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!!
