Easter weekend blessed us with General Conference - just one more way to shake off the winter and start over again.
“In my own expression of testimony and gratitude for the messages and meaning of general conference, may I suggest three things these twice-yearly gatherings declare to all the world.
“First, they declare eagerly and unequivocally that there is again a living prophet on the earth speaking in the name of the Lord. And how we
need such guidance! … We all need that word. No one is safe without it…
"Secondly, each of these conferences marks a call to action not only in our own lives but also on behalf of others around us, those who are of our own family and faith and those who are not.
“Lastly, a general conference of the Church is a declaration to all the world that Jesus is the Christ, that He and His Father, the God and Father of us all, appeared to the boy prophet Joseph Smith in fulfillment of that ancient promise that the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth would again restore His Church on earth and [return]
again.” -- Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
