Ok lets say you are on a Deserted Island... Okay you have your scriptures and manuals and all the normal stuff. But you could only take one talk, be it General Conference, BYU devotional talk or what ever other talk that has been published. You could only take one talk with you, which one would it be?

"All it takes is for us to get a little bit self-important and narrow-minded. Toss in a little fussiness, a bit of dogma, and a bunch of pride and you've got yourself a bunch of people who wouldn't recognize the truth if it sat on them."

Have You Been Saved? - Ensign May 1998 - ensign

Although I will admit that the title would probably be mocking me the longer I'm on this island...

Formerly known as 'Skippy740'.

 

"But make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters; in the months and years ahead, events will require of each member that he or she decide whether or not he or she will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions (see 1 Kings 18:21).  President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had "never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional, or political life" (CR, April 1941, p. 123). This is a hard doctrine, but it is a particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ." - Neal A. Maxwell, October 10th, 1978.

Gene England's "Why the Church is as True as the Gospel"

Why the Church Is As True As the Gospel |


"We are the ones who must constantly remind ourselves that the Church is not a place to go for comfort, to get our own prejudices validated, but a place to comfort others, even to be afflicted by them. It is a revealed and effec*tive opportunity to give—to learn and experience the meaning of the Atonement and its power to change us through uncon*ditional love. It is a place where we have many chances to re*pent and forgive—if, for a change, we can focus on our own failings and the needs of others to grow through their and our imperfect efforts."- Gene England

Most excellent!!

His Grace is Sufficient - Brad Wilcox

I'm sure many of you have read this already, and if not, READ IT. I love the way he describes grace. Incredible. I feel like I need to read this talk on a weekly basis as a constant reminder.

WILSON!!!!!!! WHY HAVEN'T YOU CLEANED UP THE HUSKS WILSON!?!?!?!?!!!!!!
WILSON!!!

you know I saw at a flea market someone had made these neat plaques with bible verses on them, but they weren't very detailed, I should make one, but paint it, all the words and little flowers, with a saying or verse on it (while the subject is here) though with the poem I like, it'd be more picture sized and probably best on paper vs wood

Probably something on basic raft building from one of the Backwoodsman Magazine conferences. You didn't specify that it had to be a talk published by the Church ;)

Of course, considering that "all the normal stuff" for me would mean I have it all on my Nook, there just might be a book on simple boat building in there already.
