The Song of the Heart: Using the Sacred Hymns

 
I have chosen to talk about something today I feel I am somewhat experienced in. By the introduction you may have realized it has to do with music. I am going to talk to you about something that you may or may not have known before: it has to do with a doctrine of the Church that isn’t talked about very often, a doctrine that may be new to you. Hopefully it will be exciting to you. At the conclusion of my remarks, I will invite you to accept a personal challenge to do something for yourself, for those around you, and for those in your wards and stakes. For many years to come it will bring great happiness and joy in your church service.
 
If I asked you if you believe there is a doctrine of music in the Church, I wonder what your answer would be.

5 Principles to Live and Lead By


I am honored to be invited to speak to you students today. I have long respected the quality of education provided to those who attend here. Although limited, I have two very personal exposures to the work done at this campus. My wife’s father attended LDS Business College, in 1938, hoping to improve his employment opportunities. Even though he didn’t obtain a certificate, just having LDS Business College on his resume landed him a good employment opportunity.
Additionally, in my early days of working at the Church I was in need of a secretary. I interviewed several outstanding candidates and selected one who had just graduated from LDS Business College. She was an excellent secretary. She was as good as any I have had since.

            Brothers and sisters, I’m grateful for the opportunity to be here.  I’d like to ask you a question today as I begin, and I’d like you to think about this for a few minutes.  How have you been blessed by someone who has shown charity to you? 
            Suppose that you came hurriedly in to this meeting today.  You have a lot on your mind—school, projects due, reading and more reading.  At least three tests this week.  And you’ve been asked to present a paper on a Gospel principle in your institute class.  And then, on top of all of that, you have a calling, you have a job, you may be married, you have a family, or you may also have a social life.  At least, you hope to have a social life.
            Well, you think about these things, and you

He Will Help You Fulfill Your Noble Dreams By: Michael Ballam

He Will Help You Fulfill Your Noble Dreams

It is true that I sang a command performance at the Vatican and at the White House, but shortly after doing so the Pope died and we impeached the President. So you remain here at your own risk here. It is true that many singers of the Metropolitan Opera have come for very, very small fees. We have an ensemble company, which means that everyone is paid the same thing to do the same work, and they come because of the environment that we have tried to create.
