This week’s Sunday talk will be by Mormon Soprano. The post being re-blogged is called “The Four T’s”.

ABCOne of the most memorable talks given by President Gordon B. Hinckley, 15th Prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints was given in November of 2000, and entitled “A Prophet’s Counsel and Prayer for Youth“. But LDS Church members know it as “The 6 B’s“; which stand for “Be Grateful, Be Smart, Be Clean, Be True, Be Humble, Be Prayerful”. Later on, he added 3 more (‘Positive’, ‘Still’, and ‘Involved’), for a total of 9 B’s. 4th Be TrueMormons love this talk. It was an instant hit. It was masterful in it’s wisdom, but simple enough for a child. It was easy to memorize. And, crafty Mormon women everywhere, (and a few savvy marketers) were thrown into a creative frenzy with the whole B’s = Bees (as in Bumble Bees & Beehives). A darling little quick-read book was eventually published entitled “Way To Be: 9 Ways To Be Happy And Make Something Of Your Life“. (I highly recommend it)

Bottom Line: B’s are a “popular letter” in Mormonism.

But, what about the T’s?

I didn’t know about them until today. There’s Four – and I’m afraid they’ve been sadly overshadowed by the B’s. So, I aim to bring them out of obscurity!

I stumbled on the T’s in a First Presidency message published in the September 1997 church Ensign. It was written by then-apostle, now current LDS President Thomas S. Monson.

The title says it all: “Tears, Trials, Trust, Testimony“.
