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 – Priesthood Session

Normally we go to the sub-sational dinner before the Priesthood Session of conference, but tonight we went out to dinner at a local Chinese food place instead. It was a buffet, so I ate way more than I should have, but it was good! President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A choir comprised of students from Institute […]

185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The baptism was beautiful this morning. My daughter was thrilled to be baptized and confirmed, and the turnout from the ward was great. The entire service was probably only about 40 minutes long, and then we had some light refreshments until about 11:30. We’re all back at home now to watch the first Sunday session. […]

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 Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, it’s over. It was quite good. I think my overall favourite session this time was the Priesthood Session. Each session had a talk I enjoyed, but that had more that I enjoyed in just the one session. Overall, here are the talks I particularly enjoyed: Jeffrey R Holland from Saturday Morning General Session Russell M […]

184th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

So, I’m at home now with my family. The kids went out to the backyard to shot a few baskets (I think it’s too cold for basketball, but I’m glad they got some fresh air) in between sessions. I’m interested to see/hear the statistical report this afternoon President Henry B Eyring conduct A combined choir […]

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 […]

My notes on the Work of Salvation broadcast

I’m sure many of you watched the Work of Salvation broadcast this past Sunday. It was a good broadcast, but I’d read so much “hype” about it online that I guess I was a little disappointed that there was nothing earth-shattering about what was shared. I acknowledge that is my fault for falling for the […]

My interview with Elder Echo Hawk and our new Stake Presidency

As mentioned before, this past weekend was our Stake Conference. Our previous Stake President, David P Homer, was called to be an Area Seventy (he told us on Sunday that he had been called in November and had to keep it a secret all this time) so we needed a new Stake President. We were […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, 10 hours are done (10 3/4 hours if you count The World Report). Usually there is a session that I love, and maybe a session that I find kind of dull. For this conference, there wasn’t one particular session that was my favourite. Each session had a speaker or two that I really enjoyed. This […]
