Conference Thought


"Every time in my life when I have chosen to delay following inspired counsel or decided that I was an exception, I came to know that I had put myself in harm's way. Every time that I have listened to the counsel of prophets, felt it confirmed in prayer, and then followed it, I have found that I moved toward safety. Along the path, I have found that the way had been prepared for me and the rough patches made smooth. God led me to safety along a path which was prepared with loving care, sometimes prepared long before." ~Elder Henry B. Eyring, May 1997 Ensign, p. 25

I'm so thankful for the chance to pause in my normal Sunday routine and to sit and listen to the apostles and prophets. They do know what our Father in Heaven has in store for us, and I know that He will lead us to safety. All we have to do is to listen and to follow.

Happy Conference weekend!

I loved conference this year! I need to re-read it though - the kids make it tough to hear everything :)

I hope the weather is good for you while visiting. Not sure if you will make a trip Waterton, but if you do, stop in. You know what house it is right? Coming from Waterton, just as you are leaving Leavitt, the house on the hill to the right with no stucco......would be fun to meet you.
