Witty Wednesday!

This past weekend was super special, with it being my brother's birthday and General Conference weekend. Chris seemed to really enjoy his special day...18, oh my goodness!! Seriously, I don't think I realize how old I am until his birthday comes rolling around, haha!

General Conference was even more amazing than I'd imagined it would be. I knew it was going to be a very spiritual experience...I just didn't realize how much of one it would be. My love for the gospel and for the Church has grown sooo much after listening to the speakers. I've been encouraged and inspired in so many ways. I can't get over the range of emotions I've felt over the last few days, minute, I'm quietly enjoying the scenery, letting everything sink in, and the next thing I know, I feel like I'm ready to run a race for the Lord, haha!

Anywho, here are just a few of the many wonderful gems I got out of this weekend...

"You must never underestimate the power of your righteous influence."
--Elaine S. Dalton

"Seen or unseen [angels] are always near."
--Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

"Come what may, and love it."
--Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

"You don't know everything, but you know enough."
--Elder Neil L. Andersen

"Meekness is not weakness."
--Elder Robert D. Hales

"Every cloud we see doesn't result in rain."
--Elder Quinten L. Cook

"Find joy in the journey--now."
--President Thomas S. Monson
