Touched by GC

I look forward to two weekends every year. It is consistent and I can always plan on which weekends will bring this excitement. Maybe I look forward to eating treats out of our 72 hour kit. Or maybe I look forward to eating monkey bread (it should be ready soon!). Or maybe one of the biggest things I look forward to is staying up late on Saturday night eating Casey's favorite treat as he reports all of his notes. {This year he picked pecan pie. I made pecan pie bars and they were SO yummy! :) And I loved hearing his Priesthood Session report too--can't wait until I can read/ listen to Pres. Uchtdorf's talk!} Or maybe I just look forward being able to spend the whole weekend together as a family.

Although I love all of these things, they are definitely not the reason I look forward to General Conference so much! I love being able to hear messages that are intended for people of this time. I love knowing that these people speaking are really called of God and truly are inspired. I love finding tiny insights from listening to the talks of something I could use in my life. I love hearing answers to prayers. I love feeling the spirit testify that what is spoken is true.

I look forward to listening to conference over and over again as I drive. I am excited to be able to download the talks sooner now, instead of just having to wait to for the Ensign next month. I can't wait to make these words spoken become part of my life and part of who I am.

Yesterday as we were watching from our home, Casey had to go retrieve the box of Kleenexes. We will just blame that on pregnancy hormones because I don't ever remember crying during conference before. But I was so touched. It was exactly what I needed to hear. I can't wait for even more spiritual nourishment today! :)
