SMW 012: Understanding Priesthood Power Through Personal Revelation

In this episode, I’m sharing what I’ve learned about priesthood power. One of the biggest things I’ve personally learned is that understanding priesthood power is about more than studying scriptures, reading conference talks, and attending the temple. For me, understanding priesthood power has been about asking questions and seeking personal revelation to find answers to those questions. 

Each of us can know in a very individual way what our Heavenly Parents want us to know about priesthood power. Why? Because God is a personal God. He can give you personal revelation to the questions you seek answers for about priesthood power.

I hope listening to this episode will spark your own questions and your own journey to understand priesthood power.
