When I was growing up, watching the LDS General
Conference was never an option- it was mandatory.
However, my parents made sitting at the church, or my
Dad's office a learning experience & even enjoyable.
(Of course the M&M's my Mom brought helped)
I am not sure how they were able to have 7 kids watch
4 hours on Saturday & go back again for
another 4 hours on Sunday, and still
want to keep all of us at the conclusion!
But, it was important to them & they wanted it to be
important to us- and to this day, it is one of the most
important parts of my life. Which, is why I am sharing it
on here, hoping it will bless your life as well.
Every April & October, we are privileged to hear from
the living Prophet Thomas S. Monson & the 12
apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
There is power & strength from their messages because
they are men of God & share messages of hope,
peace, & love. In each conference session, I am
able to feel of the Savior's love for me.
Last Saturday night, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf,
2nd Counselor of the first presidency gave one of the
most wonderful talks I have ever heard.
I felt like my heart was healed from my own struggles.
I understood better that I need to live in the moment
now, instead of wishing for something greater.
And, most importantly,
I knew that my Heavenly Father was aware of me
& that he knows me personally.
This week as I was looking on my favorite
blogs- KiKi Creates, I saw this beautiful print from his talk.
(I printed the one on the right)
Here is the link to his talk
Listening to a prophets voice & those who serve
with him is a blessing for everyone.
I am grateful for the message long
ago from my parents to come & listen to
a prophets voice.
The inspiration is here- I hope you
enjoy it & I know it will bless your life.
