Students gathered in the John Taylor Chapel on Thursday, Oct. 25 to listen to President Henry J. Eyring and Sister Kelly Eyring answer students’ questions about their testimonies and give advice on how students can receive testimonies of their own.
“Personally, I kind of have problems being confident, as far as knowing that the decisions I’m making are in line with God’s will for me,” said Jason Graham, a freshman majoring in general studies. “How do you (gain) that testimony that this is what’s right and this is what needs to happen?”
After a glance at her husband, Sister Eyring explained what she would tell her children when they are trying to make decisions.
“The real key is to be listening to the spirit,” Sister Eyring said. “You have to take one step and get a warm or colder feeling. One step and it’ll work, but it requires a lot of faith and patience.”
President Eyring added to her response by referencing Isaiah.
“(He) is speaking on behalf of the Lord and talking about how there would be great challenges in Israel and great suffering, but that after that suffering would come a voice from behind,” President Eyring said. “‘This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left’ (Isaiah 30:21)”.
