General Conference

This past weekend was one of my favorite weekends of the whole year- General Conference!

Twice a year, in April and October, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints holds a conference where members of the church gather for several two-hours sessions to hear inspiration and instruction from the leaders of the church. Members and nonmembers alike are welcome to come to the conference center in Salt Lake City, UT to view the conference live if they have tickets, which are free but must be requested because so many people want to go. General Conference is also broadcasted on several TV and radio stations, and all the messages are available online afterwards.

Learn more about general conference here.

Even if you are not a member of the church, these messages are very beautiful and I can guarantee they will inspire you to be a better person. The men and women that speak are kind, honest, spiritual, and have wonderful integrity. They care very much about their topics and the people they are speaking to, and you will be able to tell that if you watch them.

All of the messages were wonderful. If you are wondering which talks to listen to, some of my favorite speakers are Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, President Thomas S. Monson, President Henry B. Eyring, and President Dieter F. Uchtdorf. Other talks that really stood out to me were by Linda S. Reeves, Elder Richard G. Scott, Elder Claudio D. Zivic, Elder Boyd K. Packer, and Elder Neil L. Anderson. But again, all were amazing.

There is a reason Mormons get so excited for General Conference. It really is wonderful. I promise that if you sincerely listen to the messages and ponder them, you will get a lot out of these words, whether you are a member or not.
