Countdown to Conference: Follow President Nelson’s 5 suggestions to increase faith and trust

by | Sep. 03, 2021

In the Sunday morning session of April 2021 general conference, President Nelson issued a direction invitation with a powerful promise: 

My dear brothers and sisters, my call to you this Easter morning is to start today to increase your faith. Through your faith, Jesus Christ will increase your ability to move the mountains in your life, even though your personal challenges may loom as large as Mount Everest. 

Your mountains may be loneliness, doubt, illness, or other personal problems. Your mountains will vary, and yet the answer to each of your challenges is to increase your faith. That takes work. Lazy learners and lax disciples will always struggle to muster even a particle of faith. 

To do anything well requires effort. Becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ is no exception. Increasing your faith and trust in Him takes effort. 

He then gave us five suggestions to increase our faith and trust: 

  • • Study 
  • • Believe 
  • • Act 
  • • Partake of sacred ordinances 
  • • Ask 

The next session of general conference is coming soon, and what better way to show the Lord that you value revelation than by following through on the prophet’s previous counsel? To set you on your way, we’ve created a four-week study guide to help you act on each of President Nelson’s suggestions. Whether you have an hour to study each day or only a few minutes, there is something in this guide for you.
