Conference Weekend

8:58 AM

We had a busy and wonderful conference weekend!

We kicked off the day on Friday by doing laundry, and I got to go to dinner with some of my closest friends from HS. It was awesome to get together and catch up over dinner, hear all about what we were all up to and laugh about old times. I hadn't realized how much I needed it!

Randy went and saw a movie with his brother so the rest of my night was full of relaxing and Netflix movies - exactly what I needed after a busy two days of writing conferences for work!

Saturday we woke up early and had some breakfast before heading to Kaysville for conference weekend! We loved hanging out with family and watching conference. My mom had treats with the name of every apostle and First Presidency member, and when they spoke we got to open that treat! It was a fun way to make conference even more exciting. We spent time with Randy's family making sushi and watching more sessions. During the Priesthood session my mom and I did some shopping and we ate late night nachos.

Sunday was wonderful and filled with even more family! We ate a delicious lunch and went on a walk, saw my grandparents, and then went back to Randy's for some time with our niece. It was truly a wonderful weekend.

And conference. Can I just...WOW.

Every single talk impacted me and was so beautiful. I left there with a million things running in my mind of what to start doing, who to start being, and just this peace that my life is on the course it is supposed to be. It was seriously one of the most inspirational conferences I've ever listened to, and several of those sweet talks brought me to tears thinking "How did he know I needed to hear that?"

Life is messy and feels uncontrollable sometimes. But as we have faith and trust not in our own ability, but in God and His ability to help us, we'll be OK. Everything won't be easy, but it will always work out.

I was also struck with how important it is to remember that each of the apostles are speaking about what Heavenly Father wants them to. They work and pray SO HARD to know exactly what they are supposed to say. No, these are men and they aren't perfect. But when they are sharing revelation over the pulpit, it's God's words. I sustain these men and believe and follow what they tell me. And if for some crazy reason something they say is wrong, I know that God will look on my heart and see that I tried to follow His servants. And that's what He has commanded me to do.

Sunday after family time we saw our friends for a bit and it was fun to say hey to everyone! We are so lucky to have family and friends that we get to spend so much time with.

I'm just feeling so blessed and lucky and inspired today. The tragedy that happened in Las Vegas has made me sick, but I am so grateful I heard messages of hope and love before it. There is always hope, there is a God who loves us and has a plan. Horrible people will have to answer for what they have done, and God will make everything right. I'm praying for those who were affected and for everyone in Las Vegas today.
