conference weekend

"Do not wait to see the rainbow to thank God. Thank him for the rain." 
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Conference weekend is honestly my favorite weekend. I love hearing the inspiring and uplifting words from the prophet and apostles called from God. A spiritual boost to get me through the next six months, until we all meet again for another General Conference. 

This General Conference weekend was special because I got to visit home and I actually had the chance to go to the Conference Center for the Saturday afternoon session with my best friend (that is leaving to serve the people of Hungry in 44 days) sobbing    seriously how lucky are the people of Hungry? SO LUCKY. Side note- today I am feeling extra grateful because almost all of my best friends will be serving missions. Although it is hard to say goodbye to them for 18-24 months, they are the greatest examples to me. Heavenly Father truly has blessed me with the GREATEST friends in the whole wide world.

I was spiritually fed this weekend and I would like to share some things that really stuck out to me this weekend.

  • Your faith is always safe in The Lords hands. -Russel M. Nelson
