This is NOT an official transcript or publication of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I post here in no official capacity. These are merely my poor personal notes of ideas and thoughts from Regional Conference that I share with the world to bear my own personal testimony of the Lord, His restored Gospel, and the way I see things.
We went to the Stake Center even though our Stake was requested to go to the Conference Center. This was mainly at my wife's urging and I thought it was fine. We didn't use up gas and pollute the valley, nor did we risk the chance of not getting in like happened at last regional conference.
Oh, and these notes are from my smart phone, so they are briefer search-and-peck and may contain weird auto-text words I will attempt to edit out:
