We all know how hard it is to remember every message of general conference, and I’m confident that we need not be embarrassed if we don’t remember everything. Nevertheless, there are messages in eachgeneral conference given as a gift and a blessing from heaven specifically for our personal life situations. 1. Members of the Church are entitled to personal revelation as they listen to and studythe inspired words spoken at general conference. I invite you to ponder questions you need to have answered. 2.

Let me reassure you: this is not due to a lack of creativity or imagination. We continueto hear messages on similar issues because the Lord is teaching and impressing upon our minds and hearts certain foundational principles of great eternal importance that must be understood and actedupon before we can move on to other things. A wise builder first lays the foundation before erecting the walls and the roof. 3. The words spoken at general conference should be a compass that pointsthe way for us during the coming months. If we listen to and follow the promptings of the Spirit, they will serve as a Liahona, guiding us through the unknown, challenging valleys and mountains that areahead (see 1 Nephi 16). Since the world began, God has raised up prophets who speak the will of heaven to the people of their times. It is our responsibility to listen and then apply the messages theLord provides for us. Our merciful and loving Heavenly Father has not forsaken and will not forsake His children. Today, as well as in times past, He has appointed apostles and prophets. He continuesto reveal His word to them. What a marvelous privilege it is to hear God’s messages for each of us during general conference! Let us prepare well for this great blessing of divine guidance...
