My obsession with these modern technologies is more than just tech-envy. I really just love to be connected to people. Obviously, this is the perfect time in the history of the world for me to be alive!
As much as I love the access these inventions give me to the rest of the world, I try to make time each day to shut out the voices of the world, in order to more clearly hear the promptings of the Holy Ghost in my life.
When we pray, read the scriptures, and follow the Lord's commandments, we can expect to feel the quiet promptings of this third member of the Godhead guiding us in our daily lives...but only if we are willing to take the time to listen.
The Holy Ghost prompts us in many different ways. He speaks by a still small voice to both heart and mind. He witnesses of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. He can warn us of danger, confirm the rightness of a personal decision, bring all things to our remembrance, and teach us of gospel truths. I'd like to see a Blackberry do that...

We Are Not Alone: "This Church is a Church of revelation. Our challenge is not one of getting the Lord to speak to us. Our problem is hearing what He has to say. He has promised, “As often as thou hast inquired thou hast received instruction of my Spirit” (D&C 6:14)...Our ability to hear spiritually is linked to our willingness to work at it."
