Conference was Awesome
Well Conference was Awesome. I wish I would watched Conference when I was home. There were a ton of Good Talks but my favorites were Elder Holland's and Elder Renlunds. All the talks were Awesome but those were my favorites.
Elder Renlund's talk that was all about how "He did it for me" The Atonement is so vast in that it covers everyone who has ever lived for all things that we have faced and will face but it is also so personal in that Christ knows how each and everyone of us feels in every moment of doubt, sorrow, pain and sin. He can comfort us in any situation that we are in because he has felt what we are feeling exactly. He loved us enough to do if for us so that we could experience the same joy as he has. As we grow closer to God we will realize how much we are unprofitable servants and see the love that he has for us and the more we will want to do. The more we will strive to follow him exactly.
Then Elder Holland's talk was amazing on how we need to hold fast to the spirit and the impressions that we receive from it when we are at places like conference or the Temple or at church. But My favorite quote from his talk is " The Lord blesses those who want to improve" We do not need to be perfect to receive the blessings but just like it says in Alma 32 if we no more have a desire to believe also if we have a desire to do good the Lord will Bless us. Sorry I did not have much time today but i'll talk more about conference next week!
Love Elder Slack
