Testimony building: Sharing memories, lessons from general conference
General conference can be an intense eight to 10 hours of instruction, testimony and inspiration from President Thomas S. Monson and other leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
But what do listeners remember?
Lessons from general conference are sometimes felt immediately, while others take longer to sink in. Other insights come from the reassuring peace of the Spirit.
For others, it's their frame of mind and concentrating on the talks shared as their testimonies are strengthened.
Still, a general conference that resonates could be one where it was attended live with many others in the Conference Center or Tabernacle.
Or maybe it's one that was simply heard by a radio.
Mormon Times asked its readers to share memories of general conference, whether a specific talk or an experience, that build testimonies.
