Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow 2nd Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah 23 August 2015

Sacrament Service
A brother shared a story about his family history and how his ancestors came to Ogden.

The mother of a missionary going on a mission to Saint Louis, Missouri spoke the to us.

She shared her testimony about all the temple work that has been done for her family since 2012 and all the temples she and her daughter have been to.

The sister going on a mission spoke to us.

What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up this morning?  Was it how hungry you were?  Was your first thought that your had to go to the bathroom? Was your thought about the weird dream you had? Did you think about the Lord?

Where are you putting your loyalty? Is your loyalty with the Lord or the world?

We need to be totally committed to the Lord, not just for three hours on Sunday.

Satan knows us very well and he will do what it takes to keep us from doing good.

Good habits put us on autopilot, so we don't have to decide each time and they lessen Satan's power.

“I wish that every Latter-day Saint could say and mean it with all his heart: ‘I’ll go where you want me to go. I’ll say what you want me to say. I’ll be what you want me to be’ [see Hymns, no. 270]. If we could all do that, we would be assured of the maximum of happiness here and exaltation in the celestial kingdom of God hereafter.” (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson (1988), 344)

Sunday School
New Testament Lesson 33
What is a talent you have that you haven't used in a while?

While the spirit can move upon you add the Lord needs, generally having the spirit and gifts of the spirit are an active thing, just like keeping our talents sharp and alive.

Speaking in tongues is for edifying. (1 Corinthians 14)

We can dispute a point without being disagreeable. We can defend our position without acting in a way that chases away the spirit.

Elders Quorum
D Todd Christofferson April 2015 general conference talk, Why Marriage, Why Family
Love is when someone else's happiness is essential to your own.

Many more young people are delaying marriage. Why is that?

How do you define love to a six year old? How do you define marriage?

A worthy life goal is to live in such a way to greet Christ after this life without anxiety.
