Shake and Bake

I am not a Shake and Bake dinner, I am like a gourmet chicken cordon bleu (that's the classiest thing you can think right now Olive? Great.) that needs, one of those mallets to BAM BAM BAM me out, some stuffing, and lots of other tender lovin cares. No easy in the bag, ready in minutes. What I'm trying to say is, I  require time, and patience, and that little something extra. I know that I have a Heavenly Father, and a loving Savior, who are preheating the oven as we speak. We're in this for the long haul, and they will give me all the time, all the love, and all the fun along. I am grateful for this opportunity to live, to love, to blossom. I'm grateful for a husband who has chosen to stand by me for time and all eternity, for my sweet bitty daughter who teaches me patience, for  the gospel that has given me a path to follow, for all the many, many comforts I enjoy, but do not necessarily deserve. My blessings abound.

For those of you who don't know, our church has a general conference twice a year (first weekend in April, and October). A gathering all around the worlds to listen to the leaders of our church speak on the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the modern maladies and balms for our days.

Here are a two of my favorite talks:

Elder Richard G. Scott

The Eternal Blessings of Marriage

Jean A. Stevens

Become as a Little Child

You can read, watch, listen to all of conference here .
