My FAVORITE Talk Today

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
~Matthew 19:14 KJV~

I'm sure it will surprise no one who reads this blog which LDS General Conference talk was my favorite today.

You guessed it, it was given by Elder Neil Andersen. It was soooo refreshing to hear one of the Lord's Twelve Apostles repeat what our Church leaders have been saying for AGES, and what is clearly spelled out in "The Family: A Proclamation to the World."

As I listened to his inspired, uplifting words, (which I will post a link to as soon as the video of the talk is up on!) I received one more affirmation that all the sacrifices we've made to invite children into our home and family have been oh, so WORTH IT.

The Amazing and Wonderful Cocoa over at Chocolate on My Cranium pinned a link on Pinterest to the article Elder Andersen was quoting in his message this afternoon. It's a wonderful reminder, as well! Here's the link to the original article from the website "Desiring God", so that you can read the whole thing:

Motherhood Is A Calling

What a blessing it is to be a mother! And I am so grateful for each and every "blessing" the Lord has sent to join our family!!!



  1. I LOVED his talk too! Okay...I really loved them all, but his was especially wonderful to me! Hugs, sweet friend! :0)

  2. That was an excellent talk, wasn't it? I love when the prophet and apostles lay out clear doctrine without apology!

  3. Liked that talk too! Just another witness that the baby I am carrying is supposed to be here. I needed it!

  4. Such a wonderful talk. I think it's so important to teach women that the culture we live in is INCORRECT when it comes to families and children, because if we don't spell it out then they just accept the 'traditions of their fathers' instead of truly living the gospel.

    Or they attempt to live both which makes them feel like a failure no matter what they do.
