Today’s SATURDAY SO WHAT falls on the first day of General Conference, April 2020. There are so many take-home lessons! Today I want to focus on just one: Daily gratitude.

But let’s start preparing for that now. Let’s use the model. THOUGHTS – Envisioning that change already in me – using picture prayers, using …
