Thoughts on General Conference

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to sit at the feet of prophets and apostles, to feel of their spirit, bask in their testimonies of Jesus, and learn what the Lord would have me do.  What a privilege it is to live in a time when the Church of Jesus Christ has been re-established, a day when the priesthood of God has been restored and when holy temples dot the earth, a time when men and women of faith can partake of the power and joy and blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

I know that the speakers are not given a topic when they are assigned to speak in conference.  They decide through prayer and pasting what the Lord would have them say.  With this in mind, I am always amazed at the cohesive insights and timely counsel we receive.  The following themes seemed to be particularly emphasized in this conference:

  • Trust in the Lord and follow His prophet.
  • The dangers of addiction (particularly pornography).
  • The reality of Satan and his desire to destroy our happiness.
  • The healing power of Christ through His atonement.

These messages are timely and sorely needed in today's secular society.  My faith has been strengthened and I have resolved to be a better person. If you missed any of the conference, you can read or watch any of the talks here.

I invite you to share your thoughts and impressions of conference.  What was your favorite talk?  Why?

My favorite quote from conference is by Elder Uchtdorf:
"We don’t discover humility by thinking less OF ourselves; we discover humility by thinking less ABOUT ourselves."
