Last weekend, instead of going to a church building, I (along with millions of other people) worshipped from the comfort of our own homes by tuning into General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm thankful that twice a year I have that opportunity, and that I could gather with family to watch and listen. There were many great talks, but for this week's TTOT, I've selected a few quotes that stood out to me.
