187th Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

Well, here we go again! I’m still not blogging regularly, but I do enjoy doing my General Conference notes. I’m working today, so I’ll have to do the first session at work, then the afternoon session at home. I think the boys are staying home tonight to have pizza and wings in our family room […]

Sister Linda K Burton conducted The choir made up of Young Women from stakes in Ogden, Huntsville, and Morgan Utah sang Arise, O Glorious Zion The invocation was offered by Denise P Lindberg The choir sang If I Listen with My Heart […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

It was a lovely conference and I was glad to be able to participate in it. The things that have been on my mind haven’t been solved, but I have definitely heard some things that will alter how I think about those things. As I watched President Monson come in before the last session, it […]

186th Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

I’m sitting here at work waiting for the first session. I haven’t watched the General Women’s Session myself, but my wife thought it was excellent. Her and my daughter went to watch it with my mother, and my daughter fell asleep almost instantly. I guess she didn’t find it too interesting 🙂 I would assume […]

185th Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, another conference has come and gone. I think my favourite talks of the conference were Elder Andersen’s talk on faith and President Uchtdorf’s talk about making our church experience more meaningful. Probably the most touching thing about conference was seeing President Monson struggle through his talk Sunday morning. He seemed to shrink physically before […]

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 […]

2012 Canada-wide Stake Conference

On Sunday, May 27, 2012 we had what appears to be a bi-annual Canada-wide Stake Conference. The Saturday portion of Stake Conference was still a local event, but the Sunday morning session was broadcast from one of the studios at the Conference Centre. In the morning while still at home, my 9-year-old son offered our […]

Principles From Prophets

I go for a 3-4 km walk every day at lunch. While I’m walking, I like to listen to podcasts, talks, etc. One that I’ve read and listened to is by President Monson. On September 15, 2009 he gave a BYU Devotional address called Principles From Prophets. I remember reading about it when it first […]

A couple of comments from Fast & Testimony Meeting recently

Since General Conference as at the beginning of April, the monthly Fast Sunday was on March 25. As is usually the case, there were some testimonies I found to be very touching, and others not so much. That isn’t meant to criticize anyone, it’s just the truth. I’m sure there were people who didn’t appreciate […]

“If It Feels Right…” – NY Times article that President Monson quoted

You may recall that President Monson quoted from a NY Times article during his Sunday morning address at General Conference. The article was by David Brooks. I haven’t really read much of his work, but I do hear him every week on NPR‘s All Things Considered (he’s a political analyst) and I enjoy hearing him. […]
