I look forward every year to General Conference Weekend. For those of you who do not know what that is, the first weekend of October and April, our church has what we call General Conference. There are six sessions, one the week before for the women, then two on Saturday for everyone, one Saturday night for just the men and then two on Sunday for everyone. Our church leaders speak to us from Salt Lake and it is broadcast all over the world in hundreds of languages. I love hearing the messages from our leaders and our beloved Prophet. It is also nice to watch church in your pj's on tv twice a year!
With kids, it is hard to be able to watch every session, so we usually just get the Sunday morning one. But with me having had surgery this week and not really able to do anything, I thought we would try. And wouldn't you know, we did it! We watched every single session of conference! After the second one ended on Saturday Kirsten said "another one, another one!" She was disappointed that she had to wait until Sunday.
Somehow Jeremy and Kirsten even managed to get our garden planted in between session on Saturday. They planted tomatoes, peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, green onions, lettuce, carrots, watermelon and zucchini. He is truly amazing!
Jeremy even made it to the Priesthood Session Saturday night at the Stake Center. I still cannot lift Katie, so my dad and Patty came over to help me with the girls. Kirsten loved having Grandma give her a bath, and they helped me get the girls to bed. Thank you so much!!!
Of course, the girls did not sit perfectly still, but they were surprisingly good.
Katie loved sitting on her piano while she listened.
After conference ended tonight, I asked Kirsten what she learned. She told me "The Holy Ghost told my heart that it was all true." So I guess she did pay attention some!
I can hardly wait to get the printed copy of all the talks so that I can study them more in depth. I am so thankful to a merciful Heavenly Father for allowing me to be spiritually re-charged this weekend.
