Why I Listen to Conference

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. 
E mea melo au na te Ekalesia a Iesu Mesia i te Feia Mo'a i te Mau Mahana Hopea Nei. 
Je suis membre de l'Eglise de Jesus-Christ des Saints des Derniers Jours. 

I will willingly spend eight hours this weekend listening to talks. Really though, eight hours. Imagine taking an eight hour ethics, philosophy, and history class.  EXCEPT you enjoy it. You take notes. You reread your notes. At the end of the eight hour lecture you go back and listen to all of the lesson multiple times. 

That is general conference. 

Think TED Talks, but with every talk having an emphasis on how to make your life better, happier, and full of more sunshine and rainbows than you can handle. 

You should watch some here. I highly suggest this if you are missing some hope or courage in your life, the things these men have told us are merely to help us be the best possible people we can be.

Don't forget about tomorrow also!

Mo's Ultimate Family-Friendly Halloween Movie LIst

October is my favorite month of the year. The leaves are yellow and orange, the air is finally cool enough for scarves and sweaters, and my favorite holiday is on the 31st. Halloween!  It's never too soon to start ringing in the Halloween cheer! Get into the spirit with Mo's Ultimate Halloween Movie list-the family friendly version. 
10. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
     Who doesn't love Charlie Brown? This is the most tame Halloween movie for our littlest viewers.
9. Halloweentown
    Disney Channel does Halloween right. This is the greatest made-for-TV movie ever created. 
8. Casper
    The FRIENDLY ghost. Who doesn't like ghosts that can help them? 
7. The Little Vampire
    Kids. Vampires. Enough said. 
6. Ghostbusters
    Who you gonna call? In the MTC we have vacuums the missionaries have to wear. We call them the Ghostbusters. Halloween is everyday!
5. Adam's Family
    Slightly very odd. Especially compared to the previous movies. 
4. Beetlejuice 
    Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlej----- Don't finish that, you'll probably regret it. 
3. Corpse Bride
    Tim Burton is my favorite movie genius of all time. Corpse Bride has one of the happiest ending of any of his movies. I feel odd putting happy and Time Burton in the same paragraph. 
2. Hocus Pocus
    Binx is waiting for you to watch this movie. Just don't light any candles. 
1. The Nightmare Before Christmas 
    This is my favorite movie of all time. It's also a half-Christmas movie so I'm justified in watching it non-stop October 1st until January 1st. (Let's be honest, I probably watch this weekly. It's that good)

There are only 29 days until Halloween. If we watch one movie a day we can see all of them twice, and the best, The Nightmare Before Christmas, three times. 

Happy Haunting!
