Conference Recap

What a spectacular Conference it was. I had a headache on Saturday night from crying so hard during Richard G. Scott's talk. If I were to choose, I would have to say that he is my favorite. His closeness to the Spirit is palpable. I want to be like him.
Lots of words were said about families, and for that I was grateful. At this point in my life family is the thing that is at the forefront of my mind. I love that I have a family of my own to tend and nurture. BJ was terrified that the first three talks of the Saturday morning session were about having children. He knows I don't need much encouragement to speed the baby-making process along. More Pugmire babies will be in order eventually. I hope it is soon than later. BJ hopes it is the opposite. ;)
How grateful I am to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. How grateful I am to know of the truthfulness of His gospel.
