It feels like the last three weeks have been at least three months. My heart has gone through so much. My stress level is sky rocketing and sometimes I fail to see the bright side. I was looking forward to General Conference with every fiber of my being, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I was amazed at the spirit felt. I was amazed at the answers I received. I was in love with the love that was being given through the words spoken. There is no denying that our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ have an undying and eternal love for all of us. I'll just share a few of my favorite things I jotted down here and maybe you will feel something move in you as you read.

I think thats enough for now. That is just the highlights that I just loved from the first session! I'll probably post some more through the week. My testimony has been deepened. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us, and I plead with all of you who may not know to pray to Him. He will let you know that He is there and He will guide you with the deepest of all loves. :))
Have a happy Monday night.
