jump the utah train

[title reference? anyone? hint: song lyrics...]

so,
as i do every 6 months, i am headed to utahland this weekend
to hear the words of prophets!

my thoughts/feelings are much the same as they were the last time i went

i swear, this weekend is like christmas to me
i feel calm at the very sound of the prophet's and apostle's voices
i'm doing what i was taught to do, which is to enter the weekend with a list of questions and a lot of prayer
and, i fully expect answers
because, i've always gotten them before

this time i'm trying something a little new
instead of just going in with a list of questions
i plan to make some decisions beforehand
because
i am learning that the level of inspiration i receive tends to be in direct correlation with the level of commitment i've shown to a particular decision
when i am decisive, i receive answers more quickly

heaven seems to reflect my own level of effort in that way...

perhaps you will try it with me?

in any case,
i hope you have a couple minutes for this video
it always touches me deeply...

LOVE that you are going to Utah again :) Are you and Chantallion going together?

OH and I actually didn't make my button...Tim did. Haha oh the things I make him do. I couldn't figure out how to do it by myself, but someone commented on my post and told me this site was super helpful on making them [if you are interested]:

I attended conference for the first time! It has always been a dream of mine. I was amazing and unreal. I received a lot of inspiration and answers to my prayers. We're so blessed to hear these inspired speakers. I love conference!
