sisters? No thanks. Everyone is, to some extent, a product of their time and culture. And...I don't trust the perspectives of most older men on women's issues, which like it or not are also church issues.

I'm a high-functioning autistic individual and I have to deal with everything that often comes with that (non-heterosexuality, mental illness, executive dysfunction, huge mission difficulties, difficulty communicating with neurotypical peers, etc). There are tons of other members like me out there. And yet, no church leader (as far as I can tell) has ever addressed our particular difficulties. For example, I am susceptible to massive amounts of frustration, and occasionally meltdowns. Sometimes I can't tell the difference, and I can't always control myself. Is my agency limited? Also, I have unrelenting depression and fear becoming suicidal and jeopardizing my chance of entering the celestial kingdom. I want a family, yet I am asexual. I served an honorable mission, but it was a miserable lifestyle for me and destroyed my health. I want to feel the spirit, but no longer can. Please address the problems of people like me. Autism doesn't go away after Primary.

I'm a missionary in the church, one of our investigators told us he knows the church is true but isn't willing to change. He said he doesn't want to say he's going to do one thing and then join and do the other. He has word of wisdom issues and wants to have "fun". How can we open his spiritual eyes and help him understand the reality and the importance of be baptized and living the gospel?

I had something happened to me when I was a new member of the church. And it's made me see men differently on how they treat woman.

Its hard to talk to men (because you just never know what will happen) I'm afraid that it'll affect me when I want to have my own companion.

I was given a blessing by an elder a few months ago that told me to break up with my boyfriend because there was someone else waiting. But I haven’t been happy at all since I broke up with him. How do I know that that blessing was truly from God, and that elder knew what he was talking about and if I want to just get back with this boy, then would I be rebelling against God? Will I really miss out on as much happiness as I could have had with this other person that was referred to in this blessing? It’s just left me so lost and confused, especially after hearing all those things that were said tonight about finding an eternal companion and agency and all of that.

I keep hearing the use of the phrase "the one" when it comes to dating & getting married. People say "I haven't met 'the one' yet" or "all just know it when I see him/her". I was under the impression that there''s no such thing as "the one", that there only being one person we can marry goes against our agency? Didn't a prophet or apostle once say that any worthy man or woman with Christ-centered lives can get married. Is this no longer the case? What if you never meet "the one"? Does this mean that you'll never get married?

I understand that you discourage hanging out. However, a lot of single women only open up to men after hanging out. If the women whom I like want to be friends first, isn't asking for a random date going to hurt my chances?

If the LDS church wasn't true, would you want to know? Should I listen to evidence if it proves the church isn't true? How can I stay honest when faced with the facts and still beleive in the Book of Mormon?
