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.
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!
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.
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.
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."
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.
