'A broken heart and a love for God is all we need to begin our journey' - Glenn's takeaways from worldwide LDS broadcast

Family gathering all weekend.

Our faith gathers to hear from our leadership two times a year.

We listen to very wise men and women in two sessions today, then the men meet at the church tonight (women last weekend) then two big sessions tomorrow.

It is great to anchor yourself and your family each fall and spring. To check our position with His stars and make sure we are on course.

Right now, one of our leaders is asking we need to ask ourselves:

Is my relationship with the church bringing me closer to Christ and the truth of the Gospel? Is it helping you make your commitment to Jesus Christ stronger.

If not, why? Why does it seem it works for some and not others?

Have we lost the plainness and simple nature of His plan? In other words, keep it simple. Living the Gospel doesn't need to be complicated.

Trust God. Love Him. Because we trust him our faith grows, the more we we love Him the more we want to serve him. The more we trust and love Him the more we will be filled with Faith, Hope and Charity.

Too many times we feel frustrated because we aren't where we are supposed to be. Dismiss this thought and know that the Lord never sends discouragement to do right.

Start where you are. Gideon and Moses saw themselves as unworthy. We must see ourselves as He sees us. His children that are meant to be happy.

It reminds me of the words my friend Pat said to me years ago when I was trying to sober up and live like a real man: "it doesn't have to be this hard."

How right he was.

A broken heart and a love for God is all we need to begin our journey.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
