Oh yes folks, it is that time again. GENERAL CONFERENCE!! Two times a year I am at my happiest when General Conference rolls around :) If you don't know what it is, twice a year, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints holds a conference in which the Prophet of the church, his Apostles, and Member of the Seventy give talks, give counsel to the people, and give the general welfare of the church. It's also a time where we sustain the men/women in their callings in the church...and pretty much a huge gathering for Mormons!! :) It's like the greatest ever, and one of the few times you can be spiritually enlightened in your PJ's :P
I have come this time prepared with questions to be answered, and I have definitely already felt like I've obtained some good knowledge and lots of answers :) One of the things that stuck out to me the most was their constant emphasis on the family. Especially these days, Satan does his best to try and break up the family :( I think these men have given great counsel as to how we CANNOT let this happen! Another thing I really enjoyed (besides Elder Uchtdorf's amazing accent ;D) was Elder Jeffery R. Holland's talk. One thing I really like about Elder Holland is that he is very blunt in the counsel he gives...and you KNOW he is talking business. His talks are amazing (check out his last talk from October 2009 conference about the Book of Mormon...AWESOME!) and he is just an amazing person.
I LOVEEE General Conference, and I'm so excited for the rest of it tomorrow!! :) It's such an amazing experience to hear from the leaders of the church and to see how much they truly love us. I love it. I love the Gospel. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Life is GOOD.
