Part 2

Side note: A few hours after I posted the message below, my bishop called and asked me to speak in Sacrament Meeting about how conference impacted me and my family. I was glad I had been listening!

I was also touched that the Spirit already had me thinking along these lines. I am excited for the opportunity to study conference again so quickly and remember the many many things that effected me.

One that I forgot to mention earlier was Joseph B Wirthlin's talk about love and charity. It was so touching to see him working so hard just to stay standing. I knew his message must be important for us to hear if he struggled so hard to stay and finish it! Even more moving was to see his fellow apostle, Elder Nelson literally holding him up by the belt and arm so he could finish! They were a visual aide for his message.

"That is an example of the pure love of Christ. Sometimes the greatest love is not found in the dramatic scenes that poets and writers immortalize. Often, the greatest manifestations of love are the simple acts of kindness and caring we extend to those we meet along the path of life.

"Love is the beginning, the middle, and the end of the pathway of discipleship. It comforts, counsels, cures, and consoles. It leads us through valleys of darkness and through the veil of death. In the end love leads us to the glory and grandeur of eternal life."

Take a few minutes and re-read your favorite talk today!

I haven't spoken for a few months, and this is a rather easy topic. It should be fine. I always feel bad for the people in the audience who have to listen to me though!
