This question is for the Mormon women (and men!) who listened to the General Conference messages from this past weekend, and to any not of our faith who may have listened as well. What talks resonated with you? What patterns did you notice in the messages? What insights helped you feel strength and peace and hope? What do you feel you want to do better to follow the Lord, Jesus Christ and to reach out for His healing and strengthening grace?
All of conference was wonderful! I personally feel very grateful to have had the blessing of hearing Jeffrey R. Holland’s talk, “Like A Broken Vessel.” I loved the fact that he so directly, and openly spoke of mental illness, particularly that of depression. I don’t recall ever hearing an apostle speak so candidly about emotional and mental trials. As someone who has struggled with depression, his talk served as an amazing reminder to me that Heavenly Father knows and loves all of his children. I owe much gratitude to a loving Father in Heaven, and inspired church leaders. I know many who were deeply touched by Elder Holland’s talk.
