Yep ... they saved the best til last for the morning session of General Conference ... Elder Eyring! Not only do I love to hear this humble man speak but I enjoy reading his talks over and over again. I always find something new in the same talk I read over several times. I loved Elder Hales talk too!
It's soooo nice laying around the house ... not doing a thing ... no makeup on ... waiting for another session of General Conference! I shopped for weekly groceries last night so I wouldn't have to go out of the house today. Nice ... very nice!
Priesthood session tonight .... home alone. Guess I'll go over and visit Mom while the guys are gone. Reese is staying overnight and then having his friend over for dinner tomorrow. We're meeting her for the first time. This should be interesting. I can't wait to meet her! Returned missionary even!!
Oops ... Nat ... if I spelled Abigail's name wrong on my blog I must have spelled it wrong on my geneology sheet. Yep ... only I spelled it Abbigal. I'll correct it so I'll get it right next time.
Back to afternoon conference in a few minutes....!
Elder Eyring is My Favorite Speaker!
Well ... I'm just an ordinary granny with 28 beautiful grandkids, 7 fabulous children, and 1 fantastic husband! My fantastic husband and I met while both serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, in the Gulf States Mission. This mission included Mississippi, Louisiana, part of Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. While in the mission field we were committed to the service of the Lord and of course no dating was involved. But two dates after our missions we were engaged and married two months later. Life has been wonderful with my Lynn! While raising our 7 children I helped supplement our income by teaching vocal lessons, babysitting, and doing hair, all in the comfort of my home. I'm currently employed at World Joy, a nonprofit organization improving health and education in the Atiwa District of Ghana, Africa. Now, we have been called to serve as full time Public Affair Specialists for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Africa South East Area, living in Johannesburg, South Africa for 23 months. We are beyond excited since we will have each other as full-time companions 24/7. It REALLY is a wonderful life!
