General Conference Quotes | April 2017

happy sunday, LetteringKensie SmithComment

I'm not sure exactly when the switch happened, but there was definitely a point where I went from enduring general conference to looking forward to it like Christmas. How incredible is it that we get to spend an entire weekend being uplifted and strengthened by the words of God? 

What's equally incredible is how quickly the messages are available online for us to study further. I for one am especially grateful since my job makes it hard to really focus on the messages I need to hear most. During conference, I post an insane amount of content across a bunch of social media platforms for work. I'm constantly scrolling Twitter looking for the best quotes to share. Since I'm so hyper-focused, it's really hard to glean what the overall messages are so I really look forward to getting to study each talk over the next few months. 

Since I already had my favorite quotes saved, I decided to letter one quote from every talk. My hope is that you will save or print these so that you can see them and be reminded of the messages you heard and felt this conference.

April 2017 General Conference LDS Quote | "We were not placed on this earth to walk alone." -Thomas S. Monson

"We were not placed on this earth to walk alone." Thomas S. Monson

Happy Sunday! I hope you were able to tune into general conference this weekend! Mostly I'm really proud of myself for staying awake the whole time. What was your favorite message shared? I don't know if I have a favorite, but I loved how inclusive and bold the talks were. I'm really excited to be able to study and learn even more from them over the next few months.

It's been a month since General Conference and I have been enjoying reading through the talks and my notes. I couldn't possibly choose a favorite talk, but here are a few of my favorite quotes. There are so many more I could share and mayyybe I'll draw a bunch more. I love General Conference and the opportunity to learn from modern prophets. I learned and felt a lot of different things, including a stronger desire to be a temple worker this fall. (You can find quotes from the Women's Session here.)

Twice a year we have General Conference, where we get to hear from our church leaders during a weekend full of inspiring messages. (Most of the happy quotes I share on Sundays come from General Conference.) This weekend was absolutely what I needed and I heard so many messages that were meant just for me. I feel like I'm still taking it all in and I can't wait to study each talk again and again. I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes from the Women's Session that was last week. It seemed like the whole night was centered on a theme of service and I can't wait to get these happy reminders hung up around my apartment. You can download these prints below and watch the Women's Session here!

live true to the faith! Today I'm giving a talk in church based on this talk from William R. Walker. I'm actually really excited since I love family history and the temple! Preparing for this talk gave me a good opportunity to look at my own family history. My great-great-great grandmother was born in South Africa. When her family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they decided to come to America. The 6-week boat ride was full of terrible storms. One in particular forced the boat up on its side and all the furniture slid and smashed as it hit the side of the boat. Basically everyone on board went to their cabins and waited to drown. Without explanation, the boat righted itself and everyone was fine. The captain said that they must have been saved because of all the Mormons onboard (: Happy Sunday everyone! Feel free to share any cool family history stories in the comments.
