Stake Conference

What we learned in Stake Conference this weekend:

"Don't be the Kamakazi pilot that flew 100 missions"
(Commit to something)

"Be like a stamp and stick to it!"
(Endure)

"If you buy a new boomerang, don't waste your life trying to throw away the old one."
(Once you repent, move on. Stop dwelling on the past.)

"Be the father your children think you are."
(Children don't see it all...)

"Be the missionary your mother thinks you are."
(Some missionaries are, others just have mothers who think they are.)

and Rob's favorite...
"Wives should have a hot meal waiting on the table when their husbands get home, and make sure their husbands feel appreciated." (Although she was serious when it was said, the message was about service to others inspite of our own trials.)
