    I wish David Archuleta the Best as he talks to the groups in espaƱol and in English.

    He has lots of talent!!

    Does anyone know if David's presentations will be archived on the LDS.org website
    or another web location, so that we can listen again??

    Tonight I can't participate because I have other duties, but it would be
    really nice to hear David A's words of advice and wisdom at another time.

    Thank You and God Bless....

    Goosehuntr, your "downstream" metaphor reminds me of the one(s)in Lehi's dream where a fountain of pure water springs forth from the Tree of Life, and the filthy river where people are wont to swim. I've often wondered, though the record doesn't state it clearly, if these bodies of water aren't the same one--pure and desirable at the head, but corrupted by men's misuse as it flows along.
    I think David will be fine, as long as he doesn't let his career go to his head and keeps the attention he gets in perspective. There's a marked tendency for career people to do the former.
    With the advent of social media, we're faced with the same dilemma that's come with all the other technological advances in media that have come along, even as far back as the invention of the printing press. How do we use them to further the work of the Lord, knowing that the adversary will also promote their use for his purpose? I trust that Bro. Beck, Sister Oscarson, and David himself will keep the purpose and direction positive.

    Putting God first no matter the cost in fame, fortune or perceived opportunity. David sought first the Kingdom of God trusting that all "these things" will be added unto him... But I'll bet he did what he did without much concern for "all these things." Love is love and it begins at the headwaters of the deepest part of ones heart. David does not drink from downstream.

    Amen, Cats. I'm thinking of all of the LDS "stars," be they athletes or whatever, who did not serve. I would never judge them, as they may have been led by the Spirit to not serve full-time as missionaries, but I know many of them have regrets. Two years could have an impact on certain careers, but in the grand scheme of things it's nothing compared to the potential growth and service a mission provides. I hope his example paves the way for others to so serve. Way to go, David!
