Laurel, my friend did that Christ Centered Easter book and idea a couple of years ago, and I was impressed with the ideas in it, as well. I haven't gotten it myself yet, but probably should. One thing she did that I thought was interesting is to do all the Easter Bunny, egg hunt type stuff on or around the first day of Spring in March, as a celebration of Spring. That left their celebration of Easter totally Christ-centered, since the other stuff was already out of the way. I thought that was an intriguing idea. But she did that day-by-day discussion of the week leading up to the resurrection, too. That book is on my long wish list.
I didn't find any one talk jump out at me this Conference like I have in the past, but I did find overall it was a very uplifting weekend. I have a friend who is unexpectedly pregnant and not married, and she asked if she could watch Conference with us. So we've had some good discussions all weekend as she finds herself seeking more spiritual guidance, and I can see her thinking very carefully and thoroughly about all of her options. I'm very grateful she is comfortable enough with us to allow us the priviledge of being her support system. It was a good weekend.
