As a convert to the church and a constant maker of mistakes, I often get discouraged about my imperfections. I get stuck in a negative thought, “oh you’ve made too many mistakes”,”you should have done better” or “remember that one time when you were less than nice to your husband, your kids, blah, blah, blah….”, I mean it goes on and on..and on! It holds me back from feeling close to my Heavenly Father.
Conference could not have come at a better time!
To be honest, I wasn’t all that prepared for conference. I mean, I knew it was coming up, but it had been a busy week before and let’s face it, with three kids to keep entertained, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to pay much attention. However,I am so grateful for general conference and for inspired leaders. Before I had even heard or read the talk by Elder Renlund, I saw the above quote posted on social media and I immediately knew that this was the message I needed to hear! After listening to the talk and later reading it I felt strengthened and hopeful. I have posted the link to Elder Renlund’s talk for those who would like to read it
So what about you? Did anyone else have a wonderful experience from conference? I would love to hear about your experience!
