LDS General Conference Wonderful Again

What a delicious retreat this weekend watching the General Conference broadcast of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!  Gone were the worries and stresses of regular TV programming and media mockery.

Instead, beautiful music from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir lifted and inspired the soul.  Wonderful talks by leaders of the Church, including the Prophet and Apostles, filled the soul with joy, gratitude, and hope.

4 new temples were announced.  When I was young there were a dozen.  Now there are 150 temples dotting the land world-wide.  What a marvel!  So much great work being done.

One of my favorite memes:

Want To Feel Better?

You don’t even have to feel down.  You don’t HAVE to be wondering what’s wrong in your life.  No need to be worried about the state society and the world are in.

Whether you are on top of the world or not.

You will always feel better when you tune in to the LDS semi-annual, worldwide General Conference!  And it starts in about 2 hours.  But…

In the meantime, or anytime, you can go and watch previous conferences and feel the same uplifting and joyful feelings that you do when you watch it happen live.

This is another great blessing we have available to us from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).  It is proof that God, your Heavenly Father, loves you and all His children and does not leave us to wander alone and unsure through life.

In fact, it is quite the opposite.  It is a feast for the soul!  A veritable smorgasbord of hope, joy, peace, comfort, and love that will always leave you a better person that before.  Guaranteed.

God loves His children and has given us so much good in the world.  And today we have more goodness and happiness to surround ourselves with than any other time throughout the history of the world!  Although we live in a tough time in many ways, we also live in the best of times in more ways.

“How?” you may ask.

Come and see.  You can participate at any time.  Try it and see.  🙂

Did you catch any of the LDS General Conference over the weekend?  It was absolutely inspiring!


You can watch it, or any part of it, at http://www.lds.org/general-conference/sessions/2013/04?lang=eng.  I hear they’re setting up a site where you can catch any of the past General Conferences: gc.lds.org.


Meanwhile, maybe we can discuss some of the talks that were given.


The music was also wonderful.  The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang for 3 of the sessions.  They always do such a heartfelt and touching performance.  Students from BYU sang at the other general session.  They were wonderful as well.


At the close of conference, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang, “Come, Come Ye Saints“:


“Come, come ye saints, no toil nor labor fear


but with joy wend your way.


‘tho hard to you this journey may appear,


grace shall be as your day.


’tis better far for us to strive


our useless cares from us to drive.


Do this and joy, your hearts will swell,


All is well.  All is well.”


Words to live by.  🙂



Receive Comfort, Hope, and Inspiration!

This is a very special weekend!  And you can participate in it.  You can receive comfort, hope, and inspiration!


Does that intrigue you?


Who wouldn’t like to receive these things?


This weekend you have the opportunity to hear from the living prophet and apostles!  Just as Jesus Christ organized His church with prophets and apostles, He has restored His church and given us prophets and apostles to lead us in our day.  The name of His church is  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and He is at its head.


He leads this church.  He directs the affairs of this church.  He speaks to us through His prophet, apostles, and other church leaders.  But He also speaks to us directly, in our minds and in our hearts.  This is personal revelation and anyone who desires it may ask for it.  You have probably heard and felt His presence in your life.


To be a part of this wonderful, spiritual feast, you can tune in to KBYU on TV, or go to http://www.lds.org and look for General Conference.  Don’t worry, you can’t miss it.  They’ve already got it set up so it’s the main link on the page.


Conference is broadcast on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 10:00am-12:00pm MDT and from 2:00pm-4:00pm MDT, and on Sunday, April 7, 2013 at the same times.  These are not repeats of the same conference, but several sessions of the same conference.  Each will have several inspired speakers from among the church leadership, including President Thomas S. Monson, our beloved prophet.


The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will also be singing during the conferences.  And the Saturday afternoon session usually features a guest choir made up of children, youth, missionaries, or members from the Salt Lake City area.


Please, come and feast upon the word of God.  Feel His spirit bring you comfort, hope, and inspiration.  It will be worth any time you choose to give it!


Let me know what you think and feel when you participate in this very special event.  🙂
