Scripture Share: Any Thoughts?

Well, I was going to do a little research and more thinking of my own before I posted this but it looks like it may not happen soon and so I thought I would gain some insights from all of you. Do you have any thoughts, ideas, or quotes that would help me to understand the bolded phrase in the verse below? It really stuck out to me when reading this time through but I have yet to come to any conclusions concerning what it means. I'd love to hear what you have to say about this verse. Thanks!

Mosiah 14: 5
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Lifting Burdens: The Atonement of Jesus Christ

"Apostles of Jesus Christ testify of the Savior’s power to heal, change, and purify us through His Atonement."

General Conference FHE

Well, General Conference has past and now it is time to whip into action and make some changes and apply all of that enthusiastic energy and desire and motivation we all felt just a week ago. Has it already started to die for anyone? Have you already forgotten all of the things you were so excited to implement and do better in? I find it so easy to forget or to lose motivation to actually DO the things we felt and were taught.

Some conferences I do well at reading most, if not all, of the talks and other conferences, well...I may not read much of any of them at all. This time around our little family has decided to make our Family Home Evenings very much centered on the General Conference talks and I am excited.

We're making a schedule to help us along but we will not be hitting all of the talks (at least not during FHE) due to the number of weeks available before next conference. On my husband and my weeks to be in charge of the FHE lesson we will focus on a talk. The person in charge must read it ahead of time and share their thoughts or a quote or two as well as something to draw the attention of our 2 1/2 year old. Hopefully whoever is not in charge will have read the entire talk that week as well but we are not making it a requirement. Then on our sons weeks we will have a lesson that comes from The Friend magazine, which he really seems to enjoy.

So that is our plan. What is your plan to keep the conference messages alive until next April arrives?
