Every 6 months, the LDS church holds a worldwide conference. Instead of attending our regular church services on this weekend, we're invited to listen to the living prophet and the apostles of the church give direction via satellite broadcast.
It's always uplifting, and never fails to inspire me to do better. I also find that when I listen to these people speak with my heart open it's as if they are talking just to me. I hear answers to my problems, and find comfort in their stories and examples.
In short, it's several hours of time that really rest my soul, and then strengthen it.
Anyway, I'm always looking for The Quote. If you're a regular listener, you know what I mean. Usually there are one or two particular gems that are meaningful enough to speak to your heart, and concise enough that you could print it up in vinyl lettering and put it in a little niche of a wall somewhere that you will see it often.
So ...the contest is to help me find The Quote.
Just come back Saturday or Sunday - or both, and tell me what your favorite quotes are so far.
The first person to enter the winning quote will get a lovely gift box full of
Not just regular prizes, either. We're talking FABULOUS. (Which I would do all glittery again, but I don't think I can.)
