This is a special weekend for more than one reason. First of all, Sunday is Easter, and we as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rejoice on this day in the glorious message that Jesus lives. He was resurrected, and because of that, all who have ever lived or will live on this earth will also be resurrected. Truly, death is not the end. A glorious message, indeed.

In addition, we look forward to our General Conference — two days of instruction from prophets and apostles and other Church leaders. We proclaim that God speaks to prophets today just as He did in ancient times, and General Conference allows us to hear His word through them and through other inspired leaders. They prayerfully prepare for weeks before this Conference for inspiration on what to share. As we prayerfully prepare for and listen to these messages, we find guidance and answers for our lives.

For those who are interested in learning more about General Conference, see here. We invite you to join us in listening to these broadcasts in the comfort of your own home. If you have an internet connection, you can access live video and audio feeds here. Audio feeds are in dozens of languages. Live broadcasts will be at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. MST on Saturday and Sunday, April 3 and 4. Video and audio archives will also be available after the broadcasts on that same page.

For those who plan on listening to Conference and have young children, you might be interested in Conference resources provided by the Church, including a notebook/packet, coloring pages, “Conference Squares” and online activities to help children prepare for conference. (This site includes online activities to help children prepare for Conference as well.)

Other resources and packets can be found here, here, and here.
