Well, it's over...

And I am so glad it is. I had the ...uh...pleasure?... of speaking at the adult session of conference yesterday. The topic...one of my favorite...just not to speak about...modesty. As you all know, I have quite an opinion on this subject. Lucky for me, I found many quotes from apostles, prophets, and other LDS leaders on this subject, so I didn't have to share much of my own thoughts. And I must say, I am in good company on this one. I think it mostly went okay, I just read what I had prepared. I am not so good at speaking "from the cuff." Just one quick thing I think most people could benefit from...(I found this in the New Era)...Head, shoulders, knees, and toes. When you get dressed, put yourself in front of a full length mirror, and proceed to raise your hands to your head, shoulders, knees, and toes. Does what you see change your mind on what you are planning to wear? When we dress modestly, we can have the companionship of the Holy Ghost.
Good Things:
1. Principle to live by
2. Modern Prophets
3. Having it over.

What a coincidence - I wasn't able to attend last night, but while I was sitting at home, I picked up an issue of the New Era I had laying around that I hadn't read yet and it was the issue with the Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes article. Sorry you had the "pleasure" of speaking, glad it's over for you!!

Your talk didn't just mostly go okay, it was great. I really think it was my favorite of the session. I thought you had great quotes and that everything was well prepared and presented. Sometimes other people come less prepared and they end up rambling. Greg said that you give General Conference talks and I would have to agree. Be glad that you won't have this "pleasure" again for hopefully another decade :)

You did a great job! It needed to be said, but I know one family that REALLY needed to hear it from our ward wasn't there.....sadly! Maybe I can talk to our Bishop and see if you can come give the same talk in our ward! ;-)

It was awesome.

My thought was too bad they didn't have you do it in Sunday morning's meeting where more people could hear it.

So glad it was you and not me speaking. I am sooooooo grateful for standards. My kids don't know any different and the best part is they don't ever push it. I could put that on your list of things to be thankful for. So thankful!
