187th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another conference has come and gone. I think I enjoyed this one more than I have many recent ones. There were a couple of talks (at least) in every session that I really enjoyed. These included: Saturday Morning General Session M Joseph Brough – Families are a care package from God Dale G Renlund […]

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, […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

Here we go ready for the last session… President Henry […]

I’ve been reading some of the blog postings online about how people feel about General Conference. I find […]

Do you know how to receive revelation? Part 3 (final part)

As mentioned previously, the May topic for Come, Follow Me is on Prophets and Revelation. I spent two weeks discussing the ideas in the “How do I receive personal revelation?” topic. I thought the talks by Richard G Scott and David A Bednar gave some good information. Here are some quotes: Richard G. Scott, “How […]

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 […]
