George Albert Smith suffered from depression

Once again referring to Elder Holland’s talk from the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference, he mentioned that George Albert Smith suffered from depression. I’m fairly well versed in Church history, but didn’t realize how sever it was until I followed some links online. Apparently while an apostle he had a 3-year battle that at […]

Mormon Message about Stephanie Nielson

During the Saturday afternoon General Conference session, Elder Holland spoke about depression, and shared a touching story about a woman who had been in a plane accident. I’ve never heard this story before, but the Church has had a Mormon Message up for 3 years with the story of Stephanie Nielson. Rather than give you […]

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 […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it every conference… I have a hard enough time getting through 10 hours, how do the apostles and First Presidency make it through?!

180th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

Here we go… Wait, what’s up with the audio? I can hear the choir, but no voiceover, and nothing from President Eyring (who is conducting)… Phew! There is audio now. In general (and not because of the audio problem that has been resolved), I prefer the Move Networks plugin that the Church used to use […]

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 […]
