Fundamentals in Following The Prophet FHE & General Conference Quiz

I hope that you all enjoyed General Conference this weekend.  I was sick, and so were my kids, but somehow I managed to hear more of conference than I did last spring.  (Thanks to my husband!)  Sick=subdued in our house, I guess.

I made up a little quizzie for you to do...just for fun.  You could even use it in your FHE tonight while you discuss the 14 Fundamentals in Following the Prophet.  Anyway, take your best shot.  I'll leave the answers at the bottom of this post so that you can check your own work.  Remember that this is based on my notes, so I'll take round-about answers, since this is also from my best memory!

Also, if you have young ones, you might like to print off the images that I found last night to go along with your discussion of the 14 Fundamentals in Following the Prophet (click below):

  1. what a good idea. I listened to it all including the sat sessions. then it was reviewed in the Deseret News. Great talks...

  2. I'm glad I was able to hear the entire conference, because the Saturday morning one was my favorite. Elder Holland's talk felt like a warm hug, and Elder Uchtdorf's combined with Elder Edgely's to inspire my post today. I also loved Elder Arnold's "What have you done with my name?" talk.

    Great sermons. There wasn't a dud in the bunch!
