Well, am so grateful that the Lord has called such to be His servants because they are humble enough to listen to the spirit of the Lord as they speak, i've felt that they do so as i've been viewing the video.

How can i tell if the church is true? Is a spiritual experience really a spiritual experience or just my subconscious mind ?

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!

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.

as a missionary the face to face was a really uplifting, some of these questions we face them in our daily activities and most importantly to know how to resist temptations and to be able to help our friends who are having difficulties. . .looking forward for the next one
