The Leadership Training Library

Yesterday’s post about technology couldn’t have came at a better time.

This evening I was cruising around the ever-expanding church website at LDS.org and found their new Leadership Training Library. I recommend that if you haven’t already had a chance to explore this new resource you take the time to do it. You can search by priesthood group or auxiliary organization along the top of the screen, or by leadership principles along the right side of the screen. You can then watch the training videos by selecting them from the box below the video screen in the middle of the page. Each video is correlated with the new leadership manuals and can be used in your classroom, presidency, or quorum meetings.

Perhaps the most touching video I’ve watched so far is the “Watching Over The One” video in the Minister to Others section of the site. It tells the story of  Joshua Blackburn who went from being an actively engaged young man in his ward, to being inactive and getting into a crowd of friends who were not members of the church. I don’t want to give away the video, but I do want to emphasize that the principles in the video of “going after the one” are important, and principles which we should take to heart.

In a church where we are all called to serve one another and seek after the many “ones” who may be lost, this site can be a great resource to us in our various callings and assignments. So check it out. Take the time to watch some videos. Pray and seek revelation of how you might use the site to better serve those around you, and I promise that in so doing you and the lives of those you serve will be greatly blessed.
