General Conference

I love Conference. I'm so grateful for the opportunity we get twice a year to sit and be uplifted with the messages of the Gospel.

Every time Elder Holland speaks, I am inspired, uplifted and enlightened. His talk on Sunday morning, once again, did this for me. The commandment, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." was more fully understood as I listened to him speak of the remaining eleven apostles after Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection.

"We have neighbors to bless, children to protect, the poor to lift up and the truth to defend. We have wrongs to make right, truths to share and good to do. In short, we have a life of devoted discipleship to give in demonstrating our love of the Lord." -Elder Holland.

Every six months it seems the boys sit more still. And every six months more and more phrases catch their attention and I watch their heads raise up from their drawing pad and they tune in to the words being said, or they shout out the next speaker's name in excitement because they recognize them. For me, these moments are priceless.

I am so grateful to be a mother.
I am so grateful for General Conference.
I am so grateful for the Gospel.
I love my Savior.
