6A Slide Design Project


Speakers Outline

A friend of mine decided to convince his wife to buy a new truck

  • Once she was convinced, he decided to prove the trucks worth
  • Went to cut wood in the mountains and found himself stuck in the snow
  • He decided to cut wood and load truck
  • Trying again, he found that the truck moved

It was the load

  • The load provided the traction
  • The load allowed him to move forward

Each person carries a load

  • Our loads come in many forms
  • Both positive and negative
  • We should ask ourselves if our loads are producing the spiritual traction to:
    • Take us along the straight and narrow path
    • Take us to Heavenly Father in the eternities

Yokes are designed to share loads

  • The Saviour invites each of us to take His yoke upon us (Matt 11:28)
  • We are yoked with Christ by covenant
  • We are strengthened by His yoke
  • The Saviour succours and thus lifts us

The load is necessary

  • It helps us rely on Jesus Christ
  • As we rely on Him we come to learn that:
    • His yoke is easy
    • His load is light


I started off by looking for a talk. Several appealed to me but most were not usable. When I thought of and listened to this talk, “Bear Up Their Burdens with Ease,” by Elder David A. Bednar given at the April 2014 General Conference, I could visualize the imagery in my mind and was determined to make it work.  The message is that through the Saviour’s Atonement we can use the burdens of this life to take us safely to the next life with Our Heavenly Father.   Thee audience is the general adult membership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but is pertinent to all people. Once I created the story line the salient points of the talk were even more clear and I created my storyboard based on those ideas.

Critique Report

I uploaded my slide project to slideshare.net and then shared it on Facebook for critique by my classmates. Both Lori Lee Hamblin and Margery  Sabolsky suggested that I needed to find more images rather than repeat as I had done.  Rebecca Jones and Steph Dee both commented that some of my lighter colours were difficult to read.  Taking their advice into account, I found a few new images to use for some slides.  I also changed to a single font colour throughout the slide project and I changed the background of a few key words to increase visibility.  I then saved the changes and re-uploaded the file to slideshare.net.
