I love the fall....for many reasons. But, tonight I'm talkin' 'bout the General Relief Society Broadcast! It's the Saturday before the October General Conference....only in the fall. It's always so awesome and so uplifting and inspiring.
I just finished watching it live, via the internet. I wasn't sure if they broadcast it live online as I'm 99.9% sure they don't do the priesthood session, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not that it is a huge deal because if it wasn't live I probably could have watched it online tomorrow but, it was.
I found each talk enjoyable but, I just love love love to hear President Utchdort speak. He always seems to have a key phrase to plant in our minds or a beautiful picture to help us remember and he very often has an inspiring, fresh, and creative list for us.
A lot has been on my mind lately, trying to sort out a lot of thoughts and emotions and blessings and struggles. The Relief Society Broadcast really helped me start to sort somethings out...it always does! It's true that I didn't hear anything that I hadn't heard before, but hearing it this time, from this General Relief Society Presidency and President Utchdorf tonight really helped me.
And so my spiritual pump has been primed, by watching the Broadcast, I have begun to prepare myself for the gush of gospel truths that will fill our house next Saturday and Sunday. I hope to find ways to continue to prepare myself all week for that gush. If I prepare to receive the messages that the Lord has in store for me through the leaders of His church, I can expect answers to prayers, direction, purpose, understanding, inspiration and I'm sure much much more.
I hope you got to watch. If you didn't, I hope you will...it is well worth your time. What a blessing!
