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 […]

186th Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Well, here we go again! I know I haven’t been blogging regularly, but I do enjoy doing my write-ups, so I will continue it. This morning we went to a local sugar bush for breakfast and a bit of a tour. We’re home now, full with sugar, and ready to watch conference. I have no predictions […]

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 […]

185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The baptism was beautiful this morning. My daughter was thrilled to be baptized and confirmed, and the turnout from the ward was great. The entire service was probably only about 40 minutes long, and then we had some light refreshments until about 11:30. We’re all back at home now to watch the first Sunday session. […]

185th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Tonight we went to the annual “sub-sational”. My brother and his family is visiting for my daughter’s baptism, so he came with my father, my son and me. We had a nice time, but left room for our tradional post-priesthood session trip out. I’m pretty sure we’re going to Boston Pizza again. There were about […]

185th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I spent most of the time between sessions watching whatever came on the Mormon Channel. I love watching the World Report and found it interesting (as always). I also cleaned up more around the house in preparation for the family visiting tomorrow after my daughter’s baptism. We’re back in the family room again ready for […]
