178th General Conference April 2008

Well Conference just got over, i really enjoyed it, to be quite honest this was the first time.. i have watched all sessions. The Sustaining of our dear Prophet Thomas S. Monson and the solemn assembly was so powerfull! Each talk that was given was delivered with the full force of the spirit. President Monson's talk at the end of the Sunday afternoon session touched me a lot. You can tell how much he loves his wife and how gratefull and dedicated he is to her. All this you can tell just by the reverence in which he places her name. He always has the power to make us laugh especially today when he mentioned his wifes note to the family stating "dont let daddy touch the microwave, stove, dishwasher.. etc" Next his story of how his ancestor's mission to Sweden was the cause for much joy and happiness and led to the converting of President Monson's future wifes family. That definatly struck me in the heart since im preparing to serve a mission. An experience like that is a major Testimony booster. I was very glad he shared that story with us. Well everything about conference was great. this one will probably be one that sticks in my mind forever and ever.

I agree that it was a testimony builder! It makes me want to be a better person and example to others. Conference was really good and it was the first time in a long time that I WATCHED every session. Thanks for your awesome friendship! :) It means a lot to me.

Conference is really amazing. There is something wonderful about anticipating it too. I believe a lot of the excitement that builds before it and continues to enter our minds after is the realization that these men are men of God. They are His servents and speak for Him. The coucil they give us is relavent to us today; don't wait until tomorrow, follow their council today. President Monson's final invitation was to follow the council that we had been given in the past two days, and since he is the Lord's prophet on the earth today I hope we all will! Chris- you're wonderful and I can tell you are going to be a great mish! Love you man!
