“He's not afraid to do something different," Sister Nelson says of President Nelson. “He is saying, ‘What really is needful?’ If we're really preparing the Church and the world for the Second Coming of the Savior, he is sincere about that. He doesn't want us spending money, time, energy on anything that isn't really focused on that.”
President Russell M. Nelson is “fearless” in his focus as President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said his wife, Sister Wendy Nelson.
Speaking from Chile — the final stop of a five-country, nine-day tour through South America — Sister Nelson said her husband’s focus on ministering; simplifying and reducing; shifting to a home-centered Church-supported curriculum; using the full and inspired name of the Church; and emphasizing a covenant path comes from the Lord.
“He is not playing to the crowds with this at all,” she said. “He is only reporting to the Lord, and he is fearless with that focus.”
