Favorite General Conference Quotes | October 2017 | Free Printables
 
 

It's that time of year again, where I get to ponder and reread the words shared by the prophets. Though I do not get a lot out of listening to the live addresses, two toddlers...you know what I mean? I thoroughly enjoy listening in the weeks following while I read, underline and highlight the revelation given by inspired women and priesthood leaders of the LDS church. April of last year was the first year I decided to create and offer my free general conference printables! That was how my blog really started to take off! I have loved getting messages from you about how you are utilizing my printables to share with those around you!! It's wonderful how faith can bring us together from all places around the world. 

I made a little more than usual this year, but there are too many good ones!!! Plus, I had wayyyy too much fun with the Adobe Sketch app to make these watercolor effects. Creativity has always been such a good way for me to express my faith. Writing and artistic design have helped me stay in touch with my personal spirituality through out the years, and I believe that's because my creative mind is one of my God given gifts. It allows me to slow down and appreciate the beauty in the world around me. I can't always speak the way I feel, but I can through artful expression.

I create for myself. It helps me share my faith and testimony, and I pray that it can uplift someone along the way. 

Going into conference weekend, I always try to have questions in my mind that I can receive revelation for. I've yet to come away with them unanswered, whether by the words of the prophets or whisperings of the spirit. The biggest take away for me this conference was how my unique and divine nature is important in my Heavenly Father's eternal plan. And that His plan is better than my own. Sometimes I get so caught up in the things I want to accomplish or overcome, that I forget to ask what His plan is for me. If there is one thing I've learned in my life thus far, it's that His plan is ALWAYS BETTER than the one I have for myself. 

I know that I am His daughter and that He has a plan for me. Never forget you are a child of God, and He has a plan for you. Listen/watch/read the Prophet's addresses at LDS.org or for more information on what I believe go to Mormon.org

Favorite General Conference Quotes || October 2016 FREE PRINTABLES

I'm finally back to share my favorite general conference quotes from the October General Conference! I really struggled to narrow it down, so I'm sharing more than I did last time! I find so much joy in reflecting on the words of conference while creating these printables. I've also been touched by the many people who have reached out to me in gratitude for the printables I made after the last general conference in April.  

It's amazing how even a little thing like this can be an influence for good. I love that the gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of sharing goodness. To love and uplift everyone we come in contact with. To be a light and an influence for the good that is in this world. 

Today I had the opportunity to sing at a sacrament meeting held in a independent living retirement home, and it was such a special experience. To see in their eyes that the gospel is true in every stage of life. The peace I felt among them is indescribable. Their smiling faces looking at me as I sang about our loving Savior touched my spirit so deeply. I often feel that my talents are insignificant, but moments like that help me realize what a blessing those talents truly are. Especially in my own spiritual progression. 

It's so easy to the talents of others and compare ourselves to them. I'm challenging myself, and all of you, to pray for the realization of your own talents. I pray that I'll have more opportunities to use my talents for the benefit of all, that I can be an influence for good. I hope we can all do the same. To lift instead of criticize. To love instead of judge. Just as He did.

Favorite Women's Conference Quotes || Free Printables

I've been working on these printables of quotes from the General Women's Conference and wanted to share my favorites. I was so touched by the things these wonderful women shared during the conference. Their thoughtful words inspired me and helped me feel more gratitude for my role as a wife, mother, and daughter of God in serving those around me. I'm grateful to be a part of a church that values woman and the attributes that we carry. 

You can watch the talks here and watch the last session of conference with me live at LDS.org.

Found My Soul || Monthly Free Printable || A Dash of Salter || Motherhood. In raising my children, I have lost my mind but found my soul. Lisa T. Shepherd. Print Freebie
"In raising my children, I have lost my mind but found my soul."

Matthew left for a business trip last Monday until Wednesday night. While he was gone, all I could think about was how hard it was to do this mom thing every day without his comfort and support. I was constantly focusing on how I was losing my mind, and forgetting that my children were helping me find my soul. It made me realize how much I depend on that connection. He can come home from work to do absolutely nothing, but I feel an instant sense of relief and security in knowing I'm not in this parenting journey alone. 

Two days later, I took off for a girls trip in Park City. I couldn't wait to spend some time in a beautiful place with beautiful people. As we talked all the live long day, we shared details of our relationships with our husbands and children. We left them to get a break, but it was the majority of our conversation. It's too hard not to talk about motherhood when it's what fills your whole life. We talked about struggles and adversity in our roles as mothers. And about the importance of having the support of community and sisterhood with other strong women. 

We should always be there for one another. We should reach out to one another when we feel like we're losing our minds. That relationship of empathy, love and compassion will help us continue doing that most important work. To raise our children to be the good in this world. Isn't that our greatest goal as mother's? To see our children succeed and change this world for the better? That is my goal. And I know that I am not alone in reaching it.

So many angels in the form of a person have lifted me up when I feel I'm failing in the role of motherhood. It's through those angels that I know my Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ, know me personally and love me unconditionally. God sent me these children because He trusted me to nurture, love and teach them. As I've prayed in moments of defeat and desperation, the spirit witnesses to me that He knows I am doing my best. That my best is enough.

And so is yours. 

I'm grateful for that knowledge, and for all of the angels around me that make this journey a little bit easier. I hope you enjoy this free printable and have a great day!

Favorite General Conference Quotes || Free Printables

It was so nice to unplug and be inspired throughout general conference this last weekend. It was just what my soul needed. These five quotes are just a few of the things the general authorities shared that touched my heart.

I was especially grateful for the short and simple words spoken by the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Thomas S. Monson during the Sunday Morning session. It was a message of encouragement to always choose the right. If you missed any of the sessions or are interested in watching these inspiring messages, you can view them all on LDS.org

I love that through the spirit the words of the prophets, apostles and church leaders can speak right to our hearts in a very individual and personal way. What's amazing to me is that so many can be touched by the exact same phrase, but still get something completely different from it.  

I'm so grateful for my faith and the comfort it gives me on a daily basis. It's such a deep rooted part of my life and I hope it stays that way forever. I know that my belief in God and my Savior has blessed my life as I strive to be my best self. 

I hope that this blog helps others feel happy and inspired on a regular basis. That it encourages others to keep trying to be their best selves, in whatever way they think that is achieved. Regardless of faith, background, or differences. I hope that it encourages others to live what they believe and not be ashamed of it. If it brings you joy, share it with others! That's what I'll be trying to do my whole life long.

Now, here are the links to download each of my 8x10 printables. I hope you'll print them out, hang them up, and feel inspired all year long! And if you don't want to ever miss my other design freebies or posts, subscribe to my email list as well!
