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 […]

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 Apostle Song – revised with Elder Andersen

Random 179th Annual General Conference notes

Now that General Conference is over, here are a few random thoughts/notes: best line of the conference (in my opinion) was when President Monson said that “your future is as bright as your faith”. That really puts things back on us Elder Andersen seemed very humble. I’ve read some grumblings on the Internet about how […]

179th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning Session

I ended up going to the Church this morning sans family for the first session. Two of our three kids are sick, and so my wife stayed home with them. I left a little early as I had an interview before. I also had an interview afterward. It was nice being able to refer to […]
