Elder Holland's talk from April's general conference. We got off on a little side trail while we considered what role the adversary may have in disrupting our preparations for attending church. Which, of course, led to this.

It wouldn't be so bad, except she's a Great Pyrenees — and she makes it look like we've got a polar bear head mounted on our fence!

"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou has laid him, and I will take him away.
"Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

"For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me doing; I was a stranger, and ye took me in;
"Naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
"Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
"When was we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

General conference was, as always, amazing! So many outstanding messages, and so many calls to action — repent comes to mind — that it's going to take a while to sort it all out! A couple that stood out for me were Elder Stevenson's talk on making your own game plan, Elder Held's analogy of using two eyes to see a more complete perspective, Elder Renlund's analogy of fire, and Elder Villar's brother taking him on errands for vacation.
I've got my sketch notes compiled into to one easy document available for download. It makes a handy reference for review (or an easy Family Home Evening lesson!). Feel free to print it and share it! And go back and revisit the talks you may have missed. It was awesome!

But, hey! If you want to impress your family and friends with your preparedness for general conference, now is the time to download the Spring 2019 General Conference Activity Packet from your friendly neighborhood Ward Cartoonist! And it's available in multiple languages — and all for free! What a deal!
And it's not too early to think about what you should include in your Easter package to your favorite missionary. May I humbly suggest I Miss My Dork Dot, Volume 1 of Sis. Kerry Jo's Mission Blog, or the ever-popular That's One Small Step for a Mom, One Giant Leap for Missionarykind. a collection of missionary-themed cartoons by yours truly. You could consider adding one of Arie Van De Graf's books as well! (I'd shill more for other LDS cartoonists as well if I had the links).
One more thing (But wait! There's more!)... stay tuned this weekend for my General Conference Sketch Notes. Be sure to watch, and as Pres. Nelson says, buckle up!
