"The future is as bright as our faith"


Wow. What an amazing general conference! My heart is so full of gratitude. I love this church with all my heart. I love how this conference was full of words of hope, especially in such hard times. My favorite quote from the prophet was "The future is as bright as our faith" What an amazing quote. Faith in our lord Jesus Christ is what will get us through hard times. There can be nothing in this world that can defeat us. What an amazing example that lady was who lost her husband, then her four kids and found happiness through Christ. The lord will never leave us comfortless. I know that. Steven E. Snow had great council. I loved when he talked about how it is important to be happy to overcome change. He also specifically said Divorce is a type of change that we don't expect. I felt this conference had so many things that I needed to hear. I love that he said Face unexpected challenges, Move forward and get on with your life. What wonderful council from the lord. The prophet and counselors are true men of god! How amazing that we get to listen to them twice a year and take their advice and live it!
