Elder Scott always helps you realize that spiritual powers are all around waiting for people to block out the world, and let spiritually flow with delight and a soft reply.

His reverent firmness always gives voice in the everyday drama, the sifting, the blindside hits, unexpected curves, to give back peace to the drama of life.

A Spiritual backbone always gives voice, if you don't speak the good things that you feel, where to they go? they are gone forever, bless the people who speak.

His vioce is steady but soft, and more caring then anything, yet he rejoices. I love the many details, like having a pen handy so you can write down inspiration, his details are steping stepping stones, how he opens his mind and life to what he's thinking, and knows, helps explain the unexpected, and shares what he feels.

We are so blessed to be guided by prophets and apostles. We would all do well to heed their counsel and direction; and as we do our lives will be greatly blessed. Thank you for your address, Elder Scott.

Please....when can we hear a re-broadcast?

I agree with counsel given from Elder Scot, we need a listening ear to move our selves from certain limitations experienced in life. Like a {blue print} for our life, the holy ghost will and can make it possible to guide our thoughts and eventual action to success. As latter -day saints ours is the previledge to ask our eternal father in humility what he would have us do ,inorder to walk the path of righteousness.

when we take proper steps to find out who we are we will realise that as sons and daughter"s of a loving eternal Father great wealth of potential is made available to help us progress.

when we choose not to take thought and ask again and again,sorrows set in and our faith is left wanting.

We find in the Doctrine and Covenants,section 44, verse 2...excercise faith in me ,i will pour out my spirit upon them in the day that they assemble themselves together.

Verse 5 gives added counsel " that your enemies may not have power over you: that you may be enabled to keep my laws: that every bond may be broken wherewith the enemy seeketh to destroy my people."

Think what great blessing the lord promises we good people remember to keep his commandments.

Listening to Elder Scott is always refreshing and instructive. Part of the sanctification process for us all is to listen and follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost.

We cannot become like the Savior if we do not follow the universal admonition we all received at our confirmation - "Receive the Holy Ghost."

So many of us have it, but so many more do not understand that following the promptings leads to sanctification and that is what we promise to do each Sunday when we partake of the Lord's emblems. Sanctification will cause us to change as the impurities of our lives are removed over time, but only if we are persistent. It does require patience.

I love Elder Scott for his gentle way of reminding us to live up to our promises.

Thank you, Hermano Scott, We had a lovely young Spanish Speaking Choir sing at Stake Conference in Aug. and Stake Temple Sat. Hno. Contreras got his Endowments at the Oakland Temple. The Tongan and Pacific Saints love to sing here and they enjoyed your visit. Vaya con Dios!

Elder Scott has always been one of my favorite speakers and this talk proved no different. I would, however, love to be able to hear the entire talk, instead of just a short report of it. Is this possible?

The "Law of Asking" entails asking responsibly. That is, we must be careful for what we ask, as we have been warned to "ask not, that ye may consume it on your lusts", and, "Yea, my God will give me, if I ask not amiss". And, as Elder Scott advises, we must be willing to write down and do that which we are given, or it will rise to condemn us.

May God ever bless Elder Scott, and all of Father's leaders, that we might all be led into a state of Zion (not the bank), for Zion is the "pure in heart".
