I really, truly hope that all of you attended the Priesthood session of General Conference tonight. I just got home (with my post-Conference smoothie from Jamba Juice) and had to say what an amazing experience it was.
You know how you usually sit in conference and throughout a session one or two of the talks will be meaningful to you? Well, I dare say that every talk at Priesthood session tonight hit me in some meaningful way. I especially loved Elder Hales talk. I don't have one of those photographic memories, so I can't sit here quoting him. But, the main theme that I got out of his talk was honoring your Priesthood. He talked about how you need to realize what an honor it is, and that you should always be aware that you bare it. And as you go about in your life, you should always question the places you go and "Should I take my Priesthood there?"
There were so many amazing things said tonight. I really hope that all of my struggling MoHo friends paid attention. I have read so many things in people's blogs detailing their struggles and challenges. All of us MoHos have pretty much the same issues. Every single one of those struggles and challenges had answers given in the talks tonight. All of them.
And the closing song that the choir sang brought tears to my eyes. It was so amazingly beautiful.
Honor your Priesthood. Be the man that God has ordained you to be.
