Ok I have a second to tell you about my weekend!
It was General Conference weekend. General Conference is when the leaders of my church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, speak to us. We believe that there is still a prophet on the earth today, just like Adam, Moses, and Abraham. And he has Twelve Apostles, just as Christ did when he set up His church on the Earth. All of those men spoke to us and told us what God wanted us to hear. Needless to say, it was amazing.
There were 4 two-hour sessions, beginning on Saturday Morning.
I watched the first with my roommates, my brother, and his roommates. The boys so nicely provided breakfast!
In between sessions we headed to the park to play some Frisbee golf! It was my first experience and I totally loved it! [Don't ask about my score though...]
After the second session, my big brother, my little brother, and I drove up to Bountiful to spend the night at our aunt’s house. Of course, the boy’s left immediately for the Priesthood Session of conference. So, naturally, I watched a chick flick and Gilmore Girls.
Sunday was again more conference! We ate breakfast and watch the first session with my aunt, then headed to Salt Lake City to attend the last session in the Conference Center. My brother’s girlfriend joined us.
[note the difference in attire from Saturday to Sunday. Thank you, Utah weather.]
It was so amazing! We were so close to the prophet!
"We thank Thee, oh God, for a prophet
to guide us in these latter-days"
Hooray for conference! Next month it comes out in the Ensign magazine and I can read it all again!
Conference weekend is really the BEST weekend.
