How to be Right

For Family Home Evening each week, Mark and I sit down together and watch a Conference talk. We are nearly to the end of this last General Conference - which makes it clear that it's almost time for another set of talks! I am excited that it's coming up so quickly.

It's interesting to see Pres. Monson as the prophet -- because it's so clear that he is. He's always been a favorite of mine but now he is acting and speaking as our prophet. Pres. Monson is full of inspiration and wisdom and this little quote is one of my favorites - it's a short little statement of fact that, if we could remember it, would probably change many of our lives.
"Remember that ofttimes the wisdom of God appears as foolishness to men, but the greatest single lesson we can learn in mortality is that when God speaks and a man obeys, that man will always be right." ~Thomas S. Monson

Since I'm someone who likes to be right, I'd better start listening.

I also look forward to Conference. Just the whole mood of the weekend is fabulous! I also want to pick your brain sometime about primary help. My class is a bit out of control and I'm struggling. Any ideas?

I love that you and Mark watch conference talks for FHE. So many people just stop doing it once their kids are out of the house. You guys are awesome, and that is an awesome quote!
