If anyone is feeling sad, stop. Forget about yourself. The only times we really are sad are when we're thinking about ourselves.
When we focus on others, that's when happiness comes. Everything is a choice. Literally. Everything.

Buenas mornings to all of you!:)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The peak of this week for me was definitely conference. But before that we had a good exchange with Elder Sanchez up in Rockport where we played ukelele together at a potluck at a trailer park. It was super fun. After that Elder Harker and I got to help out some members down here with some service and we drew the plan of salvation at a park hahaha it was super fun. 
Now, conference. Conference was such a great experience. The first session Elder Harker and I were alone at the church because everyone else watched it at home, but the rest there were a few people there. There were a lot of good talks that I loved, one of which was Elder Eyring's introductory talk about listening to the testimonies and praying for the speakers and the choir. I found it super powerful at the closing song of the first session, first because I love the song "Come Thou Fount" and I loved the sight of the one man that had tears in his eyes as he sang. 
Another one of my favorite talks was Elder Nelson's at Priesthood session. Really inspiring to know that we not only can but should ask Heavenly Father to teach us about the Priesthood. I have a testimony that as we pray with our whole heart, Heavenly Father will give us every needful thing. The trick is to make sure that your heart is in it, not just your head. Like Sister Oscarson's talk, we need to make sure that the Gospel is in our heart, not just our head. We need to believe it, not just know it. 
I wanted to extend the invitation to you all this week to PRAYERFULLY study one talk from conference. Pick one that you think will teach you something that you need at this point in your life, and I promise that as you do that you will receive an answer to a prayer you have been waiting on, whether it be about children, family matters, councils, school, work, spiritual responsibilities or any type of worry or concern you have. If you do, I would love you to write me and let me know how your experience went. I love you all and hope you have a great week!!
