Elder Ballard Quotes Anna Quindlen

Elder M. Russell Ballard gave a wonderfully beautiful talk this afternoon and I was pleasingly surprised to hear him quote Anna Quindlen about how fast children grow. After I had Jared, a friend gave this book to me as a baby shower gift. Anna's essays are eloquently written and Nick Kelsh's black & white photographs are stunning. The book is inspiring and is an excellent reminder to savor the baby years. And thank you Elder Ballard! Speaking of words of inspiration, I love how he pointed out that some people over-schedule and try to keep up with the Jones's. He reaffirmed everything I already felt (including things like I need to be nicer to my children because they will only be small for so long....). It's just nice to hear it from a prophet's voice.

AMEN! That was my favorite talk today. It's just what I needed. I'm glad someone else was listening and appreciated it too.

That was my favorite talk also (and pretty much the only one I actually heard all of aside from President Monson's at the end due to kid noise), which I guess is ok since its the one I most needed to hear.

That was my favorite talk! I am going to have to get a copy of that book, sounds like one I would enjoy:)
