I love General Conference! I love how much inspiring personal direction the Lord gives me. When I take time to prepare and to truly hear Him, I come away every six months when Conference ends with a renewed determination to do better. And to BE better.
The Blessings of General Conference
Elder Robert D. Hales once said, “The greatest blessings of general conference come to us after the conference is over. Remember the pattern recorded frequently in scripture: We gather to hear the words of the Lord and then we return home to live them.”
The 2 days we have when General Conference is broadcast are just the beginning! If we simply listen and then go about our lives without making changes, we are missing out on the greatest blessings that Conference has to offer us. Now that Conference is over, it’s time for us to APPLY what we’ve learned to help us BECOME what our Father in Heaven wants for us to become.

I’ve included a printable of some of my favorite quotes from these sessions to help you remember the words we heard during Conference. I’ve made these into cute little minis that you can share on the go! Because these messages are best when we apply them to all areas of our lives.
Here are some fun ways to use these printable Conference quotes:
- Deliver them to your ministering sisters. (I promise they won’t be mad if you add some cookies or a little treat, too.) *wink
- Put them into a lunchbox
- Stick them in a backpack pocket
- Tape one to the mirror
- Put them in your teenager’s or spouse’s car
- Print some extras for your kids to pass around to their friends! They can stick them in lockers, backpacks, or desks
- Leave them on your children’s pillows to be found at the end of the day
- Switch them out from time to time so that the messages of Conference truly last for the next 6 months
May the following months bring you joy as you study and apply the words from Conference.
Studying the words from Conference is an ongoing task. As we continue to study, the words of the Lord become part of who we are as we strive to become who He wants us to be. To help you study the words from this Conference, check out my Conference Talks journal. This guided journal is a fantastic way for you to continue to study the words of the prophets and complete the challenges that President Nelson issued. And most importantly, it will become a place you can record your own personal direction that the Spirit give you as you study.
