General Conference was last weekend.
(Don’t know what that is? Skip to the end of the post.)
It’s one of my favorite weekends of the year because it always seems to come at the perfect time. In the fall, it literally saved my life. My super cute SIL explains this a little more over on her blog.
Even though we aren’t in crisis at my house right now, there were profound moments during conference that stuck out–moments I needed that I didn’t even know that I needed!
There is always one talk that I just cannot take enough notes on and I just end up putting a star next to it to remind me to read and study it later. This time, it was President Uchtdorf. His talk, for me, was on creating joy and light even when you feel like darkness surrounds you. It was so amazing.
I loved how Elder Anderson recognized blogs and other forms of social media. Thanks for the shout out!
And although Elder Clayton said that both parents need to participate in putting the children to bed every night (something that is usually Mr. R’s doing), I thought his talk on how to have a priceless marriage was powerful and just what our world needs. (After the bedtime routine remark, I sheepishly looked at my husband who proclaimed, “REBUKED!” LOL He is awesome.)
*Don’t miss my post on Friday featuring Mr. R’s grandmother’s CHUNKY NON-CLAMMY CLAM CHOWDER that we have every General Conference. It’s a Redfern Family Tradition!
What is General Conference?
In our church we believe in continuing revelation–meaning we know that God has not stopped talking to his children.
There is a living prophet on the earth today. Did you know? His name is Thomas Monson. Twice a year, we LDS people gather with our families and listen to the prophet’s guidance and counsel. Some gather at the Conference Center in Salt Lake. Some in churches in their area. Some watch it online. Some are lucky enough to watch it at home on TV like us. It never disappoints.
