182nd Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

A few random thoughts as the conference comes to an end:

  • I say this after each conference, and I think I will say it forever… I have a hard enough time staying awake for 10 hours, how do these men in their 70s and 80s?!?!
  • General Conference was fantastic. I always enjoy it, but there was something different this year. I’m not sure why, but I welcome it. I felt the Spirit through many of the talks, and loved the music.
  • We are so blessed to hear from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir regularly.
  • In between sessions on Sunday I watched The World Report. It’s always interesting. I like seeing some of the “behind the scenes” activities around the world.
  • I’m sure other goofy people have thought this before, but I noticed that Elder Malm offered the benediction of the Sunday Morning session. We have a dresser in one of our dressers from Ikea that is called Malm.
  • I can’t get over how great Elder Perry looks. He’s going to be 90 this year!
  • Before I die I hope to make it to Temple Square to hear the choir sing in person
  • More than half of births to American woman under 30 occur outside of marriage. Nearly half of marriages end in divorce.
  • Elder Ballard spoke powerfully to both male and female YSA about marriage
  • I’ve never heard of Elder Wilson before, but I really enjoyed his style (as well as substance)

It was a long, but enjoyable 10 hours. I’m grateful that we have prophets, seers, and revelators and other Church leaders who can help us feel the Spirit in this way.
