Every conference is the best conference and all of the talks are inspiring and yet there is always something that speaks to my heart the most. What I really love is how quickly things can be posted so quickly following a conference session.
First the notes of the talks are posted almost immediately after a speaker has completed his or her sermon.
Then shortly thereafter so are the entire video’s for individual speakers.
I have mentioned in social media before, and through the years as things so rapidly have changed, my amazement because 30 years ago, while living in Germany, I had to ask family or friends in Utah to VHS conference (VHS had taken over Beta by then) and snail mail it to me because it would be months and months before getting the talks compiled in magazine form let alone being able to order one on VHS.
Then a few years later DVDs became available but we still had to wait months to get a copy, even once we were stateside but by then cable access became an option as more carriers began to add BYUtv to viewer packages.
Moving forward, the timespan started to narrow until internet viewing became an option but the replay was not available for several weeks. (Funny how impatience in waiting to retrieve information also shortened through the years.)
But now. Now we have almost instant access post conference. It is truly amazing to me.
Okay, enough retro yammering and onto reveal my first watch favorites. Once conference concludes tomorrow and I go back over all of the talks online and then read them, something else will probably speak to me. But for today here is what has touched my soul:
Sharon Eubank – Turn On Your Light
Joy D. Jones – Value Beyond Measure
Neill F. Marriott – Abiding in God and Repairing the Breach
Dieter F. Uchtdorf – Three Sisters
Dallin H. Oaks – Saturday Morning Session
Jeffrey R.Holland – Saturday Morning Session
Russell M. Nelson – Saturday Afternoon Session
