This Little Miggy Stayed Home: Conference Week!

Conference Week!

This is ridiculous.  I'm having a hard time letting go of my Gilmore Girls.  I had break-ups that I got over quicker than this.  It's my little TV family, my "me time" activity, my escape window into another universe and I'm sad...I don't want it to go away.  I always felt like I related to Loreli and this is just one more way I consider us alike--our sentimental side, our propensity to hold on to the past, our dislike of change and always wanting things to stay the same.  What's that?  Am I comparing myself to a TV character, you ask?  Why yes.  Yes I am.  Don't hate. (And quit frontin' while you're at it).  

Anywho, to help me past this little GG break-up I've decided to do a week long tribute to Conference Weekend!  Yay!  I have to say I look forward to General Conference every October and April.  Now that I'm a mom and in charge of my own household I really want Conference to be an exciting and celebratory weekend for our little family.  (If you're not LDS you may not be familiar with Conference, but I've already told you about it here.)  So just to get myself and other excited about GC, I'd like to post some favorite talks from past Conferences.  Whether you're Mormon or not, these talks are well worth the listen.  You can learn more about our beliefs, but I also think you'll find good life lessons in general.  They're not too long--usually between 10 and 20 minutes in length.  

The first talk I'd like to spotlight is entitled "Becoming Instruments in the Hands of God" by Don R. Clark( and is only about 9 minutes long).  Brother Clark isn't the most recognizable speaker, but I never grow tired of listening to this talk.  I invite you to take a minute and listen here


  1. didn't you love uchtdorf's talk last weekend? I thought for sure you would love it as much as I did.

    I thought it was incredible

  2. Yes I did...I LOVED it. However, I also found myself sort of in the middle of a daze when I realized what he was saying and talking about, so I've been meaning to go back and listen more attentively. But yes I LOVED it and had never heard someone speak about creating in that way before. It was awesome.

  3. I LOVE this talk by Pres. Clark (he's pres. clark to me b/c he was my stake president when I was in YW.) I really love this talk and I have quoted it many times... I have even adopted his idea of writing down thoughts and ideas that pop into my head hoping I can help someone. very useful when I was RSP. Anyway, thanks for the reminder!
