Recent Messages from Prophets, Apostles, and Other Leaders


“It is no small thing, my brothers and sisters, to have a prophet of God in our midst. Great and wonderful are the blessings that come into our lives as we listen to the word of the Lord given to us through him.”
—M. Russell Ballard, “His Word Ye Shall Receive,” April 2001 general conference

How the recent messages from leaders, including those given in the October 2013 general conference, can help me.

Wilt Thou Be Made Whole?

Elder Timothy J. Dyches explains, “As we repent and become converted to the Lord, we become whole, and our guilt is swept away.” What can we do to feel the effects of the Atonement more as we face mortality’s challenges?

Drawing Closer to God

Elder Terence M. Vinson teaches, “The Lord wants us to develop the faith that will help us rely upon Him in solving our problems and trust Him. Then we can feel His love more constantly, more powerfully, more clearly, and more personally.” How does the Lord bless our lives as we experience trials?
