Each year, they have a theme that each of the speakers put an emphasis on. "Living Proof" was this year's theme, so we were invited to focus on how we are "living proof" of God's love.
I try to jot down notes so I can remember some of what was said, though I'm not super successful all the time. Here's some of my notables (some are quotes, though they might not be exactly accurate):
|Me, Jenny Oaks Baker--super talented |
musician with crazy-talented children
|Tim Ballard, |
Operation Underground Railroad,
God will compensate for everything that happens in this life. (something awesome like that.) ~ Soni Muller, Mercy River
"Look at Christlike lives and find inspiration, not competition." ~ Lisa Valentine Clark
"When we take the sacrament, are we thinking about what He did in the Garden?" ~ Eric Huntsman
|Mercy River's Christmas album that has |
the song "Real."
Mary, the mother of Jesus, is a REAL person, not just a story, memory, or myth. Mercy River sang this beautiful song called "Real" that makes you think differently about the Nativity story. (Get their newest album...really...it's SOOO GOOD.)
"Jesus Christ knows who you are, what has happened to you, and what will happen to you." ~ Meg Johnson
Those are just a few of the highlights. I really love having these opportunities to be spiritually fed. There is so much going on in the world, so taking time to slow down and feed my spirit is vital. We each need to take time to refocus and spend time working on ourselves and our testimonies.
