Elder Ballard

Elder Ballard was at our Stake Conference today. When I got to the Stake Center, 30 minutes early there were NO seats left. I was alone, Ryan at BYU, so I went into the Chapel hoping I would see someone I know and be able to sit in the soft seats. Low and behold Charmay Hill motioned for me to come sit by her. I was in the 3rd row from the front and was able to see Elder Ballard and the other speakers fairly well. I am sure that we have all felt the way I did today that the speaker and content is just for you. Well, it was for me this day. I even was able to have some eye contact with Elder Ballard and felt the Spirit so strong that it brought me to tears several times. As I stuggle with this illness I get very discouraged some days, so today was such an eye opener for me and I felt very privileged and blessed to be there today. Thank you Elder Ballard!


  1. I'm really glad you were able to have that feeling mom! I love you very much!! And I am so glad we get to see you and Dad so often, I missed you while we were in No DAK!


    Love you! Karli

  2. I felt the same way as you at conference. It was great to be so close that we could see him looking at us. It was amazing to be there, wasn't it. Sorry I got so excited that Elder Ballard is an East High guy that we distracted you. :) Got my girls attention, though.
