With October General Conference fast approaching, I want to return to a talk given in April that I have continued to think about. Elder K.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites people around the world to participate in general conference twice a year.

Every April and October, we have the privilege of hearing messages of inspiration and guidance at general conference. It is intended to be a revelatory experience as we learn from living prophets and apostles through the influence of the Holy Ghost. If you prepare, you will get more out of your conference experience.
