Each and everyone of the messages seemed directed to me, and I enjoyed all of them. Elder Nelson said that salvation is an individual matter, but exaltation is a family matter. Elder Bednar talked about prayer, and invite us not to give Heavenly Father a list of things we want so to speak, but if we ask for something, to accept the commitment to do our part in achieving that blessing we're seeking. Elder Ballard talked to young mothers, and asked them to cherish their little ones and not neglect them for soap-operas (tv in general) and surfing the internet He also urged us not to overburden ourselves, and to strive for a balance
in our lives. We watched 3 of the five sessions, one we missed on Saturday afternoon (I'm watching it tomorrow), and the other one was the Priesthood Session, which Gorgeous Boricua attended (the broadcast) with his work companions, even though Saturday is their greatest selling day. His faith paid off because he had 5 sales yesterday! I'm so proud of him and so grateful for his willingness to provide a good life for us, and a good example.
Gorgeous Boy missed attending Priesthood session with his father, even though he technically doesn't have to attend as he's only 7 years old. But he's being baptized this year. My big, little boy who wants to do the right so much, and who's such a great helper. Swan Princess kept asking when we were going to go to church, and I told her today church was at home. I hope we can feel the "church" spirit at home everyday, that I can make my home a safe haven, a house of order and inspiration, so my husband and children (and I) want to come here to spend time together and learn from one another.
Here's a picture my Gorgeous made of his baptism:
