Since I started teaching seminary the weekend has had new meaning for me! I so look forward to it, that when it comes it almost feels like a holiday! Fridays are especially great! I don't have to think about a lesson plan at least until Saturday....woohoo!!!!! Celebrate good times...come on!
Can you tell I'm writing this on Friday?

Before the glorious resurrection was the work of the atonement. It is the central focus of all Christian belief. As a Christian, I am humbly grateful for this pivotal event in history.
"Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:4-5

After another fabulous weekend of conference, how could I not say how grateful I am for the leaders of this church. We are so blessed as a people to have the guidance of a Prophet of God and the leadership of the Quoram of the Twelve and all the other general authorities that have been called to serve us.
Can I pick a favorite talk from this weekend? I think I can...it would be Elder Holland with his amazing insights into the saviors atoning sacrifice.
