Help finding a talk?

posted Mar 18, 2017 04:12:53 by SelenaRobins
There was a talk during Conference by Elder Faust back in the day where I remember him crying and feeling sorry about some minor offense that he had done years prior. I don't remember anything else outside of marveling that he was so sad about something so small (in comparison to my shortcomings). Anyone have a clue what talk that might have been? It's a long shot, but I thought I'd try.

As a small boy on the farm during the searing heat of the summer, I remember my grandmother Mary Finlinson cooking our delicious meals on a hot woodstove. When the wood box next to the stove became empty, Grandmother would silently pick up the box, go out to refill it from the pile of cedar wood outside, and bring the heavily laden box back into the house. I was so insensitive and interested in the conversation in the kitchen, I sat there and let my beloved grandmother refill the kitchen wood box. I feel ashamed of myself and have regretted my omission for all of my life. I hope someday to ask for her forgiveness.

This might be the talk you are referencing: October 1997 General Conference, The Weighter Matters of the Law: Judgement, Mercy and Faith.

The part I think you are curious about is almost at the end of the talk.

I hope this helps.
