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 Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again… I love General Conference Sunday! Normally I’m up at about 6 am, but this morning I slept past 7, and didn’t get out of bed until after 8. We had a nice breakfast of eggs, waffles, bagels, bacon, and sausage patties, then we played the Game […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

The family is gathered together and we are set to get started. Since my oldest is now 12, he is going to watch all of the sessions with us. The younger two will watch half an hour of each session, all of Sunday morning, and then President Monson’s conclusion on Sunday afternoon. Let’s get going… […]

184th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

I can’t believe that conference is almost over. We’re just about to start the last session. In between these two Sunday sessions we watched Angels in the Outfield. It probably isn’t the typical movie that we would watch on a Sunday, but my wife and I both have fond memories of it from when we […]

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… […]

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.┬áHere 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 […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another 6 months, another conference, another 10 hours (11 if you count The World Report). I think my favourite session was Saturday morning. President Uchtdorf’s talk inviting people to return was excellent. I personally know some people who that applies to. I hope that some how they get the message. I followed the #ldsconf […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the last session, we watched some YouTube videos about Stephanie Nielson. What a story… what an example of perseverance! Afterwards my kids played the game of Life and I had a bit of a nap. We’re settled in now to watch the last session… President Henry B Eyring conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I think that General Conference Sunday is one of the my favourite Sundays of the year. I love sleeping in a bit, having a relaxing breakfast, and then going for a walk with the family. The whole morning is just so peaceful! Yesterday was a good day. President Uchtdorf gave two great talks, Elder Holland […]

183rd Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

So here we sit in our family room getting ready for this session. As we usually do, we will have our kids watch the first half hour of every session, and then President Monson on Sunday morning. I’ve been reading some of the blog postings online about how people feel about General Conference. I find […]
