A Different Kind of Post

Did you have a good weekend?

I did!  I made some great headway on my new sock quilt, ate lots of Snap Doodle Breakfast Cake (family recipe can be found HERE),
feasted on the word of God and did some crafting with my daughter.

It was a great weekend for handwork as our family spent about 8 hours in front of the television (Saturday and Sunday) listening to a prophets voice.  We always look forward to the opportunity that we get twice a year for what our faith (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) calls, General Conference.  I truly feel uplifted after listening to our dear Prophet, who is such a sweet and funny man, as well as other leaders of our church.  Questions have been answered and promptings have been felt.

I've been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints all my life.  I've always felt that it was true, but it was when I was about 19-years-old that I really found my strength and conviction.  Today I have been checking out the "I'm a Mormon Campaign" that I've heard a little about and let me tell you that listening to these every day peoples' stories about who they are and how the church has touched their lives is addicting.  I've only watched about 3 or 4 videos so far and I've already laughed, cried and smiled.  If you want to learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints you can start HERE.

I didn't plan to post about this today.  I hope you don't mind that I've gotten a bit serious here on my quilty blog.  Today I am just enjoying thinking about stuff that really matters.
