I really appreciated the list and the way it was presented. It looked like greeting cards or book covers. I loved conference. Thank you for sharing.

But not a word about the gun slaughter going on in our streets, schools, public buildings, and even in our churches. Why?

I have another Meme that you entirely neglected: "Just because the nation may change its laws to "tolerate legalized acts of immorality" does not make those acts less spiritually damaging". Elder Boyd K. Packer. That one statement should be placed on every latter-day saint home next to the Proclamation to the World regarding the family and a picture of the Temple.

To Mike in Cedar City, Who wants to listen to murders and violence in conference. We read and hear about it every day of the week. I prefer what I heard.

Mike, you must have skipped a session. The Newtown shooting was definitely discussed over the pulpit in conference. But I have a feeling you're not really asking.

May want to revise the LDS Church in numbers image. I know members are kept on the rolls until they're 110, known dead, or are officially removed by letter of resignation. There are many who are no longer members that aren't removed. My wife left last summer ... she never sent a letter ... you can remove 1 from that official number.

@LValfre

If you want her off the rolls, she has to send a letter. Why do you expect others to read your mind and get the right answer while she doesn't do one simple thing?

If the LDS church is only supposed to count members who are regularly attending church, I suggest you take your beef to the Catholic church as well. Why should they be allowed to count non-church-going members if the LDS church can't?

LValfre, if your wife never sent a letter that she no longer wants to be a member, it would be a bit presumptuous of the church to assume that she doesn't. I know people who never attend church who would be quite miffed if the church were to assume they no longer want to be members. Why they'd be miffed, I don't know, but it makes sense to me to for the church to assume someone wants to remain a member unless she says she doesn't. Are you sure your wife wants her membership cancelled?

LValfre, I was in an on-line discussion with someone once about this subject, and I asked him how traditional Christians determined how many Christians there were in the world. He said that the best way to do that was to just ASK people whether or not they considered themselves Christian. My response was that that was proof that Latter-day Saints ARE Christian, because if you were to just ask people whether or not they are Christians, all the Latter-day Saints would say that they are.

To: Mike in Cedar City....we are all aware of the violence that goes on constantly in our country but it is not something our Leaders want to bring up - Fox News and the other channels do that...conference is a time to uplift, teach, encourage and forgive.

There's funny memes on facebook under "memes for mormons." I'm collecting them for my daughter while she's on her mission. There aren't any uplifting ones, or really mean ones, just funny one.

I really love these though. Deseret Book should sell them in a pack so kids can hang them in their lockers and on their mirrors.

Also, does anyone else notice how many of the great phrases come from Elder Uchtdorf who is the non-native English Speaker. What a great guy!

Frankly, as of last October's conference, I was really sorry to see / hear Conference reduced to a bunch of slogans and buzz words. After Sister Dibb's "...I know it, I live it, I love it", it seemed like every talk thereafter was a race to come up with some new motto.

I guess I'm getting old.
