I am so looking forward to this weekend. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. A day to listen to the words of prophets and apostles, a day to feel inspired, a day to be uplifted. It will be a day we serve a special breakfast. It will be a day to sit and learn. And it will be followed by another day to do the same.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I look forward to our General Conference sessions each year. We really believe that prophets and apostles speak to us today.
Last week in our ward a man gave a talk about general conference. He related a story about a man who was talking to his neighbor about general conference. The neighbor seemed interested and that got the man excited. The neighbor asked “You really believe God still speaks through prophets and apostles today.” The man exclaimed “Yes we do.” The neighbor than said “That is amazing, what did they say?” In the moment the man couldn’t recollect any specific talk or idea.
I loved this story. It really emphasized how important it is not to just listen to the words of the prophets but also remember what they say so we can apply it.
I look forward to another opportunity to listen to their words because I believe their messages will be inspired by God and will help and heal me in my life. And I will do my best to come to know what they say.
