The Life and Teachings of Elders Nelson and Oaks

Life of Elder Nelson
I love how Elder Nelson set an example of the importance of family. His children shared Sister Nelson’s feelings. Over the years, they’ve never questioned their dad’s love for them, each feeling that she or he was the favorite child. Quote from his child “I never felt Dad was too busy for me,” “We spent lots of time together.”
    Even with a difficult schedule, he made time to establish a lasting relationship with each one. Since he had to travel extensively, he often took one family member with him, either Sister Nelson or one of the children. Rather than considering this an extravagance, he viewed it as a wise ...view middle of the document...

Again it is reaffirmed that not just every worthy, able young man should serve a mission but every members of the church have the duty and responsibility to serve our master Jesus Christ.

Key Doctrines and Principles
I like how elder Nelson talked about “Teach of faith in God’s plan of salvation. Teach that our journey in mortality is a period of probation, a time of trial and testing to see if we will do whatever the Lord commands us to do."The knowledge that everyone is a child of God and that they have a purpose unique to them and them alone is something that every child should have. I know that I valued that knowledge so much as I went through my years in junior high and high school. Even now as a college student, I know that there are still things I need to do. Things that I can do that no one else can quite fulfill.

Favorite Quotes
"All that the future holds in store for each sacred child of God will be shaped by his or her parents, family, friends, and teachers. Thus, our faith now becomes part of our posterity’s faith later."

Why It Matter to Me
In my own life, I have seen so many families suffer and struggle through trials. Trials that come about because of the temptations and woes of the world. Our families should be our greatest strength, our support system, and our best friends. Whether you are single and lean on your parents during times of hardship, or if you are married and rely on your spouse, our families are people who can help us strengthen our faith and endure our trials a little better. Elder Nelson then goes on to say that even when sore trials come upon us, we must focus on teaching our children to have faith. This will help us remember our own faith and strengthen it.

Life of Elder Oaks
He is a man of Faith, “I will go and do”. I thought was interesting Elder Oaks was called to be stake mission president for the Chicago Stake in 1961. His law practice had him working nights, and he wondered how he would be able to fulfill the responsibilities of the new calling as well, Sister Oaks recalls, but he took it on faith. As he committed himself to the calling, the way was opened many times for him to finish his legal work early, or to achieve more than he thought was possible in the time allotted. there was ample evidence of Dallin Oaks’ personal focus on gospel principles. He emphasized the close connection between spirituality and learning, with spirituality necessarily predominant.

Testimony of Elder Oaks
A testimony of the gospel is a personal witness borne to our souls by the Holy Ghost that certain facts of eternal...
