Rebecca Schroeder, acquisitions librarian and department chair of the Harold B. Lee Library's Material Acquisitions Department, delivered the Devotional address Tuesday in the de Jong Concert Hall. Schroeder spoke on life changes we can make to be more like our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
In doing so, Schroeder compared sound waves to being in tune with the Godhead.
"Just as there are many reasons musical instruments can get out of tune, many of our life choices can get us out of tune with our Heavenly Father," said Schroeder.
Schroeder then reminded the audience of four actions the Nephite people took to help them be more in unison with our creators:
- Receive the prophets and stone them not
- Do not allow contention
- Be humble, not prideful
- Search, ponder, and pray
"To have our desires and actions matched with theirs [our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ], to be on the same wavelength, let us remember the example of the Nephites who were visited and taught by the Savior," said Schroeder.
If you missed Schroeder’s remarks, the Devotional can be streamed on demand on BYUtv.org and will be archived on speeches.byu.edu.
