President Monson started the conference off with a bang with this historic announcement: Missionary ages have been changed, effective immediately. Young men can serve at age 18 as long as they've graduated from high school and young women can serve at age 19.
WOW!! That sure caused a happy stir around here!
Sam's wheels are turning and he's on the hunt for a job so he can start saving. Savannah is thrilled! This announcement pretty much eliminated any concerns she's had about serving a mission. I can't wait to see all the good this historic change will bring about. It's an exciting time to be a member of the church.
We loved hearing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing. Each time the camera panned to the center, we saw what looks like a grown up version of my brother's little boy, Tyler.
|Seriously. This man looks just how we imagine Tyler in about 50 years! :)|
It was an awesome conference. A couple of my favorite talks can be found here and here, but really there were so many good ones. I'm always sad to see Conference Weekend end. Looking forward to April!
