*General Conference!

*Talking with some of you, I've found that many of us Mothers thoroughly enjoyed Elder Ballard's talk. I believe that many young mothers across the globe had tears in their eyes during his inspired words. I think as mothers we all feel so inadequate at times..you know when your kids are whining, complaining & fighting and you think to yourself.."What kind of mother am I?" These are issues he addressed so poignantly.

*Our house became silent when he said "Children...listen up. I'm going to talk to you for a moment..." He went on to ask them to clean up their toys, obey, be good & most importantly give your Mom's a hug. So of course by this time my kids are staring at me instead of the TV because of my loud sniffles & crying sounds. I also loved how he said "The Joy of Motherhood comes in moments.. Live in the Moment because they are fleeting." He also said every mother has times of joys & times of struggles.

If you didn't listen to his talk...do it by clicking here!

*I also had a reaffirming testimony of our dear prophet President Monson and his counselors. I have always loved all 3 of them, but this weekend my testimony grew by leaps and bounds of them. Funny how when that mantle is placed, these feelings are automatic. I know President Thomas Spencer Monson has all the keys and that he will do whatever he can to reassure us & prepare us for the coming of our Savior.

I was going to put a nice post of this same talk on my blog. Great talk. Although our kids couldn't figure out why we wanted them to listen. We couldn't even get them to be quiet let alone listen. Jeff was pretty quiet during it. It was something I needed to hear. I need to go read it again too and all the other ones we couldn't hear through screaming, talking, yelling voices!

Such a nice post Audra! I loved this general conference. It felt so weird to not hear Pres. Hinckley at the end though. Pres. Monson is such a great man and speaker. Truly men of God! You always put it so PERFECT!
