186th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I say this each time we have General Conference, but I love the Sunday morning of General Conference. The session doesn’t start until noon, which gives us lots of time to relax. I got woken up at 6:30 by a call from work and was unable to get back to sleep, so that was unfortunate. […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I almost didn’t make it home from work on time. I have to cross a canal on the way home, and there is a website where you can check when the bridge will be up. I left work and it was supposed to be up in about an hour. Then 30 minutes later when I […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

I wish I was at home watching this, but I’m working today, so I’m watching this during my lunch break (and then some). I’ll be able to get home before the next session, and then my sons and I will go out with my father and my brother-in-law for tonight’s session. We’ll watch both sessions […]

186th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

In between sessions we watched Once I Was a Beehive. We’d never seen it before, and we quite enjoyed it. My wife is going to girls camp this year to be the craft leader, so the movie got her quite excited. We’re ready to start the final session. Here we go… President Dieter F Uchtdorf […]

186th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Normally we go to the sub-sational dinner before the Priesthood Session of conference, but tonight we went out to dinner at a local Chinese food place instead. It was a buffet, so I ate way more than I should have, but it was good! President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A choir comprised of students from Institute […]

186th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I thought I would nap between sessions, but I ended up watching the season finale of Star Wars Rebels with my kids. It was pretty awesome! The first session today was pretty good. This afternoon I guess we’ll get the sustainings and statistics, which are always interesting. We’ve had great weather this winter and spring, […]

186th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

We’re gathered in our family room. My daughter and I have some maple candies we got at the sugar bush this morning. My one son is drinking some milk and the other son is giving me shifty eyes (I’m not sure why). We’re settled in and ready to go… The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang How […]

185th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another conference has come and gone. I think my favourite talks of the conference were Elder Andersen’s talk on faith and President Uchtdorf’s talk about making our church experience more meaningful. Probably the most touching thing about conference was seeing President Monson struggle through his talk Sunday morning. He seemed to shrink physically before […]

185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

Here we go on the last session. It has been good so far, and there have definitely been several talks that really touched me. Obviously we’ll get to hear from Elder Bednar. President Henry B Eyring conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Praise the Lord with Heart and Voice Elder Jörg Klebingat offered the invocation […]
