The "historic" part, Deuce, was having the younger girls there for the first time. These meetings were once for those ages twelve and up, so having them attend brought some fresh faces and welcome smiles.

Glad you were able to attend, and hope you join your friends for General Conference next weekend. You'll get a taste of what the Church is all about, and hopefully you will enjoy the messages.

I've been a member all my life, but not always active. My father was an abusive alcoholic who fought against the Church half the time, and the other half, he would straighten up and attended meetings with us. He finally joined the Church in full fellowship and took part of us to the temple to be sealed as an eternal family. The others, damaged by his drinking, never came to the temple. Living in extremes like this, and seeing the good that comes to those who have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives, it was easy for me to decide to stand on The Lord's side. I am praying for my siblings to join us. We want each branch of our full family tree together.

Dear @The Deuce: I wasn't as insightful as I would have liked to have been. I am extremely grateful that the others stepped in with their comments that may have helped you even further.

I had hoped that after I had posted, that I wasn't being offensive to you. I pray that the Spirit of the Lord is touching you and your family, opening your minds and hearts to the message of salvation.

So sorry you had that experience. I hope this weekends' General Conference will hold a more spiritual and enlightening experience for you...and more importantly...for your family.
