First--What I meant when I said I thought you were responding to Chuck, is that the first comment you made in your post to me addressed her summary of what President Hinckley said.

Next, in regard to these remarks:

[President Hinckley is] one who has the keys and can see what we cannot.

Absolutely! =o) Because of that, I don't want to be short-sighted and refuse to follow counsel which, because of what I can see, doesn't seem as good as MY ideas on the subject!

when we seek to know and do the Lord's will and the guidance of the spirit, we will dream dreams, have visions and prophesy. NOT to guide the church but to confirm the rightness of what we are supposed to be doing to help our families.

So right. I believe we have access to any of the gifts of the Spirit necessary for us in this day to bless our families and to fulfill our individual missions here in life.

I love D&C 46:9 which says that the gifts of the Spirit "are given for the benefit of those who love me and keep all my commandments...." ALL His commandments?? Darn. I try, but sometimes fall short of keeping ALL His commandments perfectly, so I guess this doesn't apply to me. But wait! There's more...

".....and him that seeketh so to do." Oh, well that's different. THAT would include me because even though I don't do it all perfectly, I do love Him and I DO strive to keep His commandments.

I liked Kellen's comments on us all becoming prophets and prophetesses too. One of my favorite questions to ask a Sunday School class is, "How many prophets do we have in the Church today?" Answer: "We don't know. Moses said that he would God that ALL the Lord's people were prophets!"

Enough playing today. Time to shop and get ready to wrap up the day. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciated your comments.
