Highlights

1:30 Evan created the Come Follow Me app.

4:15 How the Come Follow Me app came about

9:15 Other communities/religions are driving innovation and creating apps. Why aren’t we?

13:00 The Come Follow Me app is directed towards members that struggle with the habit of daily scripture study. Even if the study is 5 to 15 minutes.

14:15 The most popular part of the app is the verse of the day that is accompanied by a story.

15:30 Another feature of the app is the devotional section. It’s designed to do it with someone else.

16:25 Another large part of the app is pulling content from many different creators. Lessons for adults and kids.

25:00 “The quality of your life largely depends on the quality of your questions.” What’s the question that you are trying to answer?

27:00 Whatever leadership role you have you should be asking a lot of questions. Focus on asking questions, not giving answers. Questions help you get input from others.

28:30 Asking questions in context of marriage and children

31:00 Questions to ask your kids

32:45 It can be effective to ask questions in advance. For example, if you are having a meeting then ask the question a few days in advance so that people actually have time to ponder it.

37:30 What do the members of my class or organization need right now? It’s not about what you want to share but what they want and need.

41:45 Evan’s favorite question: How would I rather be wrong?

45:45 Where am I giving my best self?

47:15 Ministering should come first and administration second.
