Yes, I was very excited to hear the folowing quotes in conference today: "Use your hands to blog and text message the gospel to the world ... " (Dieter F. Uchdorf) AND also one of my favorite quotes: "Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words." (St. Francis Assisi) AND: "The only way to see the views is to make the climb." (Paul V. Johnson) AND "Kindness is the essence of greatness." (M. Russell Ballard quoting Joseph B. Wirthlin) AND "What we INSISTENTLY desire is what we will become." (Dallin H. Oaks) AND "A testimony is like a living organism." (Cecil Samuelson) AND "They [your children] may not remember exactly what you said or did, but they will remember that you said or did it." (Richard J. Maynes) AND "Fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith." (President Monson) AND "A person cannot give a crust without receiving back a loaf from the Lord." (Henry B. Eyring) AND "His tender mercies can make us mighty in any circumstance." (Walter Gonzalez)
