Shorts: Efficiency paralysis-- when it just doesn't matter!

Do you sometimes experience a loss of words giving a blessing? Take heart, because so does President Oaks! Why is it we think some priesthood holders give better blessings than others? How can we give blessings when the words don't come? Is the inspiration the Spirit or just me? How can we know the best options for my life?

S4E18: His Yoke Is Easy and His Burden Is Light

Sis. Dennis's talk, His Yoke Is Easy and His Burden Is Light is Matthew's least favorite conference talk of all time! Frankly, he felt it was so heavy on "don't judge" that it bordered on minimizing disobedience. But as he thought about it, the Spirit whispered, "a talk you struggle with is the one you need the most." So he decided to sink his teeth into this talk, dig through it to find some gems, and share it with us. Join Matthew and Melissa in discussing the tug of war between clarity v charity and niceness v kindness. And tons more dog puns. 🐶 Resources Truth and Tolerance by Pres. Dallin H.
