Sister Jones Shares Blessings of Acting When God Speaks in New #HearHim Video


In the latest video and blog post in the “How I Hear Him” series, Primary General President Joy D. Jones shares an experience when she heard in her mind the name of a woman, followed by the words, “Call now!”

Acting on the spiritual prompting, Sister Jones said she was able to share with the woman, who had stage 4 cancer, a “very emotional, sweet, tender experience.”

“I would never take credit for [God’s] sweet, perfect love,” she said, “but oh, how grateful I am that He allows me to just be a piece of the puzzle!” 

As we learn to respond to these kinds of promptings, Sister Jones said, we are uplifted, taught, inspired and loved. “It makes you want to do it more and more.”

The video was shared on Sister Jones’ social media accounts and accompanies her blog post titled “Consistently Striving to Hear Him” on
