Oct 2016 General Conference: One week later

It’s been a week since LDS General Conference. It makes me sad that the world has so much going on that can push the messages from our lives so quickly. It takes a conscious effort to not let that happen. Of all the lessons that were shared, it’s these lines that have stuck with me the most:

“Let us remember that our children and grandchildren measure our love by how much devoted time we give them.”


“We engage all three members of the Godhead as we pray. “


“We torture ourselves needlessly by competing and comparing… If we must compare, let us compare how we were in the past to how we are today—and even to how we want to be in the future.”


“And the worst kind of sin is premeditated sin, where one says, “I can sin now and repent later.” I believe that this is a solemn mockery of the sacrifice and sufferings of Jesus Christ.”


“When an opportunity comes to share your thoughts about the gospel and the lessons of life, stop everything, sit down, and talk with your children and grandchildren.”


“Without sacrifice, a person may find it hard to forgive himself or herself, because of a lingering consciousness of something withheld.”
