We just spent a wonderful weekend together as a family. We listened to General Conference at home wrapped in blankets. For those not familiar with our LDS faith, General Conference is a time where we hear words of instruction and counsel from the prophet, Thomas S. Monson, members of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles and other General Authorities and officers of the church. Links to their biographies can be found here. We are taught from the scriptures, messages of faith in Jesus Christ are shared, and beautiful music is sung in an effort to draw us closer to Christ and prompting us to live more Christian lives. Audio archives of the talks are already available. General Conference is broadcast over the internet and cable TV and to over 6,ooo church buildings throughout the world in 94 languages.
The girls and I made our traditional Sweet Rolls Saturday night while Mr. Ferrero Rocher went to the Priesthood session with his brothers. Sunday we ate sweet rolls for breakfast along with some eggs and ham that Mr. FR and Fudge cooked for us. The littler kids watched General Conference downstairs so they could set up a tent with blankets while the rest of us watched it upstairs. We then took a car ride along the foot of the mountains. It was so good to have Mr. FR home with us this Sunday as his usual Sunday duties as bishop keep him either at church meeting with members of our ward (local congregation) or visiting with them in their homes.
