Day 22: May 2009 Ensign: LDS General Conference Addresses

I finished a magazine called the Ensign-a religious magazine for all who want to know about worldwide topics from an LDS perspective...This one was specific to the LDS General Conference. Every six months, the members gather to hear from their leaders. The Conference can be heard and seen through satellite and computer technologies and is shown also on TV and is live in Salt Lake City in the Conference Center that houses thousands of people. The Conference is not exclusive to members-anyone who wishes to see it can see the general sessions live if they have tickets, or they can watch it on TV in the first week of April and the first week of October...There are four general sessions (that means they're for everyone) one session for men only, and included in the Ensign is the women's session, but that one is usually the week or so before the big Conference. The May and November magazines have the all talks given from the previous month. So, really, this is an up to date forecast for things we need to know now; issues and obstacles that are prevalent in the present day will be addressed by these leaders. They have a very large and long reaching responsibility-They guide us on how to deal with the issues of the here and now. If you want to know more, let me know-I would be glad to be of service.

  1. Kara! Isn't it awesome! I just finished Elder Uchtdorf's talk on Patience. It is so inspiring!
    "Patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can-- working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!"
