Come Play Conference Wordles! (October 2012 edition)

By: Ardis E. Parshall - October 15, 2012

Conference means a lot of things … one of least (but most fun!) things being playing our traditional Conference Wordle game. The text of some of the talks and songs and other features have been run through the engine at Wordle.net, which analyzes the number of times each word is used in that talk. Words that areused most frequently appear larger; words that appear only a few times are quite small.

Your role is to figure out what talk is represented by each Wordle here. It may help to refer to the Conference list here. Please give us the name of the speaker and the name of the talk … and please limit yourself to solving one puzzle to give others a chance to play. If there are still puzzles unsolved at the end of the day, I’ll open it up for anyone to solve additional puzzles.

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve been waiting for you to post these!

    #1 is Be (should be “Bee” ☺) Anxiously Engaged by Elder M. Russell Ballard from the Saturday Afternoon Session.

    Comment by Chocolate on my Cranium — October 15, 2012 @ 8:31 am

  2. And Chocolate gets us off to a good start!

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 15, 2012 @ 8:54 am

  3. I’ll guess that #20 was Elder Oaks’s comments on children.

    Comment by Amy T — October 15, 2012 @ 8:59 am

  4. Hooray! Love the Wordles!

    #2 is President Eyring’s “Where is the Pavilion?”

    Comment by Paul — October 15, 2012 @ 9:02 am

  5. #19 is my favorite hymn “On This Day of Joy and Gladness.”

    Comment by mahana — October 15, 2012 @ 9:12 am

  6. And we have three more winners!

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 15, 2012 @ 9:32 am

  7. No. 3 is Elder Scotts’s “Joy of Redeeming the Dead” talk.

  8. Indeed it is, Alison.

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 15, 2012 @ 10:10 am

  9. #4 sure seems like “I need thee every hour”.

    Comment by HokieKate — October 15, 2012 @ 10:19 am

  10. It’s practically spelled out there in sentence order, isn’t it, HokieKatie? :)

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 15, 2012 @ 10:20 am

  11. Too busy to think too hard, but #9 looks like the song “If the Savior Stood Beside Me”… I was in Primary the year they taught that. At a family reunion (mostly not LDS) a couple years back, while I was goofing around with my guitar as we sat around the campfire late late on 4th of July night, when my LDS nieces requested that song. Not a dry eye. Love that song.

    Comment by Coffinberry — October 15, 2012 @ 11:21 am

  12. Number 5 is Elder Marcus Nash’s talk, where he told of hiking near Macchu Picchu.

    Comment by Mark B. — October 15, 2012 @ 11:32 am

  13. Two more solved. I’m especially glad you got Elder Nash’s, since he’s one of the few (not the only) non-Q12, non-1P speakers, which might have made it harder for people.

  18. #18, The First Great Commandment by Elder Holland?

    Comment by charlene — October 15, 2012 @ 1:25 pm

  19. Mine got stuck in the queue while lindberg was posting, and now I see that the numbers are above the puzzle not below. Playing-Fail.

    Comment by charlene — October 15, 2012 @ 1:32 pm

  20. In the mouth of two or three witnesses, charlene — yours confirms that lindberg got that one (and allows you to work out another one, if you’d like).

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 15, 2012 @ 1:40 pm

    Comment by Jami — October 15, 2012 @ 2:12 pm

  24. Chris and Jami, you cross-posted (with, of course, a correct solution), so if you’d like to solve another one, you’re welcome to.

    EmiG,the sustaining wordle always makes me laugh. I’m glad you enjoy these like I do.

    Comment by Jami — October 16, 2012 @ 10:42 am

  37. Haha! You are channeling everybody else! (In both cases, the crossposting happened because someone’s comment was caught in the moderation filter — it isn’t because you didn’t refresh your screen.)

    Try another one … or two … or six …

    Comment by Ardis E. Parshall — October 16, 2012 @ 10:48 am

    Comment by Jami — October 16, 2012 @ 10:57 am

  40. 16. Of Regrets and Resolutions By President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

    Sixteen, not six, was the bugger. No distinctive words in that one. Phew!

    Comment by Jami — October 16, 2012 @ 11:04 am

  41. Paul and Jami, you’re both right. Bravo!

  44. 14. Is Faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ Written in Our Hearts? By Linda K. Burton

    Ladder and pit are the helpful words in that one.

    Comment by Jami — October 16, 2012 @ 11:50 am

  45. While I’m at it, I’ll pick the other low-hanging fruit — #18 is Pres. Eyring from the priesthood session. I remember the talk for #13, but I can’t remember who gave it. I guess I could look at my notes, but I haven’t yet.

    Comment by lindberg — October 16, 2012 @ 12:00 pm
