General Conference is upon us again, but before it sneaks up too quickly, let us consider how President Russell M. Nelson’s prophetic words can help us prepare for this weekend and the many conference weekends to come.

In his address, “Christ is Risen; Faith in Him Will Moved Mountains,” President Nelson declared, “To do anything well requires effort. Becoming a true disciple of Jesus Christ is no exception. Increasing your faith and trust in Him takes effort.”

Preparing for General Conference also requires effort. President Nelson’s five suggestions can help us in our quest to be spiritually prepared to Hear Him this Conference weekend.

1) “First, study.”

Studying the last General Conferences talks either online or through the Liahona magazine will bring the spirit and familiarize our hearts with His voice.

2) “Second, choose to believe.”

As we prepare for Conference, we can choose to believe not only in Jesus Christ but in the Apostles and prophets he has chosen to lead His church. President Nelson encouraged, “Study with the desire to believe rather than with the hope that you can find a flaw in the fabric of a prophet’s life or a discrepancy in the scriptures.”

3) “Third, act in faith.”
