Stake Conference

Stake Conference was very good this weekend. I really felt uplifted. Debi King spoke on Saturday night, she did an amazing job. I really enjoyed her talk. I'm so thankful that we went to Saturday night conference and then again on Sunday. Saturday night we watched a talk given in General Conference by James Corbridge somethings we reminded us of...There is opposition in all things. Come unto the Lord all who are heavy laden...He is there to carry our burdens. The Lord's way is not is hard. Get on the path and never give up OR get off. Sometimes we all need to be reminded that the Lord is there for us.
On Sunday one of the speakers said Listen and give heed to the Lord's spirit. Focus on Spiritual things (rather than worldly). Listen and follow our leaders. If we are prepared we will not fear.
Predident Uchtdorf said Have a current Temple recommend even if you can't go often.
Study the word of God daily.
Pray Daily=Speak to Heavenly Father
Quotes from other Presidents of the Church
Ezra Taft Benson-Nothing can take the place of prayer
Howard W hunter -Set our houses in order with prayer
Thomas S Monson- Never been a time when there is a greater need to teach family prayer.

I find it interesting that so much importance is going back to basics. Listen to the Holy Ghost, relaying on the Lord. Going to him in prayer. I'm grateful for these gentle reminders.

Yes like you said it is so basic and easy if we don't muck it up ourselves:)
