Reminder for [me] you

I was talking with a good friend last night about making tough decisions. Don't you love those? Ya, me too. (Or maybe not so much.) I feel like I'm pretty good at making a decision and sticking with it, however, when it comes to really big decisions, I don't want to mess up.

Her advice to me was, "Take it to Conference." (Kind of reminds me of that line from You've Got Mail when Tom Hanks tells Meg Ryan to take her decision "to the mattresses." Also a line from the Godfather, which I've never seen. I digress.)

Lightbulb. Why didn't I think of that? I wanted to share the wisdom with the rest of you and say, if you're struggling with something or seeking answers to questions, start preparing now to listen to our Prophet and the other Brethren and have faith that their words will be an answer to your questions. I know that happens and I know there will be something for you...and me.

President Uchtdorf teaches that “there are messages in each general conference given as a gift and a blessing from heaven specifically for our personal life situations.” Read more of his words on preparing for Conference here.


  1. Thanks for the reminder, Ashley. Have a great weekend!

  2. Ashley! I love you and your darling blog and I'm pleased as punch to be here. Thanks for sharing with me.

    Love this post too!

  3. It's been many years since I watched General Conference. I plan on watching this one and I'm really excited. I hope that it will inspire both of us.

  4. I've been meaning to mention, once this very large decision of yours has been made, I want to be informed pretty quickly. I'm making a lot of assumptions here, but I assume I am right. :)

    Also, I love you. Do what makes you happiest!

  5. such great advice!

    Ah! Best ever!
