i am who i am

i belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and i am so thankful i do.
this past weekend was general conference, a time when the leaders of our church speak to the members. its ten hours of instruction over two days, and its always incredible. this past weekend was no different.

"we are who we are. 
we know what we know. 
we must go forth and preach the Gospel."
-boyd k. packer

if we keep the commandments and pattern our lives after Christ, 
not only will we gain eternal life, 
but we will also leave the world more wonderful than it would have been 
if we had not.
-keith b. mcmullin

"to qualify for 
and learn 
how to receive personal revelation 
is the most important thing 
we can learn in this life."
-julie b. beck

' "what you do speaks so loudly 
i cannot hear what you say." '
-ralph waldo emerson, via m. russell ballard

it is so important to be strong in things such as 
ethical standards 
and my faith in the gospel, 
one day, 
these are the most important things
 i will teach in my home, 
to my children.
-l. tom perry

' "when the Lord commands, do it." '
-joseph smith, via bruce a. carlson

"the only real control in life is self control."
-jeffrey r. holland

"no matter the situation, 
our response can reset the course of your life
never let an earthly circumstance 
disable you spiritually."
-donald l. hallstrom

"learn what we should learn, 
do what we should do, 
and be who we should be."
-henry b. eyring

just a few of the things that stood out to me. 
this is gospel is my heart, my soul, my mind and my life.
