The LDS General Women's Meeting was last Saturday. It acts as sort of a kick off for the continuation of 5 more sessions next week, 4 for the general public, 1 reserved more specifically for males. Conference is like a refreshing renewal twice a year for me. I've always been a note taker so I decided to share my notes from this past session with you. Take note, (heeh heeh, punny!) these are my own personal notes, not direct quotes from those speaking. 

-The temple gives us the power to face life's adversities

- They were "prepared in a way which never had been known"

-Matthew 25 is a parable for temple preparation

-Preparedness comes drop by drop

-Consistent and diligent 

-Only the home can compare to the sacredness of the temple

-Can we feel the spirit in our apartment?

-Where much is required, much much more will be given

-Look up "diligent" in Preach My Gospel Christlike Attributes

-The temple should be much more than a one time event

-Above all, WE are His

-Covenants with God help us to know who we really are

-Peace. Power. Protection. all come from the temple

-For them, their covenants were everything.

-"A remarkable connection to heaven." Can people say that about me?

-How can I make temple & family history a bigger part of my life?

-Every mighty change of heart matters to the Lord

-We should be consistently adding to our truth & light and then share that truth & light with those around us

-We need more distinctive & influential voices from women that are willing to speak out

-If you want to give light to others, you have to GLOW yourself!

-We must go to the source of light

-Truth shineth

-He was my only hope

-A mother can influence more than anyone else in any other relationship

-Memorize The Living Christ

-You are always a child of God. You will never lose that title

-God sent us to prepare for a great future

-It takes more than a "child of God" membership card to claim the ultimate blessings

-Live the gospel joyfully with all our heart.

-Do we really need to follow ALL of God's commandments? I think God knows something we don't

-The commandments aren't life hacks from a blog or a quote on a Pinterest board, they are the road to exaltation

-God knows of your successes, even your smallest ones

-Your dress size does not change your worht

-Live the gospel joyfully and you will discover your best self
