Re: General Conference - April 2015

Jose Teixeira of the Seventy is next. This talk had some good focus on Christ, but the primary mission was discussing online habits, encouraging members to use their online time to interact with the Church's online presence (and also to put away your electronic devices and take a break for once, whi...

Re: General Conference - April 2015

Huh. So. The Primary general president Rosemary Wixom started her talk by telling a story of a sister who became less active while trying to figure out what she believed; the sister read a book about Mother Teresa and faith. "She can focus on the truths she did believe, and let those truths fill her...

Re: General Conference - April 2015

Pres. Monson looks so much older. But he's just as good a speaker now as he was before. He mentions that this conference marks seven years since he was sustained a prophet. I also love his message of peace like Ray mentioned above; his line about going to the temple to find peace stood out to me par...

Re: Article about dissenting votes

Well, since I was in the center and could kind of hear where the shouts were coming from, I can guarantee no one on the stand would have seen the dissenters if they had just raised their hands. There was at least one on the higher balcony in my area, and everyone looks like a tiny ant up there. I wa...

Re: Happy Spring

Our valley is so closed in by mountains and elevation that our lilacs haven't quite decided to come out, even while the fruit trees are blooming like crazy. Thanks for the lovely picture and the wishes. Happy Easter springtime to everyone! :D

Re: General Conference - April 2015

Good lord, I am bringing many copies of Uchtdorf's talk with me on my mission. Hopefully you are going to a mission that uses iPads! I have a friend who's ex works in the IT security department of the Church. He's told her a few times that he wishes the Church would trust their missionaries more, b...

Re: General Conference - April 2015

Anyway, finally have a moment to sit on my phone again. Agreed that Saturday afternoon had some excellent moments that I personally enjoyed, and those moments for me came from the three Seventies who talked. I loved the one about saints and sinners and trying. That part in Cook's talk you all mentio...

Re: General Conference - April 2015

...Also talks about how husbands and wives are equal but have different roles, which is very Proclamation-sounding... I'm listening on an audio only feed that drops from time to time so I miss who says what but one talk had one blurb that I felt stood up against traditional family roles in declarin...
