A friend of mine came up with the challenge to read, listen or watch each talk from the April 2013 General Conference before the October 2013 General Conference happens. I loved this idea and immediately decided to join in and participate. Listening or watching ONE conference talk a day really isn’t that much. And I think it will be wonderful to have these words in my heart before we hear the new words in October. I think it will be interesting to be able to knowingly compare the talks and find the similarities and differences from each conference as I will have just listened to those words very recently.
I thought you might like to join me in this challenge. To make it easy for you to find each talk, I will be posting one each day for the next 36 days. There are 36 talks and we only have 39 days until General Conference. I hope this is a blessing to you as I am sure it will bless me to listen to the words of our leaders–the modern day Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His Prophet.
Here is the video for Day 1. President Thomas S. Monson is the speaker, and this is pretty short, but delightful. The name of his talk is Welcome to Conference. Enjoy!
I urge you to be attentive and receptive to the messages which we will hear. That we may do so is my prayer.
