Excellent Conference

by Marsha Ward

I have enjoyed the spiritual feast of this weekend. President Monson's announcement of five new temples is getting a lot of comment on the blogosphere, as I'm sure it is among families and Church units and friends who reside in the areas where they will be built. Imagine the jubilant phone calls and emails. Greater Kansas City and Rome are spectacular, but no less welcome are Calgary, Cordoba, and Philadelphia. What blessings will come!

I loved so many quotes and sterling teachings.

Elder Anderson: "You don't know everything, but you know enough--to keep the commandments."

Elder Oaks' charge to priests to speak slowly and distinctly when officiating over sacred emblems.

President Uchtdorf's story of his mother's faith, hope and prayer that resulted in finding her precious children again.

Elder Wirthlin's quote (again, from his mother): "Come what may, and love it!"

President Eyring's emotional and heart-felt delivery.

Elder Nelson's straight talk on Celestial Marriage.

I'm looking forward to postings of the talks so I can savor them again, and to receiving my Conference DVD.


  1. I loved the conference talks today! I felt so much love and concern from our leaders. I look forward to watching and reading them again, as well!

  2. Yes Rome is rather exciting. I loved the way his eyes twinkled when he announced it and then waited for the buzz.
