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 […]

187th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

So, I’m home from work now and the family is gathered in our living room ready to watch the afternoon session. President Henry B Eyring conducted. NOTE: President Thomas S Monson was NOT in attendance, but they did not announce it. A family choir made up of members from the stakes in Tremonton, Garland and […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

We went to the chapel tonight to watch the broadcast. It is my middle child/youngest son’s first time at conference. There was a bit of a social beforehand where we could have subs and chips. Afterwards we went to Boston Pizza for more food. It’s a great tradition! President Henry B Eyring conducted A choir […]

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 – Saturday Morning General Session

It’s a cold, rainy day where I live, so it’s a great day to be inside. Here we go… the first session out of five (six if you could the women’s meeting last weekend). I’m sitting at work with two laptops in front of me. One is the full-screen video of the session, and the other […]

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 […]
