    President Uchtdorf's talk was beautifully honest, and a call to repentance to many.

    I never cease to be amazed and thrilled with the subject of the talks given. Conference was so inspiring and uplifting..we all need that with the challenges we face each day. What incredible, learned men of God and what a privilege it is and blessing to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is nothing better.

    I too loved conference - as always.

    I appreciate the way the Brethren counter the trends of the world. There is no name calling, no pointing of fingers, no arguments --- they simply state our doctrine and beliefs; not to offend others, but to explain why we will continue to live and believe as we have.

    Many in the world will take offense, call us names, and threaten with what ever they have on hand to throw at us. That is their choice. We choose to simply do our best to come closer to Christ and to follow His doctrine as we understand it.

    I was inspired this morning from the talks that were given. Elder Oaks hit the nail right on the head. God's laws come first. And it mattereth not that others don't believe in God.. we do.. and we follow.

    Persecution will come. And he was speaking to many of the Saints that are now sitting on the fence.. trying to support the ways of the new world.. yet trying to live by God's old one. They can't live both as they are direct opposites of each other.

    I heard in Presidents Monson's talk that following the commandments of God does not totally protect one from the sorrows of this earthly life. Sometimes.. even when we are doing right.. things still go wrong. It does rain on the just.. and unjust.. alike. But it is all in how we deal with this adversity that makes the difference.

    I have really enjoyed the theme of this conference so far. It truly reminds me of the parable of the 10 virgins. Which one of that group will we be.. wise? or foolish? Those who chose the way of the world outside of this church is certainly the foolish choice.
