187th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I saw this every 6 months, but I love General Conference morning! I slept in until 7:30, which is pretty late for me. We got up, watched a family movie together while having a yummy French Toast Bake that my wife made. We then played a game and went for a walk. My wife and […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, it’s over. I think my favourite session was the Saturday Afternoon General Session. I mentioned that I had some things that I was hoping to get some inspiration for. I can’t say that I received any particular answers, but I have definitely felt the Spirit, which helps me to have some clarity. I appreciate […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

Immediately following the first session, we had some birthday cake for our daughter. She wanted an ice cream cake, so we got one from the local Dairy Queen. We then went outside in our back yard to do some work. It was a little chilly, but when working it just felt like a beautiful Fall day. […]

184th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, it’s over. It was quite good. I think my overall favourite session this time was the Priesthood Session. Each session had a talk I enjoyed, but that had more that I enjoyed in just the one session. Overall, here are the talks I particularly enjoyed: Jeffrey R Holland from Saturday Morning General Session Russell M […]

184th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

I’m sitting in our den with my father getting ready to watch the conference. We’ve got pizza, wings, chips, and pitas ready to go. I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to type with chicken wing sauce all over my fingers! 🙂 President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A Priesthood choir made up of […]

182nd Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Another conference has come and gone. It was excellent. I enjoyed almost all of the talks, and definitely felt the Spirit. In fact, when President Monson announced the change in the missionary service age, I felt a rush of the Holy Spirit. I wasn’t hoping for a change and therefore wasn’t expecting a change, but […]

The bald-headed guy

A couple of weeks ago in High Priests Group we had a lesson about making the temple a priority in our lives. We were discussing why it isn’t always a priority. One of the members tried to mention a talk he remembered and said: You know… what’s his name? The bald-headed guy… Of course he […]
