The Power of Covenants

This week's article comes from the most recent General Conference. It is a talk given by Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the quorum of the twelve apostles entitled, "The Power of Covenants." The audio/video link is here.

Elder Christofferson very clearly explains what covenants are, why they should be eternally important to each of us, and the blessings received from making covenants. I especially like how he explains that even though we may be righteous and keep the covenants that we have made, we are not necessarily immune to trial and hardship but our covenants help us cope with the hard times.

These are the words of an apostle of the Lord and they are true.
