All I can say is this: I love Conference weekend.
And, this MUST be God's church here on this Earth, if it's not, then the members of the church, all 15 million 82 thousand and 28 of us are all just insane to be willing to gather from all corners of the earth to listen to some men speak.
President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. This means that he speaks with our Heavenly Father and our Savior, he KNOWS them personally; and because of that, we are so blessed in these latter-day saints. I invite all of you to personally pray and receive a testimony and learn of our prophet and apostles distinct testimony of Christ. They truly are prophets, seers, and revelators of a true and LIVING Christ.
Here are my insights from this weekend!
