  1. This morning I though on something, since I was converted in Argentina when I was 12 years old, I asked myself on how many conferences I have participated? the answer is 56 ..what’s your number? Everyone has a favorite one, or favorite speaker…what’s yours?

  2. Checking in from Newcastle, UK! It’s 5pm and time for General Conference!!!

  3. Sonia, I go to Argentina once a year and have been to the BA temple. I lived there for a year in 1990. I have listened to 24 conferences, several of them in Portuguese when I lived in Brazil. Elder Maxwell may be my favorite, but I now liking Elder Uchtdorf almost as much.

  4. Elder Oaks on sacrifice: he is listing many of the things that active members do, and we don’t usually see that as a sacrifice. But I can tell you as an adult convert that there was a *lot* of sacrifice involved.

  5. I got a bit weepy when they released Sister Beck and her councelors. I love those women. I’m sure the next Gen RS Presidency will be great though.

  6. Pres. Uchtdorf’s talk on Sunday morning is amazing. Forgiveness, mercy, true tolerance and lack of judging. “Let us be known as people who have loved one to another.” “We must let go of our grievances.”

  7. Two very interesting comments so far in conference for Mormons of an intellectual bent: Elder Nelson condemns atheism by questioning the Big Bang as the only source of life. And Elder Christofferson appears to warn about too much intellectualizing the Church. More analysis in the days ahead.
