What I learned this weekend.

Howdy, friends.

This weekend was LDS General Conference (#LDSConf) and it was awesome. What is General Conference? It is a series of 7 meetings, each two hours long, over a period of two days. It happens every first weekend in April, and every first weekend in October. What is talked about? Jesus Christ and His gospel. How we can follow Him. How we can emulate Him. How we can be better people.

It is edifying, uplifting and positive. And yes, Mormons are Christians.

Today I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes from this weekend's conference. There are lots of great ones out there, just check Pinterest....but these quotes are from my own note-taking, the things that stuck out to me personally.
