“Single Adults Find Learning, Growth at BYU Conference,” Ensign, Oct. 1986, 79
Several thousand Latter-day Saints found faith-promoting meetings, valuable learning experiences, and friendship at the annual Single Adult Conference at Brigham Young University July 24–27.
More than five thousand single adults heard Elder F. Enzio Busche of the First Quorum of the Seventy talk about the blessings that can come to those who make covenants with the Lord and live up to them.
Elder Busche talked of gospel principles that can guide members who want to become the kind of disciple Christ called for in Luke 14:33: “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”
Sister Barbara W. Winder, Relief Society general president, also spoke to the group. She urged those attending to be obedient to the teachings of the Savior, avoid covetousness, and cultivate charity in their pursuit of perfection. Our Heavenly Father, she said, loves us and will strengthen us as we seek him.
The conference included a wide variety of workshops designed to provide gospel insights and strengthen individuals. It was sponsored by the Utah Valley Program for Single Adults. Among those attending were Saints from Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.
