OOOH man oh man. I don't even know where to start. First of, General Conference in the mish is so much more amazing than watching it at home! To make everything even awesomer (yes,I am aware that is not a word but I am lacking some vocabulary terms. Forgive me! haha) is that I watched the conference in Spanish! And I understand everything that they said! (Well, maybe almost all of it).
So here are my favorite things that I learned in the conference:
By Elder Von Keetch: I liked his talk a lot because it talks about keeping the commandments. Yes, a lot of us thinks that the commandments are barriers that hinders us from doing the things that we do. But you now what? Gods commandments are like baby fences. You know, those barriers that you put at the play pen so that babies wont wander around the house and hurt themselves. Its exactly like baby fences. Heavenly Father gave us commandments so that were not going to hurt ourselves. Those "barriers" are protection to keep us safe and happy. Because that what we really want, right? To be safe and happy :) Like it says in Mosiah 2:41. Its says, " And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it."
Then I also love what President Russell Nelson talked about. He talked about how us women, have a great influence in the church and the people around us. One thing I want to share. Alma 48:11. It says, "
11 And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man; he was a man of a perfect understanding; yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed; a man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country, and his brethren from bondage and slavery;
12 Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God, for the many privileges and blessings which he bestowed upon his people; a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.
13 Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ, and he had sworn with an oath to defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion, even to the loss of his blood. All of us should be like Moroni. My life goal is to be a Moroni and marry a Moroni HAHAHA! Yes, yes I know. The tag covers the heart. But I can start planning now, right?
Well my people of Zion. Let us work hard to build a better future for the generations to come!
With all the love that I can give,
