Serious Sunday

What a great day it is today!


I get to remember what is important in life.  I get to listen to great men and woman whom I believe are inspired to remind me of life's greatest purpose and treasures!

I LOVE conference!

I do.  Not just because I don't have to get dressed up and high tail my way to church.

But because I truly love to listen to the messages.

It's crazy how a little neglect of my spirit gets my priorities out of whack so fast.

Anyway...don't want to spill my guts and depress everyone :)...It's just nice to be reminded that there is SOOOO much more beyond this life.  That because I know there is a Father in Heaven who loves ME so much that he prepared a way for me to live again with Him and my Family someday.  

I LOVE the Book of Mormon and the Bible...I learn best from other peoples experiences, successes and failures...so THANK goodness there are books written to help us in our day.

I completely believe that there is a prophet today that talks with Heavenly Father so that he may lead us...I love President Thomas S. Monson (I was bawling during his talk--way to reach in and grab my spirit!) and all the other prophets before him, especially Joseph Smith, who had the courage to restore the Gospel.

Because of these things...and the gospel in my life...I TRULY have been So blessed.  I have an incredible husband, the sweetest two kids...surrounded by extended family that makes me laugh and helps me when I cry...and incredible FRIENDS in REAL LIFE and in the BLOGGY world.

Love you guys,

Happy Sunday

Love,

Shelle

Thank you for your thoughts. I'm always curious to know what other people got out of conference because it always seems like they're always talking directly to me.
