40 Days and 40 Nights Challenge

I don't know if you got a chance to watch General Conference this weekend, but I did, and I loved it! Two best weekends of the year! I love the way that I always feel better watching conference. It doesn't matter what else is going on in my life, Conference refocuses me and gives me hope for my life. 

Ones that really hit me were Pres. Uchtdorf's, Elder Oaks, Jorg Klebingat's, Elder Holland's, Elder Godoy's. :)

After finishing General Conference at the beginning of this year, I took the 40 days and 40 nights challenge. It's a challenge set up so that you can read (or listen to) all the talks in 40 days (and 40 nights... :) ). 

I really loved this challenge. I usually re-read all of the talks, but I don't usually start right after conference is over, and I don't usually do all of the talks in order. Or every day.

I'll admit, sometimes it was hard. Sometimes I was glad that the talk for that day was really short because I'd been busy and I was tired, but it was amazing! Having all the talks fresh in your mind from conference and then going through them again made them stick more securely in my mind. It's STILL easier for me to remember them 6 months later. 

I especially loved the way that I got new things out of the talks that I didn't get the first time that I heard them. 

This 40 days and 40 nights challenge starts next Monday!

So, will you take the challenge?
