Before General Conference starts, I always wonder how I’m going to make it through. By the time it is done, I can’t believe how fast it has gone by. There were several talks that I really enjoyed, and lots to think about it. Here are a few random notes/thoughts:
- President Monson is a great story teller. The story he told Sunday morning was a simple story about leaving money in his pants pockets, but he made it last for 5 minutes and was suspenseful. He also seemed to be a little “wired”. It was fun to see.
- My favourite talks were probably from Saturday afternoon. I really enjoyed Elder Andersen’s talk about having children. He said that we don’t have children because we have time, he said that is what we’ve been given time for. I also really enjoyed Elder Ardern. He spoke about time management. He said the scales of time need to be correctly balanced.
- It was sad to see Elder Hales. I have no idea what is wrong with him, but I hope he is not suffering. President Monson’s remarks to “Bob” indicated he’s doing better. Let’s hope so!
- The Mormon Tabernacle Choir was fantastic as always
- Elder Cook’s Mormon connection to the Titanic was neat
