3 Important Word Clouds: The General Conference Talks of Our New Apostles

Word Clouds are super popular right now on Facebook! You’ve probably been seeing quite a few of your friends making them using a new app; the more frequently they’ve used a word in the post, the bigger it is in the word cloud. Some are sweet; some are funny; some are quite telling.

I wanted to something fun or interesting with this word cloud trend! I already had all of the General Conference talks of our three new apostles saved on my computer from an earlier project, so it was fairly simple to create word clouds for them using Wordle.  Please feel free to share these on social media!

These are created from all of their talks given at General Conference, which includes talks given while serving in other callings.

If my Church talks, lessons, class comments, and born testimony word clouds look like these, I would be happy. I hope they do, but only the angels ‘silent notes taking‘  know for sure.
