For those who don't know, the "general conference" of the Mormon (LDS) church happens twice a year where 30 or so church leaders prepare short sermons (about 12 hours total) on various gospel topics, usually sharing interesting experiences from their service, applying scriptures to issues in our day, and explaining various principles and doctrines. These sermons are then used in Sunday lessons, church magazines, and other activities throughout the following 6 months.
A quote from a talk I was listening to this morning really stuck out to me and is a great example of the simple, powerful teachings that are shared (and that I wanted to share!):
"I have learned a truth that has been repeated so frequently in my life that I have come to know it as an absolute law. It defines the way obedience and service relate to the power of God. When we obey the commandments of the Lord and serve His children unselfishly, the natural consequence is power from God—power to do more than we can do by ourselves. Our insights, our talents, our abilities are expanded because we receive strength and power from the Lord."
-Elder Richard G. Scott
