Women Unite...

I just finished re-watching the Women's General Conference Addresses. I just have to say Elder Uchtdorf “ROCKS”! That was meant in the most spiritual and reverent way possible. Ladies, if you missed his talk Saturday evening you really did miss out.
You can go here to get it.

For those of you who aren't LDS, we have a conference once a year, usually the last Saturday in September, just to spiritually lift the women of the world.

Of course Sis. Beck and her counselors gave inspiring addresses also. Don't skip theirs on your way to President Uchtdorf's.

So here goes. He mentioned how we women tend to create wonderful things yet we apologize for them. I.E., dinners that aren't perfect, children that aren't perfect, invitations for Relief Society events that weren't perfect. He mentioned that sometimes "undervaluing our abilities we focus on what is lacking rather than on what we have accomplished." Sometimes these traits can lead to depression and exhaustion.

He also mentioned that one of Heavenly Father's greatest joys can be found in creating and compassion. We should enjoy creating and not just "recreating" but growing gardens, creating meals, creating laughter. Anything that we make from an idea and bring it to life is good.

O.K. that is my teaser. Check it out if you haven't already. Your day will go better with this knowledge under your belt. (Maybe I should have re-watched this before home school yesterday.)

O.K. one more quote,
"In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance!"
