Mormons believe in living prophets, LDS general conference prophets speak

General Conference is always a highlight for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Twice a year, we hear from prophets and apostles and other general leaders and officers of the Church. As a former Church president, Harold B. Lee said, we as Mormons are encouraged to have the words from General Conference “be the guide to [our] walk and talk during the next six months. These are the important matters the Lord sees fit to reveal to this people in this day.”

Listening to this General Conference highlights can both give a good review of some of the key messages from General Conference for those who were able to listen. For those wondering about Mormonism, it gives a glimpse of what Mormon beliefs are, and about what Mormon life is like. We believe in Jesus Christ, in His and Heavenly Father’s love for all of us. Messages of hope are threaded throughout. Some of the reasons for the emphasis on family in Mormon doctrine are touched upon. Invitations for all of us to become better people are throughout the messages.

We are grateful to share and know that God speaks to prophets today, just as He did in ancient times. And we are grateful to know that God will speak to us individually to know how best to implement and follow their words.
