Twice a Year
It's that time of year again when the weather is cooling off and we are all ready for another renewal of our spirits. Each of us has a spirit. Our spirit needs nutrients just like our physical body does. You wouldn't go weeks or months without eating or drinking, so you probably shouldn't go weeks or months without feeding your spirit either. We get our spiritual nutrients from daily scripture study, personal prayer and weekly sacrament meetings. We have a 6 month check up on our spirits just like we have regular check ups on our bodies. Our spiritual check up is at the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. At genereal conference we hear from a living prophet, a modern-day Moses. We can be instructed on current issues and feel the spirit of the Lord as we listen to the beautiful music. All are invited to attend or tune in to hear or watch. As you approach general conference, come with questions and see if they aren't answered. I testify that we have a living prophet on the earth today. Let us all listen to him so we can maintain and achieve peace and safety in this world and keep good spiritual health.
