Twice a year we tune into General Conference of the LDS Church. We get to hear from the leaders of our church both Saturday and Sunday. It is such a wonderful time when saints all throughout the world gather together to listen to the word of the Lord spoken by His Prophets and Apostles.
I know it is not Easter quite yet, but being in April sure puts me in the mood for it! Two years ago, Jeffrey R. Holland gave, what I consider, the most soul stirring and heavenly talk on Jesus Christ, his Atonement and Resurrection. I love it so much, I immediately instigated a family tradition for us each Easter Sunday, which is to gather around and watch this together. It is entitled "None Were With Him" and was given at the General Conference in April of 2009. Here are links to it, and I really, really hope anyone reading this will have the time to listen to at least a portion of it. It is so marvelous, so uplifting, so beautiful and reverent, it moves me to tears every single time I listen to it. It is the perfect Easter message for everyone, and it is such a comfort to anyone who has suffered in any kind of way. I consider this talk a gift from Heavenly Father!
