General Conference

As I have listened to the talks given by the Elders of the church, my heart has been touched. I love Conference and all the wonderful messages that are shared. It is a chance for me to reflect where I am at in life, and where I want to be. I am so grateful for the Restored Gospel and the part it plays in my life. How blessed we are to have such a wonderful organization, with God at its head. We are so blessed to have so many righteous and inspired men, to help direct this church. Every time we are privileged to hear their wonderful words of wisdom, I am given new convictions to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and neighbor.

As I was listening to the talks today, I was trying to think of a time when I knew the gospel was true. I couldn't think of one particular incidence, but I realized there has never been a time in my life when I have doubted the truthfulness of the gospel. I realized that I have always known and believed every aspect of the gospel. When our dear Prophet President Hinkley passed away, and Elder Monson was made the new president, I thought I would have a hard time making the adjustment. It seemed like no one would ever be as wonderful as Pres. Hinkley. Although Pres. Hinkley was truly an amazing prophet/man, Pres Monson is just as amazing. He is an inspired Prophet of God. He can do so much for our church, just as Pres. Hinkley has. I love and sustain our Prophet, President Monson, and look forward to the many years of his leadership and council. I hope that all of you were inspired and touched by this General Conference as I was.
