Sunday’s are the best day of the week.
I truly love them so much.
I get to go to Church! I get to see my ward members!
I get to pray, partake of the Sacrament, and learn of Jesus Christ!
I also get to spend time with Brady at church too.
Sundays are always peaceful, calm and happy.
They are usually filled with a lot of family time
which is never a bad thing.
I believe the week begins on a Sunday,
though most people would said Monday.
I hate Mondays.
Anyway, I made a graphic on my phone last week.
I wrote the lyrics down of the first verse of my favorite Sacrament song,
“As Now We Take the Sacrament.” It’s the most beautiful song!
I am grateful for Sundays, Jesus Christ, my husband,
and resting on the 7th day. God is good.
Brady has been substitute teaching a Sunday school class for the youth. Our ward put on a special marriage & family class and invited any adults who were interested. The marriage class was 8 weeks long, and the family class was an additional 8 weeks long. Brady subbed for 16 weeks and boy did I miss him!! I love Sunday school but sitting alone makes me sad. Haha, I love being with Brady as much as I can be these days and I knew it would be overwith soon but it felt like forever!!
Brady’s done now and I’m so glad to have my husband back. Church is much better when he’s there with me :) Also, I got this new dress ^^^ and I love it. It’s long sleeve but it’s so comfy!! We also decided to walk to Church this day and the heels I wore made my feet hurt. It was too beautiful outside to not walk anyway.
Brady and I finished reading the Book of Mormon! We kind of started reading when we first got married. Then we worked on it here and there throughout the last four years. I can’t believe we finally finished it! :) I’m so proud of us. It’s a long book. The only long book I’ve ever read (fat books intimidate me), and now we’re going to be reading in the Old Testament! I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much great!
I didn’t really care about school/seminary when I was in 10th grade and that is the year we studied the Old Testament, so it’s nice to actually care this time! ;) Haha Brady and I love spending this time together, and sometimes we’ll ask each other questions or what we liked most about the recent chapter we just read. It’s amazing how the Holy Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Temple all connect. It’s amazing and I love it so much!!
Twice a year, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gather for a meeting called General Conference. We watch, and listen to our Prophet, his counselors, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and many other General Authorities of the Church. They give amazing talks, and it’s always a great time of year! Many members meet inside the General Conference Center if they have tickets, and many members watch live online, on TV, or the radio from wherever they are! I’ve been blessed to be able to attend General Conference in the General Conference Center many times but I also love staying home and watching it on TV!
Because of his health, our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, stayed home to watch General Conference and we missed seeing him on the stand! We also had an Apostle of the Quorum of the Twelve absent from General Conference for his health as well. This Apostle was Elder Robert D. Hales, and sadly, he passed away just 15 minutes after the first session of General Conference ended. We will miss him dearly and we thank him for his incredible service!!
Brady and I stayed home together and it was really nice. I took a ton of photos of Scooter so, bear with me. We heard some amazing talks and you can watch/listen/read all of them by click here! I promise you won’t regret it! Hearing the words of our leaders in such a difficult time is so comforting. Our Father in Heaven is truly watching over us and I know that because of the testimonies shared by our leaders. I made some conference quotes for the General Women’s session of conference so I’ll definitely be making some for the remaining sessions. Be on the lookout! Also, in the title of my post is the hashtag, #ldsconf. This is the official hashtag the LDS Church uses for their social media during General Conference. You can view the hashtag on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and probably many more websites!
We were out with Brady’s mom and step-dad when the first session was going so I missed that. I missed the second session because I had to get ready for work, so I’ll be catching up on the Saturday session’s today! I’m so excited :)
I have had many notebooks over the years for General Conference. I just recently purchased the Conference Notes notebook from Deseret Book before this fall’s session of #ldsconf. They have tiny ones, and then ones about the size of my hand. They are the PERFECT little notebook to write down thoughts, quotes from the talks and it just is so perfect. Haha, I’m definitely getting more of these for next conference!!
What did you love most about General Conference? What was your favorite talk?
