The Importance of a Name by M.Russell Ballard.

I loved this talk from the October 2011 General Conference by Elder Ballard. I've always been very grateful for the name I was given. I was named after my Great-Grandmother Malinda Rogers an amazing woman I never had the opportunity to meet. I'm also a Nevitt, a name I hold sacred and I'm so grateful that my Mema and Pop taught me what it means to be a Nevitt Knight and I pray I never let them down.

Elder Ballard talks about the name of Christ--a name I have also taken upon me when I was baptized. He reminds me that more than my Great-Grandmother or my Mema and Pop I need to live up to that name that I've adopted at baptism.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!
