The measure of our love is the measure of the greatness of our souls

This talk -- the delivery and the content -- encapsulates everything that is right in the world.

speaking truth
with humility
testifying of Christ
love in theory
love in practice



The video loaded very slowly for me, so here is the text if you're in a hurry. Although if you skip the video, you will miss a very touching part, my favorite: a visual representation of love and the reason I linked to this particular talk of Elder Wirthlin's. Help from Elder Nelson.

He died last night, and I'm really happy for him.

This is a great one. Elder Wirthlin's final conference talk will always be one of my favorites.... "Come what may, and love it!" I'm happy for him too!

I just watched his funeral and didn't realize he and President Monson were such close friends. And I love JBH on the back of the football helmets.
