General Conference


“There are places where it is easier to feel the Spirit. Testimony meetings and general conference are some of those places. Certainly temples are another.”

Vicki F. Matsumori, Second Counselor, Primary General Presidency
Helping Others Recognize the Whisperings of the Spirit,” October 2009 General Conference


“Next, identify, with the help of the Holy Ghost, a personal message…[In talks given by the prophets] there will be an idea or a few words that you will feel are spoken just for you. Their interpretation will be yours alone. This is the process of personal revelation. It is simple. Don’t brush it aside.

“Put the message into action. Practice. ‘Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only’ (James 1:22). This is the whole point of revelation. It doesn’t matter how often the Lord chooses to speak to us if we fail to do anything about it.”

Virginia H. Pearce, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Listening with New Ears,” April 1996 General Conference


“Wherever you are, whatever you are wearing, whatever language you are hearing, you are part of a powerful force of joy, peace, and goodness. We are here to rejoice together ‘in every good thing’ (Deut. 26:11).”

Chieko N. Okazaki, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
Rejoice in Every Good Thing,” October 1991 General Conference


“I have read how Relief Society observed its fiftieth year with a great gathering of sisters in this Tabernacle. President Zina D. H. Young addressed the congregation and exclaimed:

‘O that my words could be heard by all people, not only by you my brethren and sisters in this Tabernacle but that they might be heard and understood by all the people of this continent, and not only this continent, but the continents of Asia, Africa, Europe and the islands of the sea.’ ”
“I have come to feel that this may have been more than just a wistful expression of a great former leader. Perhaps it was instead a pleading with the Lord for a time such as this.”
Barbara B. Smith, Relief Society General President
Warmed by the Fires of Their Lives,” April 1984 General Conference
