We did watch conference. All 10 hours. My favorite talk was probably the one President Monson gave in priesthood about having courage. Will you send me a CD of conference so I can listen to them in the car and stuff? Thanks. All the warnings about whirlwinds and stuff were funny, because we were having a lightning storm during conference over here. How ironic. I really like that thought of being on solid ground though. It's something I have been thinking about a lot lately. I was starting the Book of Mormon again and I read 1 Nephi 1:6. I was wondering why Nephi thought it was important to mention that the pillar of fire that Lehi saw was on a rock before him. Why not just assume it was by him, or on the ground, or in the grass. The best answer to that question I could come up with was that revelation comes to the steadfast and immovable. We must be strong in our faith like a rock, and build our foundation on Christ.(Helaman 5:12) We must pray in faith, with nothing wavering. (James 1:6) Revelation and help from our father in heaven doesn't come unless we can give him a good base to lay it on. Love you all.
