This week was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ General Conference. This conference occurs every six months and is one of my favorite times of the year. I love hearing from church leaders and being able to be uplifted. The things that they talk about are always so relevant to the times and things going on in the world.
Every conference there seems to be a theme. So far, only two sessions in I feel like the theme has been family and that we need to serve everyone around us. One quote I liked was “thee lift me, and I’ll lift thee and we will ascend together.” Today’s world it is ever important that we help one another to get through, this is why the family is so important.
I know that these men and women who deliver these messages are called of God. I encourage everyone to listen to and study their words. Whether you are a member of this Church or not. I know that the gospel and the messages that center on Christ can change lives, because they have changed mine. I know that this Church really is Christ’s church here on earth. It is a refuge from the troubled world that we live in, and brings peace to one’s soul.
I am going to try and make this General Conference different. I am going to review often the talks that were given. So that I won’t have to wait every six months to enjoy the blessings that come from listening to the words of the Lord.
