Congratulations to, Natalie, the winner of Gerald Lund's book.  I will make sure it is mailed to you from the States before Allan heads home.  I know you will enjoy the book and can't wait to hear what you think.  Thanks to those of you who commented and entered.  

Now I'm heading to the Stake Center to watch Conference.  I have a list of questions that I'm taking with me.  I love knowing that as I'm sitting in the Stake Center watching, my husband and Heidi, Daniel, and Brent are at the Conference Center watching.  As well, Elder Rob is sitting in a Stake Center in Idaho watching.  When we stand to sing they are standing and singing, too.  That warms my heart.  

Enjoy Conference.

AND NOW A VERY LONG SIDENOTE:  I know I won't have time to do a post tomorrow with my plans for my April Thirty Day Challenge, so I'll put it here.   But first an update on my March Challenge. I guess I should clarify something.  Yes, my last challenge was not really 30 days BUT 31 ; )  Oops.

The March Challenge involved spending at least 15 minutes every day working on Family History.  I loved it.  We even took names to the temple and that was so great.  The biggest problem for me with family history is working on it for 15 minutes doesn't work.  I get a little crazy and that's all I do.  I also did some indexing, which I really enjoy.

So I've given a lot of thought for April and I think my challenge will be that I will have only one treat a day for the month.  Now it can be any treat I want--a big treat or a small treat but I can only have one.  I figure this is as good a time as any to accomplish this.    Wish me luck.  How about you, what is it you'd like to accomplish?

Your March challenge seems like it was awesome. I'm not sure how Family History could be just 15 minutes.

I look forward to your April stuff.

Enjoy Conference.

I have enjoyed indexing so much! I have tried to do "Family History" all month, through writing in my journal, going to the temple, doing indexing or just researching my ancestors. Some days it has been over an hour, other days it was only 10 minutes but I did it. It was hard after Grady died but I included writing down my feelings in my journal and on my blog. I will continue with this until May 3rd, (that's when the 9 week challenge will be over.)
Good luck with your April challenge. I think it would be hard for me to have only one treat. I have to do NONE or I don't know when to stop! :)
Enjoy Conference. I'm listening to Pres. Packer's talk right now. Absolutely beautiful!

I really should be setting some goals. You inspire me with your constant efforts to improve yourself. I'll have to think about a goal for April. I have many MANY things I need to improve or work on.

Good job on your March challenge. I think your April challenge is great too. You are certainly and inspiring woman. I am blessed to call you my friend.

Just doing some catching up. Life has been rather busy. We recently welcomed home our missionary on March 20th and it has been grand!

I am glad to hear Heidi is doing well. You have an amazing family.

Hope you enjoyed conference. I did.
