Come Listen to a Prophet's Voice

Twice a year I and countless others (pretty much everyone in the world) have the opportunity to come together and listen to inspiring and comforting words. Where exactly do we hear these inspiring words? I'm glad you asked. It's called General Conference. Twice a year the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a conference that is broadcasted all over the world. The conference consists of four sessions, two on Saturday and two on Sunday, where Apostles of the Lord and other leaders in the church share inspiring messages and insights. They pray long and hard to know what to speak about for this conference and prepare to share their message with all of the world. It's this wonderful opportunity we've been given to listen to people who have been inspired by God (which is a really amazing thing).
Often times when listening to these talks I think "hey, that was totally for me" or "wow, I really needed to hear that." The beauty of General Conference is that it can apply to anyone. Male or female, young or old, member or non-member. Everyone can be inspired by listening to the words spoken at conference. And really, who doesn't like to listen to inspiring words that create good feelings?
I know that God has restored His gospel again on this Earth today and that He calls prophets in our day and age to help guide us. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet who receives revelation from God and I'm grateful for the opportunity that I have to hear him and other Apostles and authorities speak this coming weekend.
So yeah, get ready to be inspired and uplifted by General Conference. Come listen to a prophet's voice. Come and see just how powerful and wonderful God's love is for each and every one of us.
