General Conference (#LDSConf)--Saturday Morning Session


If you had a chance to watch General Conference this morning, you know how wonderful it was.  Prayer was emphasized quite a bit. You can view videos at this link.  

Here are a few quotes that jumped out at me:

Much of the important work of God is unseen in the eyes of the world. --Elder Neil L. Andersen


Because Joseph was a prophet--Elder Craig C. Christensen

Please, we must stop comparing ourselves to others.--J. Devn Cornish
We can pray for guidance about when to speak, what to say, and yes, on some occasions, when to be still.--Robert D. Hales



If we loved the Savior more, would we suffer less?--Elder Robert D. Hales

(This is not to say that suffering is due to not loving the Savior--rather, that the Savior is available to help us and sustain us during hard times.  As we turn to Him, we can receive strength.)

In times of trouble, our prayers become a lifeline of love and tender mercies. --Carol F. McConkie

Do you prepare yourself for a moment of prayer?--Juan A. Uceda

I wonder if we truly appreciate what we have. --President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I'm thankful for General Conference!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
