I liked Elder Maynes’s talk because he talked about trials, and I have something hard in my life—type 1 diabetes. I have to be careful what I eat, prick my finger to test my blood sugar, and get insulin every time I eat. And when my blood sugars are low, I feel tired and confused. Sometimes I wish that I could pray to Heavenly Father and say, “Heavenly Father, can you just take the diabetes away?” But He knows I can handle this trial.

This year my family decided to attend conference live for the first time. We came to Utah from Mexico. I loved when President Monson spoke. I liked his story about the man who was sick and couldn’t see or hear but managed to tell President Monson that he wanted a priesthood blessing.

I liked seeing the children from all over the world, and I liked watching the organ being played when the choir sang. I was really glad I got to see the prophet.

I really liked President Eyring’s talk because it reminded me that our goal is to live with Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father again. I pray every night for help to go to the celestial kingdom. When he talked about this, I felt like he was talking to me, and it made me happy inside.

My favorite talk in general conference was President Monson’s. I liked how he talked about how much he loved his wife and missed her. This talk made me think about when my great-grandma was in the hospital and how I felt when she died. President Monson said he knows that he will see his wife again someday. I am thankful I will get to see my great-grandma again. I am thankful that families can be together forever and that President Monson can see his wife again.
