Product Description

Testifying that the temple is as a river of "truth, light, and love" - a fountain of restorative waters that will "heal our families and bring life to our branches, wards, and stakes," S. Michael Wilcox reminds us of the power of the temple to teach us, elevate our thoughts, and fortify us against the influences of the world.

"When we are in desperate need of freedom, comfort, or direction, when our aching hearts cry out, 'how long, O Lord?' our first thought must be: Where is the temple?"

So says Wendy L. Watson, who prescribes the "Celestial Therapy" available in the temple as the remedy for the time we are "weary, worried in despair, restless, lonely, misunderstood, indecisive, discouraged, overlooked, overweight, overwhelmed, overwrought, under appreciated, underemployed, or undernourished with love."

Each of the two outstanding talks from the BYU Women's Conference celebrates the incomparable gift that it the temple.

Great information
By , Submitted on 2019-02-18

This talk lasts for about an hour, Wendy Watson Nelson and S. Michael Wilcox speak. You can tell it is an old talk and Sister Nelson kind of sounds like she is advertising some kind of magical vitamin prescription during it, so it seems a bit funny, but there is tons of great information in it. I learned a lot and took plenty of notes. I would recommend listening to it at least once, especially if you can get it free with Plus. I would recommend this talk to all adults, especially for those who can attend or are preparing to attend the temple.
