What is General Conference? As the quote from Robert D. Hales above says “In conference we can receive the word of the Lord meant just for us.” This is true. If you listen to conference there is always something that you can take from it that you really needed to hear. This was the first year ever that I actually listened to both the Saturday and Sunday sessions. What I learned was I was missing out by not listening to all the sessions. Sure I have the opportunity to read in our church magazine the Ensign but it is so much greater to hear the words being spoken. The people who are chosen to speak have all been inspired by the Lord to tell us what we need to hear. If you missed out on conference or would like to hear the words of these wise people then you should go and read or listen here.
You all have heard of Adam, Noah and Moses as prophets of old. But have you heard that today there is a prophet in our time and his name Thomas S. Monson. Yes truly he is just the same as those prophets of old. Why would our Heavenly Father keep a prophet from us? The answer is He wouldn’t. He loves us today as He loved those in the past. Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today and he receives revelation from our Heavenly Father of what to tell us. The prophets of the past did the same thing and yet just as there are those who did not believe then there are those who do not believe now. I am here to tell you they are all our prophets and I believe that with all my heart.
