i believe we have a living Prophet today

i hope you are all enjoying General Conference as much as i am.
i wish we had General Conference every month. i feel so spiritually rejuvenated, don't you?

my skin is full of goosebumps after hearing the final hymn, We Thank Thee O God For a Prophet. i know that President Thomas S. Monson is our living Prophet today. how grateful i am for him and for that knowledge. and what a powerful sermon he gave just now. i especially love these words he gave at the conclusion of his talk:

"Our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, and though the rain may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love for our Heavenly Father and for our Savior will comfort and sustain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments. There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us.

Fear not, be of good cheer.
The future is as bright as your faith...
Heaven's blessing await us."

hope you're enjoying this bright, spiritual, lovely day.

Amen! Loved, loved, loved this morning session. In particular I could not contain myself during Elder Hollands talk. How can we ever complain again after understanding his words?
I am moved beyond words... and I hope I can change for the better.
I too felt such Love for President Monson and his sweet guidance for us. We are so blessed.
I am glad that you are having a wonderful Conference there.... but I miss you terribly... and also Mike and his kind ways.... and Ellie and her beautiful, smart spirit! We love you tons,

Marce, you are amazing that you could pay attention with Ellie. Josh is the most awesome baby but taking care of him and paying attention, doesn't work so well!

Love him! I love filling up my cup and how they seem to always be talking right to me, it's amazing!

My etsy finds were inspired by a few blogs... the necklace on giveaway today was very similar to the one I found, but made by someone different. I didn't even realize it was so similar! Fun stuff!
