Jacob 6:12 — O be wise; what can I say more?
Wow! what a wonderful spiritual feast conference has been!!!! I am so excited for today that I can't hardly stand it! Yesturday was great, Elder Oaks and Elder Scott are both spot on. Both talks I felt like a sponge absorbing and now I can't wait for the printed version online in a few days so I can re-read and study them. And then priesthood session last night? Well, that was the best! I like to think as I distance myself from the sin and failures of the past, my spirit is breaking away a crust that has surrounded me and allowing me to bask in the joy of the spirit more fully. Thank you Heavenly Father! I was touched so many times yesterday by the spirit and often times it caught me off guard, sooo neat! So many great messages, so many great lessons, so much love from Heavenly Father to all of us! Such a renewed determination of hope and joy and faith.


My favorite talks    
"General Conference was really amazing this time around. It seemed to come alive to me in a way it never has before, probably because I've gotten some distance from my addictions and lies.

I gotta say that the Priesthood session had almost all of my favorite talks, and it was especially meaningful since it was my first time to actually attend a session in the Conference Center. Elder Eyering's talk on being prepared to give blessings was so strong! It really explained to me why it's so important to always be worthy of the priesthood.

I also liked Elder Yoon Hwan Choi's talk about reaching out to the youth. It reminded me of how much fun I had as a missionary in Northern Europe playing soccer and American football with young refugees from the Middle East. Those were good times..."

"In a decaying environment, the mind is the last redoubt of righteousness, and it must be preserved even amid bombardment by evil stimuli. Christ is competent to see us through, “for in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted” As promised, He will make either “a way to escape” or a way “to bear it”."

— Neal A. Maxwell
