"But We Heeded Them Not" by David A. Bednar

General Conference Conversations

We love Elder Bednar! Today, I talk about his talk “But We Heeded Them Not.” Here’s a recap of questions to think about: “The combination of inspired lyrics and majestic melodies helps me to learn essential gospel principles and stirs my soul.” What hymns or other music do this for you? What mocking or scorn are you hearing? From friends, family...members of your ward, leaders...about promptings and answers you've received? "What helps you to “heed not” worldly influences, mocking, and scorn?" How do your covenants allow you to block out or stand up to the mocking and scorn in your life? What is the Lord telling you? What questions do you want to study further? Contact me! FB: General Conference Conversations IG: @generalconferenceonversations Email: genconfconvos@gmail.com
