Come, Listen to a Prophet's Voice

I was blessed to be able to attend the General Relief Society meeting of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday night in the Conference Center. It was an amazing experience. (If you missed it, click here to watch/read/download the messages and music.) The building, with over 21,000 female attendees, fell silent in reverence and respect the moment our beloved prophet walked into the room. My heart filled with testimony from the Spirit that Thomas S. Monson truly is the Lord's mouthpiece here on the earth. What a blessing it was to hear talks and wisdom from those whom he has called through the Lord's inspiration. I was edified and uplifted and certainly learned a lot about ways I can improve.

In our Sacrament services on Sunday, the focus was preparing our hearts to hear the prophet, apostles, general authorities, and other chosen leaders speak during the upcoming General Conference. During Conference, you can learn about the basics of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as receive many answers to questions that you may be pondering deep within your heart. I know that as I have prepared my heart and spirit to listen and apply the messages of conference, my life has been richly blessed and I have found wisdom and answers and guidance that I desperately needed.

My invitation to each of you is simple: Come, listen to a prophet's voice. Find out for yourself the words that the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, would have you hear. Invite your friends, neighbors, family members, strangers, and other loved ones to listen and pray. Spread the good news that there is a living prophet on Earth who desires to share the message of salvation to everyone in the world, and all are invited to hear and feel of his love for the Savior. Come, listen to a prophet's voice.

This week, my husband and I are trying to incorporate more spiritual things into our daily routines as we try and prepare for this weekend. We will have gospel music and hymns playing in our home softly all day. We will pray for people to invite to watch Conference with us. We will share our testimonies with one another and read previous Conference talks. We plan to limit all activities this weekend to only spiritual and uplifting things, and not recreation or entertainment.

What are some ways that you are preparing yourself for General Conference?
