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 – Priesthood Session

I’m sitting in our den with my father getting ready to watch the conference. We’ve got pizza, wings, chips, and pitas ready to go. I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to type with chicken wing sauce all over my fingers! 🙂 President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted A Priesthood choir made up of […]

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. Here 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 […]

True Shepherds – President Monson speaks about Home Teaching

I was surprised to hear President Monson speak about home teaching at the Priesthood session of General Conference. It isn’t that I think that home teaching isn’t important, it’s that I don’t remember the last time a President of the Church has addressed the topic directly. It has been mentioned in passing, or spoken about […]

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 – Priesthood Session

So, here I am with my father, sitting in our family room. This is weird! But I think I like it. The pizza and wings have been ordered and should be here mid-session. Like I mentioned earlier, I think we’ll do this in April as well, and then head back to the Church for when […]

“The Church You Want”

This past Friday I was away at Girls Camp held at the Thomas S Monson Recreation Camp and then spent the weekend at a cottage right around the corner from it. We attended Church in Peterborough, Ontario. I used to live in Peterborough (my brother left on his mission from there) so it was nice […]

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 […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the morning session of General Conference I watched The World Report (I like their new logo and theme). I then had a nap for about an hour. I awoke to some of the Bible videos being played. I haven`t seen them before, and they looked pretty good. Well, here we go with the final session… President […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The two General Conference Sundays have to be the best Sundays of the year! We can sleep in a bit, spent time together as a family, go for a walk, and listen to the beautiful music of Music and the Spoken Word together. This morning was particularly great as the weather was beautiful. Spring is […]
