Angela shared what the Sabbath day means to their family.  “Keeping the sabbath day holy as a family is joy. We go to church to renew our covenant with the Lord. After church we have dinner together and watch a devotional on the BYU Channel . Sometimes our boys will fall asleep on the carpet watching this. Since there is no homework there is less stress and we have a relaxed environment. Most of the time we go to bed early to prepare us for the upcoming week. There is always a sense of calm when we keep the Sabbath day holy, and enjoy and plan to continue practicing it.”

General Conference Sunday

Did you get a chance to watch or listen to General Conference yesterday?  If not, you can already read short summaries or watch the videos of the talks from all of the Saturday sessions.

If you did watch Conference, what impressed you?  How did the Spirit speak to you personally through the talks?

I felt impressed to use one particular talk for a Family Home Evening discussion in our family. Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shared a powerful lesson in his talk using the recent solar eclipse as a gospel analogy.  He said, “Gospel glasses comprised of a knowledge and testimony of gospel principles and ordinances provide spiritual protection and clarity for someone exposed to the hazards of a spiritual eclipse.”

Enjoy today’s two sessions of Conference and comment below to share what impressed you.

A Sacred Sunday and Saturday with Prophets and Apostles

The General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is already underway.  It began with the general women’s session, which was held last night in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah and broadcasted throughout the world.  If you didn’t have a chance to see it,  you can watch it at this link.

Next weekend we can receive counsel and a spiritual uplift as we listen to the words of living prophets and apostles of Jesus Christ.  You can find more information here.   We look forward to hearing what impressed you.  You can share your favorite quote from conference in the comments or by e-mailing woodbridgestakeblog@gmail.com.

 

Puzzle Pieces in the Work of the Lord

We are all a part of the Lord’s work.  Watch and share this video, A Witness of God, where Elder Neil L. Andersen describes how all of God’s children are pieces of a large puzzle in preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
