gratitude day 7, prophets

In keeping on with our 25 Days of Gratitude, we picked this yesterday, which was very fitting for the Sabbath:



We, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe there is a current prophet set up to lead the church just like in Jesus' time.  We get to hear him and all of his apostles speak (12, just as in Jesus' time) twice a year during our semi-annual General Conference.

So I picked a couple of talks from President Monson and one of the members of the Seventy that seemed applicable for my little brood, and we read the articles aloud.
