“Show and Tell: Conference Edition,” Friend, May 2015, 6–7
I had the chance to sing in the women’s session choir. I invited a nonmember friend to come watch. When all of the people started coming in I felt nervous, but the Spirit really calmed me down. I was also not feeling great because of a hurt finger and was super hungry, but I still made it, and it was fun! One cool thing was that I was a few feet away from the prophet. I loved listening to all of the speakers. All the choir practice was worth it.

My favorite talk was by Elder Clayton. I liked his story about the girl who survived. I thought that was really cool that she walked so far and was so young. The girl looked around and saw a light. Elder Clayton related that to the gospel. It is kind of like looking for the iron rod.

I liked Elder Renlund’s talk. It had interesting stories in it. I liked one of his sayings: “If we don’t try, we’re just latter-day sinners; if we don’t persevere, we’re latter-day quitters; and if we don’t allow others to try, we’re just latter-day hypocrites. As we try, persevere, and help others to do the same, we are true Latter-day Saints.” I want to be better and keep living the gospel every day.

President Uchtdorf’s talk on grace was my favorite. Before I listened to it, I didn’t know what God’s grace was or how it affects us. I learned that it is through grace that I can repent and become clean so that I can live with Him again as long as I have faith. I like how President Uchtdorf said that Satan has no lasting power. It makes me really happy to know that through God’s grace, I can overcome my weaknesses and become my best self!
