How To Embed General Conference On Your Blog

lds-general-conference-embedAs always, General Conference this year was a treat!

I thoroughly enjoyed being able to learn from our wonderful brothers and sisters who help lead this church by inspiration. My wife recently challenged me to listen to one conference talk per day, as a way to learn from and apply general conference messages. I can’t say I’ve done perfectly with the challenge, but I can definitely attest to the blessings of studying General Conference.

Recently as I’ve been making tons of video players (about people, LDS missions, health conditions, etc.), I’ve been thinking- wouldn’t it be cool to create a video player to make it easier to share General Conference with others?

So I created an embeddable video player to do that.

Simply paste this code:

<iframe width=”670″ height=”834″ src=”” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

into a blog post (HTML text) on your website, and all of The Church’s official General Conference YouTube talks will appear on your site.

Anyway, I hope it’s helpful!

Happy listening and watching!

Teaching Teens about the Priesthood and Priesthood Keys

The ‘Come Follow Me’ lessons in June focus on helping teens understand the Priesthood and Priesthood Keys. This can be a tricky topic to teach because it is a huge area and it’s hard to find ways to break it down into small, weekly lessons.

In this video, I share a few of my favorite object lessons that teach about keys and about the Priesthood. Hopefully it will help you stimulate great discussions and find ways to help the kids in your class understand and relate to this core principle of the gospel.
