Here’s the link to Sister Neill F. Marriott’s talk: Yielding Our Hearts to God
Here’s the general outline I made:
- Personal reformation begins with a (1)change of heart.
- (2)It will work out, even through trial.
- For the meek and faithful, things both bad and good, will work out for the better, in the time of the Lord’s. (3)The Lord’s time.
- Seek to do His Will, (4)be yoked.
- (5)“Father, is there more?” Always search for more that you can do.
- (6)Wait for answers. In the process of finding our answers, we open our heart up and in patience we are humbled.
- Healing of the heart begins with (7)yielding to the Lord’s way. Even when it’s not what we want.
- Through gratitude we can humble ourselves(8)Humble through gratitude
- If we earnestly appeal to God, (9)He takes us as we are, and (10)makes us more than we ever imagined.
This talk really hit me during conference, it was a great beginning to general conference as well. As I came up with phrases, stories of the bible started coming to mind that fit them. I love paintings, so I decided to use some of my favorite paintings as the background for each power phrase. However, knowing each had different style of painting, I thought making my scheme black and white would even the playing field and that my text would have a better chance of standing out. The audience I was aiming for were those familiar with scripture stories, and to inspire them in a similar way that the talk inspired.
In the creation process I had some really good feedback from my husband, especially on the last slide. I had a hard time getting the letters to stand out on the boy in armor, and he suggested a glow- which usually I think of that neon obnoxious glow, but I found out a way to mute it just enough to help my words stand out. He also helped me when I wasn’t sure something looked funny or with where I put words or how. (To help one word stand out I put it in white, but it didn’t seem to flow very well)
The other critique that was very helpful was Sister Peterson’s. She helped me see and make a more unified look with my text so they all were similar in position. Also in one of my slides the smaller words were too separated and two other I had tangents with the sides of the slides. (one of these I hadn’t cropped the painting so looking at it in my work space it looked fine, but the text was actually write on the edge.) The other I moved down away from the edge to give it more space.
