Lessons from Liberty Jail

Late last year, I happened to catch part of Elder Holland's CES fireside on lessons learned from the Liberty Jail. I was profoundly moved, as the passages of scripture we have from this difficult time have been consistently important to me, and I have turned to them time after time when I've needed more understanding about what I've experienced.

When I saw the talk reprinted in the BYU alumni magazine that came today, I was struck again. It's just so beautiful, and so true. The idea of our most horrific times as temple-prisons...I can't do it justice. Read the talk. Here it is.

hi, I'm a LDS from the Philippines. Thanks for posting the link to Elder Jeffrey Holland's talk, it was really helpful. His talk was one of the most profound fireside talk I've ever heard plus the blessings he gave to those who were present. Thanks again.
