General Conference Favorites


My favorite moments from the 182nd Annual General Conference:

Favorite Quotes

" 'You can't be right by doing wrong; you can't be wrong by doing right.' " ~Elder Soares quoting President Monson

" 'Don't judge me because I sin differently than you.' " ~President Uchtdorf (from a bumper sticker he saw)

"If a printing shop explodes, will it produce a dictionary?" ~Elder Nelson

Favorite Talks

Sister Esplin on teaching children. She gave very touching real-life examples.

Elder Holland on the parable of the laborers in the vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16). This parable has great meaning to me (read my post on it here), so I appreciated how enlightening and in depth his talk was.

Elder Wilson on proper priesthood usage. I especially liked his opening story about driving with his wife.


Favorite Musical Number

"Praise to the Lord, the Almighty" by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the Sunday morning session. That hymn is one of my favorites, and it gave me chills when MoTab sang it.

So I compiled my own list: Read gospel-related board books. They are short and introduce common scripture stories in a very simple manner. Read the scriptures. Elder Bednar said, "Youth of all ages, even infants, can and do respond to the distinctive spirit of the Book of Mormon. Children may not understand all of the words and stories, but they certainly can feel the 'familiar spirit' described by Isaiah (Isaiah 29:4; see also 2 Nephi 26:16)." Sing Primary songs together. There is no better way to invite the Spirit, teach basic gospel principles, and prepare your baby for Nursery and Primary. Sing interactive songs to get wiggle…

The Sacrament Prayers

We hear the sacrament prayers every week, but do we listen to the words and know the purpose of the prayers? I have broken down the blessing on the bread to help us better understand the sacrament, something I was advised to do in my patriarchal blessing.

O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy son, Jesus Christ,
First, we address Heavenly Father. Then we ask Him in humility and verify that we are doing so in Jesus's name, as we are commanded to do all things in His name (3 Nephi 27:7, 9).

to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it,
The Guide to the Scriptures on lds.org defines the words bless and sanctify as follows:
Bless: To confer divine favor upon someone. Anything contributing to true happiness, well-being, or prosperity is a blessing.
All blessings are based on eternal laws (D&C 130:20–21). Because God wants his children to find joy in life (2 Ne. 2:25), he grants blessings to them as a result of their obedience to hi…
