I feel certain that if, in our homes, parents will read from The Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate our homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope, and charity - the pure love of Christ - will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy, and happiness.
- President Marion G. Romney

Living Scripture- Welcome to Conference by President Monson

I had a dream last night and in this dream I recalled several wonderful messages given during Conference, I remembered them with great fondness but I could not recall what I felt prompted to do with that new knowledge. Nor could I specifically recall who said what.

When I woke up I decided that I needed to follow the scriptures and not be just a 'hearer of the word, only'. Conference talks are living scriptures, we can learn so much from them.

If it's okay with Julie and everyone else, I'd like to read and review a talk a week. Maybe more, if we get a good response. I will post an online link to the talk so everyone can read it. Then leave your impressions, things that touched you, something you learned and an action we are called to do, through the talk.

We'll just go in order beginning with the Saturday morning session. The first talk was the Welcome to Conference message by President Monson.
