183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the morning session of General Conference I watched The World Report (I like their new logo and theme). I then had a nap for about an hour. I awoke to some of the Bible videos being played. I haven`t seen them before, and they looked pretty good. Well, here we go with the final session… President […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The two General Conference Sundays have to be the best Sundays of the year! We can sleep in a bit, spent time together as a family, go for a walk, and listen to the beautiful music of Music and the Spoken Word together. This morning was particularly great as the weather was beautiful. Spring is […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I got home just as the choir was singing to open this session of conference. It was a hectic day at work, but it’s nice to be home now. President Henry B Eyring conducted A choir made up of students from Brigham Young University sang Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee Brother Russell T Osguthorpe […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

As mentioned in my Pre-conference notes, I had to watch this session at work. I got called out of my office at about 11:45, and didn’t get back to my desk until almost 12:30. I was surprised to note how anxious I was to get to my computer and watch conference. I felt like I […]

October 2012 World Report of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

One of my favourite things about General Conference weekend is seeing The World Report. This is a “news” program that the Church puts together highlighting what has happened in the last 6 months. Normally I watch the broadcast between sessions of conference, but didn’t have a chance to. I just watched it earlier this week. […]

Music and the Spoken Word

The only time I ever see Music and the Spoken Word is right before the Sunday Morning session of General Conference. I always listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the morning off my MP3 player, but never think to see if it available anywhere on the radio dial. Well, I checked out the Music […]

Redeemer of Israel

After going to Kirtland last year, one of my sons was obsessed with his old-style replica hymnbook. He read from it regularly, and sang many of the songs. One day he and his brother filmed the singing of Redeemer of Israel: It’s beautiful to hear your children singing the hymns of the gospel on their […]

“Have I Done Any Good?” Hymn 223

The annual HP Quorum meeting of our stake is this coming Sunday. For some reason, our ward was asked to form a choir to sing a hymn. Now, if there was anything that would make me question the inspiration of our stake leaders, this has got to be it! 🙂  We have about 20 HP […]

182nd Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

A few random thoughts as the conference comes to an end: I say this after each conference, and I think I will say it forever… I have a hard enough time staying awake for 10 hours, how do these men in their 70s and 80s?!?! General Conference was fantastic. I always enjoy it, but there […]

182nd Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The Sunday morning of General Conference is the best! I’m in the Eastern time zone, so General Conference starts at noon. We got up late, had a nice breakfast, and then relaxed for the rest of the morning. Nice! The family is gathered together now, and we’ll watch the session together. The other sessions we […]
