We had the very awesome opportunity to attend the Saturday session of General Conference. It was an incredible moment. I have attended conference before, but never in the conference center, and never with my boys. When they were born I made a goal to take them to conference when they were twelve. I am grateful I was able to fulfill my goal.
When we arrived early Saturday morning, I could feel the Spirit so strong. Everything I looked at, heard, or touched brought a tear to my eye. We watched the Mormon Tabernacle Choir practice and rehearse the songs they were going to preform. That was amazing. We looked around the conference center and admired it's beauty, we watched as people filled the seats, we talked as a family about what we were going to see and here, THEN, the prophet walked in and I lost it. The spirit was so strong, and a rush of emotions flooded through me. I couldn't hardely contain myself. I was looking at the prophet. I could feel his love and the love of our Savior as he walked to his seat. I will never be able to beat that feeling. I am grateful that I had this opportunity, and that I could share it with the three people I love most, Grant, Jayce, and Alek.
I am so grateful for President Monson, President Uchdorf, and President Eyering and for their faith, and willingness to do the Lords will. I am grateful to live in Utah where I can attend conference. I am grateful for the opportunity for my boys to be able to see the prophet, to hear him in person, and to be able to feel how much he loves them.
Attending conference was an overwhelming experience, one I can't put words to. I wish I could record my feelings and post them. Then you would be able to see how blessed, and grateful I feel.
