2016 Conference Recap


2016 Conference Memories:
San Diego Singles Memorial Day Weekend 2016 Conference
Conference Theme: Against All Odds

From Psalm 91:
1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

from the 2016 Conference

John Bytheway

John Bytheway was born and raised in Salt Lake City, and served his mission in the Philippines. Following his mission he attended the University of Utah, and later graduated from BYU.

John has taught the Book of Mormon at Brigham Young University, and the BYU Salt Lake Center since 1996. In 2003, he earned a Master’s Degree in Religious Education. He is the author of more than two dozen books and CDs many of which, he says, are effective non-prescription sleep-aids. He served as bishop of the Salt Lake Winder ward.

John and his wife Kimberly have six children.

Dan Fuller

Brother Fuller grew up in Granada Hills, California where, as a teenager, he met the girl who would later become his wife at a stake dance. He attended UCLA for a year and then left school to serve a full time mission in Venezuela from 1974-1976. A year after returning from his mission, he married to his wife Diana and resumed his studies, graduating from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in history in 1979, and later from BYU with a law degree in 1982.

Dan and Diana have six children and many more grandchildren.

Dan has served as Elders Quorum President, High Councilor, Bishop, and as a member of the Stake Presidency in the Santa Margarita Stake. He currently teaches Gospel Doctrine in his ward, is a member of the Stake Sunday School Presidency and teaches a Church History/Doctrine and Covenants class each week to the Single Adults.

Dr. Greg Baer

Greg Baer, MD is the internationally published and translated author of the Real Love series which includes 17 Books plus DVD series and many audio books. Greg Baer is an American life coach, author and motivational speaker and founder of The Real Love Company, Inc., a non-profit organization. He has conducted over 300 seminars and corporate trainings and has delivered thousands of speeches to audiences across the country where he has taught the principles of Real Love.

As Tony Trupiano of Talk America described Dr. Baer; “You’ll want to listen to his program in a doorway – it’s like an earthquake! He rocked my foundation! Greg Baer touched me deeply. He’s got the answer to finding happiness in life”.

With Real Love Nothing Else Matters; Without It, Nothing Else Is Enough” To check out Dr. Baer further, go to his website; Reallove.com but we guarantee he is much better in person.

Brother Ramy Louis

A convert to the LDS Church, sought out “the Mormon’s” after visiting (and befriending) 12 other local churches in Bend, Oregon, the community that was his home for more than 15 years. The last of the 12 denominations was the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and yet he still hadn’t found the right fit for his spiritual journey. It was then that he realized the only people he knew absolutely nothing about were “the Mormons”. Due to a previous brief encounter with the Mormon religion while a music producer, there was great reluctance and what he describes as “a good measure of fear” as he walked through the doors of the Church in early October 2011, a decision that he would later declare was "the single best decision of my life".

While in Oregon, Brother Louis was the President and CEO of InteliTRAILER Inc., a cargo security technology firm based in Bend, Oregon. He also served as the President of the Life Center, a non-profit in Central Oregon and sat on numerous boards including Habitat for Humanity and Serendipity West Foundation. But what held his heart were the 200 high school students at Marshall High School, an alternative school in Bend, Oregon where he was a Life Coach, Counselor, and Educational Assistant who ensured that each student received the best opportunities available to them and helped them to find and reach their full potential. As he put it “my job was to make sure NO ONE got left behind”.
