General Conferences

Every six months (April and October) the LDS Church holds a General Conference in Salt Lake City.

These all important conferences are filled with speeches from the General Authorities (prophet and apostles, as well as Relief Society president, etc) who deliver inspirational reminders of how church members should behave. The main theme each time they do this is to declare their prophet Joseph Smith was chosen of God to make salvation available to mankind.

Because the conferences are broadcasted worldwide Mormon ward buildings are locked tight and their typical Sunday services are cancelled.  Members are strongly encouraged to either attend the conference or stay home and watch it on their televisions.

The conference talks are subsequently made available on their website within a few days as well as printed in their monthly publication of the Ensign.

We typically highlight one or two of the talks each time they’re held so below you’ll find a selection of what we’ve found interesting!
