I am so thankful for the messages given at Conference. Actually I fell asleep during the Saturday afternoon session so I am so thankful the Church provides ways to watch conference online. I can listen while I work at my computer.

There were several talks that pierced my heart but none like the talk that Elder Kevin W. Pearson gave concerning Faith in Christ. What really hit home was his point that the doubt (opposite of faith) can come from Satan but can also be a habit or attitude that we can change. He listed six Destructive D's.
  1. Doubt
  2. Discouragement
  3. Distraction
  4. Diligence (Lack of)
  5. Disobedience
  6. Disbelief
So, just like everyone else I have some improvement to make that will hopefully make me feel better. We really need to attend temple every month and I need to focus on my blessings. President Monson's talk given Sunday afternoon made me feel like a whiner. Which I admit I tend to be. I really liked President Erying's talk as well. Good thing we have conference every 6 months to get us on the right track.


  1. That was my favorite talk too!! Loved it. I feel the same way, sometimes I am more of a Lamen or Lemual rather than a Nephi. I am also glad that I am not the only one that occasionally nods off during a session:)

  2. I haven't been reading blogs in awhile, so I am playing catch-up. I loved conference and we have the same favorite talks. It was so good to see you, thanks for squishing us in before church-you looked great and Owen was too cute in his Easter suit!
