That was a close one!
A few weeks ago Ryan and I were asked to give sacrament talks in our new ward. We were set to speak yesterday and had to choose a conference talk from the Saturday morning (me) and Saturday afternoon (Ryan) sessions of conference to speak on. Needless to say, I had so many options when choosing a talk. One of which was the talk given by Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the Presidency of the Seventy. His talk was entitled "That Your Burdens May Be Light" and was very inspirational. I ended up choosing Elder Bednar's talk instead (More Diligent and Concerned at Home) and boy am I glad I did! Not only because Elder Bednar's talk was GREAT, but because who should happen to be IN SACRAMENT MEETING WITH US???!!! Why Elder Clayton himself, of course! Can you imagine?! "And now I am going to elaborate on Elder Clayton's talk (Hope I copied this down correctly)" Yikes! I'm starting to get nervous. This is NOT the first time a General Authority has been on the stand with me when I have spoken in sacrament meeting. I've got to up my game.
