|Are children better behaved, or just uncomfortable, while wearing their "Sunday best?"|

My ancestors also had the challenge of taking notes so they could keep and review conference teachings. Today I (and you) can find talks almost immediately on lds.org and review favorite sermons from the past fifty years.
When I was younger, I hoped to hear something new--like the starting date for the Millennium. But now what I need to hear is the same messages I hear at church on Sunday, the same messages taught to my pioneer ancestors. Messages that were , in fact,
taught by Jesus (and Old Testament prophets before Him.)
As I said, I hear these messages in church all the time. But there is something about the change in setting and circumstance twice a year that helps me listen better.
Do you feel hopeless? Are there bad habits you need to change? Do you want to view people in a more positive way?
Please share. The world is a troubled place and many of us are in need of inspiration.
I've had some rough patches of pain this week, so nothing is finished or beautifully photographed, but I have some works in progress to share.
