General Conference

We are so lucky to be able to listen to General Conference twice a year. This one was even more special because of the Solemn Assembly on Saturday morning. We only had two tickets to that session, so my dad took my 14-year-old brother, Christian. It was such a neat experience for him to be one of the few Aaronic Priesthood holders there in the Conference Center to stand and sustain our prophet, Thomas S. Monson. It was special at home, too, for all of us—Relief Society members, Young Women and primary children—to likewise stand and sustain President Monson. Matt & I feel such love and gratitude for him and the position he holds. What a blessing to know that the Lord guides this Church and that we are led by a true prophet of God.
The rest of Conference was equally uplifting, with many talks being just what we needed to hear. Again, it is such a blessing to be able to listen to the words of the Lord’s servants, and to be able to study them in the months following. General Conference is always such a treasure and we are so grateful for it!
