All the conference talks

This morning I had to add a quote to my talk. 

I had promised myself the night before I wasn't going to touch it, but then I had a dream about giving my talk and in my dream I used this quote in my conclusion. It was still in my mind when I woke up. I knew it was an actual quote from one of the talks I had read this past month (there were many); it was only a question of figuring out which one it was from. 

While I was using the search command on talk after talk after talk, Rachel came up to me and said, "Huh. Where do you find those?"

"Find what?" I asked.

"Conference talks," she said.

"Oh, they're all online. You just go to lds.org and search for them."

"Cool, 'cuz I need to read some," she said.

"Which ones?" I asked.

"All of them," she said.

Good luck, I thought because there are a lot of conference talks. 

I eventually found the very quote I was looking for: “He accomplishes His miracles one prayer at a time, one person at a time" (Sister Jean A. Stevens) and then went to check on Rachel, who was weirdly not joining Benjamin and Miriam in doting on Princess Zoë. 

She was in her room looking up conference addresses. All of them...from April 2017. 


Apparently there's a worksheet they can turn in during primary next week for a treat if they fill out the main idea of every speaker from this past general conference.

One day I will convince this child to smile at me instead of glare at me when she sees me with the camera...
