LDS Conference 2015 - Guest post from Halee's Thoughts

Hey everyone! I'm super excited to introduce my darling friend Halee over at Halee's Thoughts. This girl is amazing, I adore everything about her. This girl is beautiful on both the inside and out and she inspires me tons! She's here on my blog today, and I'm talking about President Nelson's latest conference talk over on hers. Go check out her blog and find my girl power post HERE

Hi! My name is Halee! Not like Haley but like Haleeeeee, haha! I love inspiring people to be their best selves. I run the Instagram account @haleesthoughts & the blog (haleesthoughts.weebly.com) where I post "thoughts to inspire and motivate!" I love  dark chocolate, a good book, and traveling. 


Conference weekend is one of my favorite weekends, EVER. Who wouldn't like sitting on the couch in your pj's hearing the amazing prophet and apostles speak? Oh and don't forget all that snacking! It's like my favorite weekend, if I haven't already said that! ;)

Anyways, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite talks. It was super hard to pick just one so I narrowed it down one per session. I know that once I go back and read them I will have totally different favorites. Crazy the way one speaks to you one day and the next day you have a totally different favorite! God sure does know just what you need. 

General Women's Session
A Summer with Great-Aunt Rose by Dieter F. Uchtdorf 

I absolutely love stories and so when Uchtdorf gave his talk I was like, "This is how I learn. I love this talk. I love Uchtdorf." But then again who doesn't love Uchtdorf's talks? 

I also loved this talk because I found the truth so simple: be happy. I loved what he said, "God didn't design us to be sad. He created us to have joy."  Sometimes that is hard and I struggle with being happy and joyful sometimes and this talk just hit home for me!

Saturday Morning
What Lack I Yet? by Larry R. Lawrence 

I'm always setting goals and trying hard to improve so this talk was wonderful conformation that goals are important! I love the thought of praying about something to improve on each week. These past two weeks have been full of steady and tiny self-improvements. 

Saturday Afternoon
Turn to Him and Answers Will Come

I love how he said, " He does not answer just to respond to our curiosity." I find that very interesting and yet so true. It goes right along with Moroni 10:4-5. In order for us to get answers to our prayers, we need to have a sincere heart and real intent. 

Sunday Morning
Be an Example and a Light  by Thomas S. Monson

Who doesn't want to be a light unto the world? I know I do. I love how he explained how we can become lights unto the world. My favorite quote from this talk was: "Opportunities to shine surround us each day, in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. As we follow the example of the Savior, ours will be the opportunity to be a light in the lives of others."

Sunday Afternoon
My Heart Pondereth Them by Devin G. Durrant 

I loved the thought of ponderizing a scripture each week! Just like he said, "Imagine the uplifting results of doing this weekly for six months, a year, 10 years, or more." 

These were my absolute favorites this conference. I LOVED all of them honestly, but I felt like these to taught me so much. All of the talks were just what I needed then and answered so many questions I had. If you didn't get a chance to watch or listen I invite you to do so, HERE.
