The Rest of the Story

This week I want to do a Conference Report. Whenever they have a sports tournament, they do a report. Well I'm doing the same thing with Conference.

FIrst up. Top 5 Talks.
1.Henry B. Eyring - Help Them On Their Way.
2.D Todd Christofferson - The Blessing of Scripture.
3.Dieter F. Uchtdorf - Continue in Patience.
4.Bradley D. Foster - Mother Told Me.
5.David A. Bednar - Watching with all Perseverance.

All of the talks were great, but these five spoke to me the most. i really enjoyed them all and am looking forward to reading them when I get next months Liahona. :)

Rookie of the Conference (The best talk by someone I had never heard before)

Bradley D Foster
I dont know why I liked his talk so much, but I did. I dont know if I considered myself a mamas boy before my mission but I sure do now; so maybe that is why I liked it so much.

Top 5 Lessons Learned
1.Teach your children the things of God.
2.We have more scripture than any other generation. USE IT!
3.Be a Rescuer for those who are lost.
4.Take comfort in the promises of God.
5.Turn to the Lord without delay. Especially in times of trial.

I think the general theme of the conference was teach our children. It's funy how it works out like that even though there are no assignments given. :)

Top 5 Jokes.
1. "He kissed me on the cheek. First date." Thomas S. Monson
2."But we don’t have to throw open the door, serve them tea and crumpets, and then tell them where the silverware is kept! (You shouldn’t be serving tea anyway.)" Jeffery R. Holland
3."Grandpa are you in there." Robert D. Hales
4."Man, what a pitcher." James B. Martino
5."Our trained toed friend had his foot in his mouth." Thomas S. Monson

I thought the whole conference had a lighter side to it. I like it like that. I felt President Monson was in a wonderful mood and it made things fun.

And Last but not least. MVP
And this year it goes the Dutch Bulldog. aka Jeffery R. Holland. He comes again with a spiritual smackdown about the terrible affects of pornography. You may be wondering why this talk was not in my top five well it's because it was in a league of its own. He taught pure doctrine while amusing us with whitty sayings like "True love, we are absolutely giddy about—as I am about Sister Holland; we shout it from the housetops, and occasionally from General Conference." and "Throw the rascals out."

Overall it was a great conference that I was pleased to watch. I'm excited for next months Liahona.
