Do yourself a favor and read this book:

It's based on this book:

Which you should also read.

I haven't actually read the latter of the two books because I'm currently reading 7 other books.

But I already know it's wonderful.

365 Days of Wonder is just a book with an inspirational quote for every day of the year.
Some of them are anonymous. Some of them are from famous people.
Some of them are from children from across the nation.

I like to look up the precept for the day every morning. I often make my students write in their journal about the precept and what it means to them. And then we get to talk about it.

These precepts make me laugh and/or make me think a little more deeply about life.
I'm good with either.

Mr. Browne's Precept for October 17:
"Normal is a setting on a washing machine."


my weekend

I couldn't tell you exactly what every talk was about and I can't give you an inspirational quote word for word.

What is I can tell you is this:

The Spirit that I felt this weekend while listening to General Conference was real.

The Lord does speak through his servants.

I have lots of things that I need to work on.

But my Heavenly Father loves me no matter what.

And he's gonna help me through whatever comes my way.

Mostly I feel like I can conquer the world now.

I can't wait to listen to all these talks again.

And I can't wait to read and ponder over them.

Because these inspired men and women said a lot of things that touched my heart.

And if, for whatever reason, you didn't listen to General Conference. You should. lds.org
