Love It

I love General Conference Sunday. Two times a year we get to snuggle up in our jammies and listen to the General Authorities of the Church give council. A yummy big breakfast, baking cookies in between, and lounging all day without worries are just a few of my favorite things on this day.

I love listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and I LOVE that Elder Eyring is the new 2nd councelor. I have fond memories of him at Ricks College, he is such a great speaker. Also, when I see him I think of my friend Lindi. She adores him. For Christmas one year at Ricks, we bought her a book by Elder Eyring, tracked him down all over campus and had him sign it for her. I will never forget the look on her face when she opened that gift...priceless.
I feel so blessed to have a Prophet and other leaders today who give us guidance and words of wisdom to get us through the craziness of the world.
What a great day!

church in jammies is the best. and it seems to suit the one year-olds better than hard church seats.

Loved conference. better yet...can't wait to read it. I am sure I will get more out of it the second time around.

it's always great to hear what the leaders of our church have to say. when they say jump, I say how high, then I try my hardest to get there.

Jammies, a nice hot breakfast, cookies, AWESOME talks....what a day! I'm glad we all do the same thing!

I LOVE Elder Eyring too! I had one of his quotes taped on my dresser where I'd see it every day in highschool.

I also can't wait to re-read everything in the Ensign...so much good stuff. I loved Elder Oaks talk too!

I remember trying to hunt down Elder Eyring to get his signature. Is the story that someone ran into him at the bookstore? Someone remind me. I remember seeing him later walking down the sidewalk. . .
