General Conference

General Conference. I loved all of the talks and for some reason I really enjoyed sitting on my bum for 10 hours...haha. I'm proud to say I never fell asleep and I was pretty proud of myself. President Mehr gave us a challenge to listen to the spirit as we watched conference. I took the challenge and when I was listening to what the Lord wanted me to hear, I was amazed on what I was receiving. After every talk I just felt like they were all talking to me and that I was being edified by the spirit. I loved all the talks, I didn't have a favorite, because they all touched me in a very special, and spiritual way. I did realize something very scary though. My thought was that Satan will be working double time and putting it into overdrive, on bringing souls into misery. I really want you all to focus on the teaching of the past conference so that you will be strengthened and you won't be caught in Satan's grasp. Robert D. Hales even said that we need to listen and then study the teachings after so we won't fall hard.

Elder Petersen and Elder Hill reserved seats for their fathers at the Priesthood Session. Since they were able to watch it live, their dads truly were with them in spirit.
