The new First Presidency was announced yesterday. President Thomas S. Monson is our new Prophet, with Henry B. Eyring as first counselor and Dieter F. Uchtdorf as second counselor.
I have always loved President Monson. He is such a wonderful speaker. His talks are always my favorite at Conference time. It's so obvious that he is a man of God. I remember when we lived in Washington DC he came to speak to us. It's one of the first times I think I actually understood that the man standing before me was an Apostle of the Lord. I don't remember what he talked about but I remember how I felt that day.
President Eyring is another one of my favorite speakers. I always seem to be able to understand the message he is giving. Does that make sense? There are certain apostles that I seem to connect with more than others, President Eyring is one of those.
I've had the opportunity to meet President Uchtdorf a couple of times through a good friend of mine. What an amazing man.
I love how effortless the whole process has been. There is no drama, no politics. It's simply the Lord's annointed taking their postions at the head of the Church. It just reaffirms my testimony of the Church and the leadership of it.
We truly are in good hands.
