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 – Sunday Morning General Session

I say this each time we have General Conference, but I love the Sunday morning of General Conference. The session doesn’t start until noon, which gives us lots of time to relax. I got woken up at 6:30 by a call from work and was unable to get back to sleep, so that was unfortunate. […]

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, […]

185th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

We had a nice morning. We slept in a bit and after breakfast spent a couple of hours cleaning the house, and then the kids The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Press Forward, Saints President Henry B Eyring conducted. He opened by noting the passing of Boyd K Packer, L Tom Perry and Richard G Scott. […]

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 – Sunday Afternoon General Session

In between sessions we finished our Game of Life. Our daughter one, and she was quite excited. The rest of time was spent cleaning up a LEGO bomb that exploded in our playroom in the basement (or at least it looks like LEGO shrapnel everywhere!) Here we go ready for the last session… President Henry […]

184th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I think that conference Sunday are my two favourite Sundays in the year. I haven’t lived in an area where I go to Church in the afternoon, so for us to have the morning available is a real treat. We got up this morning, had toaster waffles, watched The Pirate Fairy (the latest Tinkerbell movie… […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

Wow! Wasn’t President Uchtdorf‘s talk this morning awesome?! Hopefully there is another awesome one this session. As I make my notes, I’m also following the #ldsconf tag on Twitter. As was expected, the hashtag was trending after the first session. In between sessions I watched The World Report, and then played some Mario Kart Wii […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

As mentioned in my Pre-conference notes, I had to watch this session at work. I got called out of my office at about 11:45, and didn’t get back to my desk until almost 12:30. I was surprised to note how anxious I was to get to my computer and watch conference. I felt like I […]
