I'm So Excited For General Conference!

This weekend is General Conference for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I've explained what General Conference is a few times before, but I think that this Video created by Third Hour, explains a little bit better than I did.

Watching this video gave me all the emotions of watching General Conference. I laughed, I cried and I've had this song stuck in my head for days now.



When we are watching General Conference, there are moments where we smile, because of the fun we have, because of the stories that are told, because of the love that we feel. There are moments where we laugh because of things that the Apostles say, stories that we know they will tell and love when they do (Elder Uchtdorf loves his Planes!).

There are moments where we cry, where we cry along with those who give talks, where we cry because we remember how much we are loved, what we are here for and a hundred other reasons besides. There are moments where words fail us, where we realise that our lives aren't quite on the right track and that we suddenly know how to correct our course.

We take our questions to General Conference, big and small and we pray that we may receive the answers. We listen to the talks with our hearts and our minds open, so that we may feel or hear the still small voice of the Spirit whispering to us.

Sometimes when we hear or feel the answers in the talks given at Conference, the subject of the talk we were listening to isn't especially related to the problem we are facing or the question we are puzzling over, but we understand how the words said could apply to us, how they apply to our questions and to our problems. And now we know the answers.

I'm so excited for General Conference!
