    My testimony of Jesus Christ and His restored gospel and church has been refreshed and strengthened. Joseph Smith did in fact translate the ancient records into what we know today as the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Thomas S. Monson the living prophet of today. The holy priesthood of God has been restored. Such wonderful news flows through the hearts and minds of God's children throughout the whole earth and its ages. What a glorious time to be alive and a member of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints.

    Why was attendence and viewership down so much this year? Is it a sign of the times or just the economy. I would be interested in hearing the opinions of others.

    Conference was inspiring. It seemed like I got something from every talk that was personal and just for me. I am so grateful for a living prophet and 12 apostles who are Christ's spokesmen on the earth to guide and direct his church. I am also grateful for the Holy Ghost which can let me know personal things and what I need to work on. Now that conference is over, it's time to go, study, and apply!!!!!

    It was a wonderful conference. I wasn't sure why President Monson got up to the podium with a smile and a "hello" until this article explained he was a little late. But it was so charming the way he did it. I also didn't understand Pres. Packer's quoted poem because the poor man's enunciation seems to be getting weaker as he ages, so Des News published it, clarifying Pres. Packer's wonderful talk to the youth. What a good conference; I am looking forward to the last two sessions today.
