18-Month Old Memorizes Faces of Apostles and Prophets and Recognizes “Friends” on Television During General Conference

18-Month Old Memorizes Faces of Apostles and Prophets and Recognizes “Friends” on Television During General Conference

In preparation for last April’s General Conference, Chelsea and Ben Austin were working with their 18-month old son, Oliver, on memorizing the names of the apostles and prophets.

Mind you, he doesn’t even know his colors yet.

But sure enough, using 8x10 pictures of the apostles and prophets, Oliver, in almost perfect fashion, could pick out all of the apostles and prophets, from Elder Holland to Elder Renlund.

With his cute red and white striped pajamas on, and pacifier in mouth, Oliver listens as his dad, Ben, says the names of the apostles and Oliver finds the right one.

After having memorized all of the names and faces of the apostles and prophets, Oliver was very excited in April 2021 to see his “friends” during General Conference on the TV in his living room!

I love your site, Ben. Love to follow Sara on her mission....you always have pertinent, faith-filled articles. I'm 88 and got off facebook when I was scammed too many times, so I'm not on social media, but I love to use the computer, email and texting on my phone. Thank you for your great work.
