in review

We spent the weekend watching and listening to our church's General Conference. I learned so much and renewed my resolve to be better. A few of my favorite talks were:
  • Elder Hales - Debt and addiction and excess. "I love you" = 3 most important words. "We can't afford it" = 4 other loving words.
  • Sister Lifferth - Self discipline. Reverence and respect start at home.
  • President Monson - Perseverance
  • And then the choir sang "We Thank Thee Oh God for a Prophet" with a fantastic photo tribute to President Monson - WOW!
  • Elder Oaks - Entitlement is contrary to the teachings of Christ.
All the talks were great! Afterward, my parents came over for homemade pizza and our friends, the Greenes, brought us the most delicious lime pound cake with raspberry sauce. It was soooo good!
What were your favorite talks?

You picked some good ones. Loved Elder Holland's testimony and love for the Savior, beautiful and powerful.

I love to listen to Elder Holland. Always.

So will you post the pound cake recipe? Please please please? I bawled through most of conference. I guess because of pregnancy hormones.

Hilary,
I have asked for the pound cake recipe. As soon as I get it from my friend, I will share it, with her permission, of course.

I already knew who I would put down before I read the other comments. Unanimous! Elder Holland's was my favorite.

The pound cake sounds so yummy! I'll be waiting for that recipe. Also have similar favorites and a list of "needs to do better areas."

Elder Hales talk totally stood out to me too. I need some work in that area. And I loved President Monson's message of hope in the future.

I enjoyed Elder Ballard's talk. And because I was listening on the radio, I missed the photo tribute. Too bad.

I'm telling my daughter daily that "we can't afford it". She actually seems to understand and just let's it go at that.

Sarah said...

Gina,
you've got her trained well!

Great wrap-up of Conference talks! The pizza and dessert were delicioso! Thank you. I wish we had stayed for the scripture study. Our company wasn't even here when we returned. I sure love seeing you all!
