It was a wonderful General Conference weekend! If you missed any or all of the conference, or just want to enjoy the messages again, there are multiple ways to do that.
See the April 2017 General Conference link for videos of all the talks on the LDS.org General Conference page. You can also listen to all the music from the General Conference sessions (such as the hymn that inspired the title of this post, “Rejoice the Lord is King!”).
You can also listen to/watch the April 2017 General Conference via the following links:
LDS General Conference YouTube channel
Mormon Channel YouTube channel
Transcripts will be available in a couple of days, and conference files will be available for the Gospel Library app shortly as well. (You can already access the Women’s Session on the Gospel Library App.)
We would love to hear what stood out to you from conference messages.
Messages about love, light, building on the simple foundation of the gospel plan and principles, faith not fear, and staying centered in Christ are some of the messages rolling around in my mind and heart. After hearing President Monson talk about the Book of Mormon, we started the book over as a family. I’m more committed to focusing on the good in the world and using social media in that positive way.
It was also exciting to hear about five new temples announced.
I loved the messages but what stood out was the lack of female messengers at the pulpit. Saturday was 6 hours of Priesthood session without a single female face! Excited about the new RS presidency and hope to hear more from them soon.
You always do such a great job of spreading the news of the gospel. I think I loved President Monson’s Priesthood and conference message the best of all. It was short but so powerful. He said what needs to be said the most in the best possible way.
I of course, alwqys enjoy all the messages but was so happy he was able to speak.
Blessing and hugs for this one!
After our mission, I may try to write something about it here. There’s just no time now. I have always enjoyed all you do on here.
There are many, many ways our female leaders have a voice. Please don’t limit your “measures” to just General Conference. General Conference is important, yes, but there are many opportunities to plug into what our female leaders are saying if you look.
For example, the Relief Society co-sponsors BYU Women’s Conference, which is led by mostly women, with many women speakers on a variety of topics that cover a lot more than is covered at general conference time. That the Church would dedicate two full days of BYU campus time just to the women is remarkable.
We always feature the transcripts of BYU Women’s Conference when they become available. Stay tuned or keep an eye on https://womensconference.byu.edu/transcripts for more.
ALSO, you can hear what our new Relief General Presidency said at BYU Women’s Conference right now. Just go to lds.org on the Relief Society page.
And did you hear the recording of Sister Bingham at the UN?
