I am so excited to learn that Elder Oaks will be the commencement speaker! My son is graduating from BYU on April 19-20, and I can't think of a better speaker for his commencement. I am certain that Elder Oaks will give some great counsel to these graduates.

Elder Oaks is an outstanding speaker. He articulates very well and often defends doctrine logically and even with explanations that satisfy any secular critics. This guy announces our beliefs, explains how they function to promote what is right on every account, and does so with a positive and uplifting attitude. For all of us who enjoy philosophy, debate, law, etc- he is an outstanding example of how we can model all of our discourse. Of course, they all are wonderful examples and speakers and all have messages we all need to heed. Oaks just has a slight sweet spot for me sometimes. The guy is just awesome!
