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 […]

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 […]

Canada-wide Stake Conference

I was going through some drafts that I had, and this one stuck out. Apparently 2 years ago we had a Canada-wide Stake Conference that was broadcast from Salt Lake City. Well, here we are 2 years later, and we have one this coming Sunday. I figured that I might as well post the notes […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it every conference… I have a hard enough time getting through 10 hours, how do the apostles and First Presidency make it through?! So, after 10 hours of General Conference have gone by, and I’ve had a few thoughts: I was surprised with the number of talks […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

We watched this last session in the comfort of our own home. Our oldest son (8 years old) watched some of it with us. President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Come, Rejoice Elder Lawrence E Corbridge offered the invocation The choir sang Lead, Kindly Light Elder L Tom Perry talked about […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I went to Church a little early today. I had to do an interview before the main broadcast. I went with my sons who sat and watched the Music and the Spoken Word broadcast while I was in the interview. By the time I was done my wife was there with my daughter, and we […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

As indicated in the write-up for the Saturday afternoon session, I watched that one at home. I had to be at the Church by 6:15 pm (Eastern time), so I left about halfway through Elder Scott’s address and picked up my father. We both had to be at the YM sub-sational which started at 7:00 […]

180th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

Here we go… Wait, what’s up with the audio? I can hear the choir, but no voiceover, and nothing from President Eyring (who is conducting)… Phew! There is audio now. In general (and not because of the audio problem that has been resolved), I prefer the Move Networks plugin that the Church used to use […]

Random 179th Annual General Conference notes

Now that General Conference is over, here are a few random thoughts/notes: best line of the conference (in my opinion) was when President Monson said that “your future is as bright as your faith”. That really puts things back on us Elder Andersen seemed very humble. I’ve read some grumblings on the Internet about how […]

179th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning Session

I ended up going to the Church this morning sans family for the first session. Two of our three kids are sick, and so my wife stayed home with them. I left a little early as I had an interview before. I also had an interview afterward. It was nice being able to refer to […]
