How Do I Strengthen, Uplift, and Serve Others at Work, When I'm Exhausted Myself?

March 17 02:20 PM
3228 WSC

Often we know what is the right thing to do, but when our family requires attention, we have a demanding church calling, and are dealing with difficult things in our own lives, how do we find the energy and time to do thoughtful things and to help others in the work place?

Hosted by: Virginia Pierce for Carolyn Rasmus


How to Achieve Mighty Prayer

March 18 09:30 AM
Varsity Theater

Learn what the Savior teaches about prayer and overcome "cliche level prayer." Learn how to pour out your soul and engage in mighty prayer. Better understand how to change the life of your prayers.

Hosted by: D. Kelly Ogden


How Would He Have Me Serve?

March 17 03:40 PM
3211 WSC

There are countless ways to bless the lives of others. How do I know which gifts and talents Heavenly Father would have me nurture and share? How do I discover what He would have me do?

Hosted by: H. Julene Butler


Intellectual and Spiritual Exercise: Become Strong and Help Others

March 16 10:50 AM
3211 WSC

The scriptures teach "strengthen your bretheren in all your conversation," and "Seek not to declare my word, but first seek to obtain my word." If this counsel is for each of us, what must we do to obtain the Lord's word? We must intellectually and spiritually exercise to strengthen our minds and spirits. This exercise must include reading the right things, being in the right places at the right times, and communicating with the right individuals about the right things. This talk will outline possible exercise programs.

Hosted by: J. Kelly Flanagan


Moments That Matter

March 18 10:40 AM
Varsity Theater

Everyone experiences moments that make a difference in their life. Unfortunately, the significance of such moments is rarely realized by those who contributed to the experience. As a result, we tend to underestimate the influence and contribution we make in the lives of others. This presentation considers the importance of standing ready to facilitate those moments that really matter.

Hosted by: Matthew Richardson


Quiet Laughter and Serious-Mindedness: The Awkward Roles of the Mormon Humorist

March 16 12:00 PM
3220-3224 WSC

A fun discussion of Mormon humor using some of the speaker's own cartoons and pieces by other humorists.

Hosted by: Kerry Soper


Surround Yourself With Greatness

March 16 09:30 AM
Varsity Theater

"Surround Yourself With Greatness" is a quote from President Hinckley. In keeping with this theme, Chad and Michele will share various football experiences and related stories which will focus on how the gospel has helped them in their lives.

Hosted by: Chad & Michele Lewis


The Power of Selfless Service

March 17 03:40 PM
Varsity Theater

Through introspection, we come to realize that strengthening others comes from becoming more selfless in our relationships. As we find this key to ourselves, we gain power to serve others even more effectively.

Hosted by: Duane Roberts


Trading Moccasins: The Role of Empathy in Professional Service

March 17 03:40 PM
3228 WSC

Starting with Will Rogers' creed, "Never met a man I didn't like," this presentation will suggest ways in which we are too quick to judge others based on initial impressions and behavior. Could we better serve others if we tried to put ourselves in their shoes and tried to understand - or at least give the benefit of the doubt! - their motivations, as well as their divine worth?

Hosted by: Van Gessel



Why Do We Do What We Do?

March 17 02:20 PM
3211 WSC

It is sometimes easy to get caught up in the day-to-day duties and tasks associated with our employment. It is important to step back on occasion and remember why the tithe payers sacrifice so much to support BYU and its mission.
