“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”

Russell M. Nelson, “Let Your Faith Show”
Henry B. Eyring, “The Priesthood Man”
Today we had a regional conference with 14 stakes (I think) and both Elder Richard G. Scott as well as Elder Russell M. Nelson spoke - basically what I’m trying to say is that I’ve seen more apostles in the past week than I have in my entire life.
I thought it was 153 stakes.. All of Utah county, Heber county, and Wasatch county. That’s what my stake president/Dad said. But, I agree!! Amazing!!!
I think there were 14 stakes there in actual attendance and it was broadcasted to 153! :)
