Happy Easter, Happy Conference

When I was a young girl one of my favorite things to do was rearrange my room. I don't know why. But I was frequently found moving my bed, shelf and dresser into different positions. It took hours and must have driven my mother crazy [except for the fact that it was the only time i dusted]. One of the joys of blogging is I can 'rearrange' my blog wallpaper easily and whenever i want. It is far less sweaty and just as satisfying.

this is my favorite time of year. not because of spring, or Easter, or longer hours of daylight. I love it because of General Conference. My reasons are kind of selfish. as a mom i do a lot of giving to others. its great and i love it but often i find myself more expended than renewed because of the demands of nurturing my family. Then General Conference comes along and for two days i can sit in the comfort of my home [usually] and listen to leaders of the Church as they speak to my soul. I feel uplifted, strengthened, redirected, validated and purposeful. I am always thrilled when something that i have been thinking about is one of the topics. I am awed by the power of the spirit to carry the message to my heart. i feel so blessed for this opportunity and write it in big letters on our calendar. I want my family to know that weekend will be focused on Conference because I need it.

I hope you got to enjoy it too.
