So this Tuesday just like every Tuesday we had a devotional...however this one was a bit different than the others! President Monson came to speak! It was so crowded I could not believe it! Lucky for me one of my friends got there 2 hours early and saved seats...which ended up being great seats. It was amazing to watch the entire Marriott Center fill with people 22,000. It was so noisy and hectic but, when the Prophet came in the entire place stood up and it was silent. It was amazing the spirt that could be felt in that building and how silent it was for the Prophet of the Lord. I am so glad I got to be a part of this. It was so cool to be so close to him. President Monson gave his talk on all the prophets he has known in his lifetime. He told a little story about each one and their favorite food, favorite song, and favorite quote. He told a lot of jokes the entire arena was laughing! I am so grateful to be going to a school where the Prophet comes to speak and to be able to take part in a devotional every Tuesday! I love BYU!
Here are two parts of the devotional I loved the most:
“What can we learn from the presidents whom I have known and about whom I have visited with you today? We can learn that they never wavered, never faltered, never failed; that they are men of God.”
“As the 16th President of the Church, my story is yet to be summarized by those who will follow. In the meantime, I pledge my life, my strength — all that I have to offer — in serving the Lord and in directing the affairs of His church in accordance with His will and by His inspiration.”
-President Thomas S. Monson
His entire address was inspiring! He is an amazing man!!
