President Eyring conducted the Saturday morning session, which featured brief remarks from President Monson and talks from Elder Scott, Sister Matsumori, Elder Clayton, Brother Osguthorpe, Elder Bednar, and President Uchtdorf. Direct quotations (based on my notes) are given in quotes; phrases without quotes are my summary of the remarks.
President Thomas S. Monson:
- Announced five new temples: Brigham City, Utah; Concepcion, Chile; somewhere in Brazil; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Sapporo, Japan.
Elder Richard G. Scott of the Twelve, on being guided by the Spirit:
- A humble but struggling priesthood leader in Mexico teaching a lesson moved Elder Scott to inspiration regarding his assignment there, while a well-educated Sunday School teacher in the States, using obscure examples, struck Elder Scott as one trying to impress rather than edify or inspire his class.
Sister Vicki F. Matsumori, Second Counselor in the Primary General Presidency, on feeling the Spirit:
- Being touched by the Spirit is like being wrapped in a blanket.
Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the Presidency of the Seventy, on bearing burdens:
- “People struggle everyday under burdens that tax their souls.”
Russell T. Osguthorpe, General President of the Sunday School, on teaching:
- “We are all teaching future leaders of the Church.”
- “Learning and teaching are not optional activities in the Kingdom of God.”
Elder David A. Bednar of the Twelve, on being more diligent and concerned at home:
- “Express love, and show it.”
- “Bear testimony, and live it.”
- “Be consistent.”
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, on showing love as a disciple of Christ and the unconditional love of God for us:
- We become disciples of Jesus Christ by showing love: If ye love me, keep my commandments.
- “Love should be our walk and our talk.”
- “Love is the way of the disciple.”
