The Bitter Cup and the Bloody Baptism- The Red Headed Hostess

Kind of a crazy title – right?

It comes straight from Elder Holland and it is one of my favorite all time talks.  There are only a few talks out there than can compare in how many times I have quoted them in one lesson or another.  We all need this talk at certain points in our lives, and we all know someone who may need it right now.

Read it yourself, read it with your spouse, read it with your family.

You have a couple of different printing options.  “Regular” is a full page and “Pamphlet” will require you to print off the first page, then put that printed page back in the printer so the 2nd page can be printed on the back side.  Then you can fold it in half and put it in your journalunder “Adversity”.

Regular:  The Bitter Cup and the Bloody Baptism

Pamphlet:  The Bitter Cup and the Bloody Baptism pamphlet style
