From the Church

What Church leaders have shared as part of President Nelson's #GiveThanks challenge


Editor’s note: “This week from the pulpit” highlights recent messages from General Authorities, General Officers, and leaders of the Church. 

In a video message on Friday, November 20, President Russell M. Nelson encouraged all “to turn social media into your own personal gratitude journal. . . . Working together, we can flood social media with a wave of gratitude that reaches the four corners of the earth.”

General Authorities and General Officers of the Church have joined in posting on social media to create this wave of gratitude. Here's a look at what they have posted so far. 

This story will be updated as more posts become available.

I #GiveThanks for Jesus Christ. He can heal us from heartache, sadness, and sin. And He will bless us with peace. I assure you that Jesus Christ is our Savior and our Master Healer.
