So I ran to get some middle eastern food and now we’re back. Here are the best tweets from the Spring 2017 Saturday Afternoon session of LDSConf.
1. This reminder that President Uchtdorf had a Super Hard Job
— Tonya C (@TisforTonya) April 1, 2017
I can barely pronounce my own last name tbh.
2. This Truth Bomb
Shouting "opposed" during #ldsconf says a lot more about you then the church.
— Travis Fantina (@tfantina) April 1, 2017
The church doesn’t whisk you out for shouting your opinion because we’re not voting on who should lead we’re saying we’ll support those who are leading.
3. These Mints
— Alice Cannon (@alicejanecannon) April 1, 2017
Really though, I want some mints now.
4. This Reminder that We Must Walk the Walk
Faith is a catalyst. Without works and without righteous living faith is dead. #ldsconf
— DebbieCranberryfries (@cranberryfries) April 1, 2017
Are there cultural changes that need to happen among church members? FOR SURE! But we still have to be obedient to God’s commandments.
5. This Important Clue to How We Should Treat Others
There should be no disparity between the kindness we show our enemies and the kindness we show our friends. Elder Robert D. Hales #LDSconf

Lucky for me I’m a jerk to everyone…that’s how this works right?
6. This Shakeup
— Scott (@scottmgower) April 1, 2017
Elder Holland talked about the importance of diversity in the church, the need to reject cultural stereotypes, the evil of income inequality, the pain of mental illness and the room we have in the church for people of all sexual preferences…WOW. I could do a Twitter list on this talk alone.
7. This Reminder That We Must Be All In
— Jeff Barton (@YesUm135) April 1, 2017
Put all of your chips in. We’re going for the whole pot.
8. This Important Talk About Language
— Joel Hilton (@786Joel) April 1, 2017
The Gospel is our mother language. Let’s make sure we don’t forget how to use it.
9. This Reminder That We’re In The World Not Of The World
"Overcoming the world is remembering, even when we are discouraged, the times we have felt the love and light of the Savior."#LDSConf
— Christi Williams (@ChristiWilliams) April 1, 2017
We’re a peculiar people and that’s because we aren’t worldly.
10. This Tweet That’s Totes Goals…or Something
— Lexi (@leximusmaximus1) April 1, 2017
*Takes Breath* GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!
11. This Cheesy Joke
— ëmmâ mātï (@emmalee_egirl) April 1, 2017
It probably got the biggest laugh so far.
12. This Reminder That The Living Christ is Worth Reading
Clearly I need to go over "The Living Christ." It's the second or third time it's been mentioned today. #ldsconf
— Tim Costello (@mighty_tim) April 1, 2017
The Proclamation to the Family is good but let’s not forget the Living Christ here.
