2014 October General Conference Quote Cards

Conference Quote CardsHere are the 2014 October General Conference Quote Cards. It’s taken a week longer to get them posted than I would have liked. I’ve been working on them in the early mornings (the time change here in Hawaii has been a struggle) and between trips to the glorious beaches with my family! There were so many good things shared it became a challenge knowing what to cut to fit everything. I hope what has been included helps YOU. I add my testimony and witness of Jesus Christ to these faithful servants, leaders, apostles and prophets of God. Cards are organized in alphabetical order by first name. You will see there are additional cards for those that gave messages in multiple sessions of Conference, including Priesthood and Women’s Meetings. Download in .jpg or .pdf formats.

Activity Suggestion: Gather your family, or in an upcoming church class or activity, discuss what was taught at General Conference. Have each person choose a card, then invite participation through reading quotes, expressing feelings and sharing testimony. Consider asking questions to help class members think deeply, creating meaningful discussion.

Printing Tip: Download Conference Quote Cards from all sessions (.jpeg) by dragging each image to desktop or clicking on it. For for a larger file size, choose (.pdf) versions below. I submit the .jpeg images to Costco Photo to have them printed on photo paper (4×6) for easy reading. I keep them in a simple, plastic sleeve photo album that fits inside most scripture bags (see example).

Answers through General Conference

facebook-GCWhy is there so much suffering? Does life have a purpose? How can I be a better person?

Have you ever found yourself asking these questions? Find answers through General Conference. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf teaches that if you think of some questions before general conference, the Lord can speak to you through His prophets and apostles during conference.  As a family or class, discuss what you would like to learn more about, either individually or together.  (For example: How can I strengthen my testimony of Joseph Smith?  How can I fix a problem at school or with friends?) On a piece of paper or in your journal, write down your questions.  Before conference begins think and pray about these questions.  Listen carefully during conference (it may be helpful to take notes), then write how the Lord—through Church leaders—answered your questions.  Come listen to living prophets this Saturday and Sunday, October 4th and 5th.  Watch online (LDS.org, YouTube, Mormon Channel, BYUtv) or at a local meeting house.

President Uchtdorf also suggests three basic concepts that may help us to better receive, remember, and apply the words spoken by the Lord’s servants during conference:

dieter-f-uchtdorf-large1. Members of the Church are entitled to personal revelation as they listen to and study the inspired words spoken at general conference.

As you prepare for general conference, I invite you to ponder questions you need to have answered.  For example, you might yearn for direction and guidance by the Lord regarding challenges you are facing.  Answers to your specific prayers may come directly from a particular talk or from a specific phrase.  At other times answers may come in a seemingly unrelated word, phrase, or song.  A heart filled with gratitude for the blessings of life and an earnest desire to hear and follow the words of counsel will prepare the way for personal revelation.

2. Don’t discount a message merely because it sounds familiar.

Prophets have always taught by repetition; it is a law of learning.  You will hear repetition in themes and doctrines in general conference.  Let me reassure you: this is not due to a lack of creativity or imagination.  We continue to 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 acted upon 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 points the 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 are ahead (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 the Lord 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 continues to 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 delivered by His chosen servants.
