    Conference Edition

    Show and Tell

    During general conference Everett B., age 9, Iowa, USA, built a tent out of chairs and blankets. His favorite part of conference is listening to the prophet. He loves listening to the prophet from his tent like the Nephites listened to King Benjamin (see Mosiah 2–4).

    Kira A., age 9, Idaho, USA, broke both of her arms two weeks before conference. She felt the Spirit when Elder Nelson talked about our bodies. She says, “It’s very hard to have two casts! I’m happy that my arms can heal.”

    I liked Elder Maynes’s talk because he talked about trials, and I have something hard in my life—type 1 diabetes. I have to be careful what I eat, prick my finger to test my blood sugar, and get insulin every time I eat. And when my blood sugars are low, I feel tired and confused. Sometimes I wish that I could pray to Heavenly Father and say, “Heavenly Father, can you just take the diabetes away?” But He knows I can handle this trial.

    This year my family decided to attend conference live for the first time. We came to Utah from Mexico. I loved when President Monson spoke. I liked his story about the man who was sick and couldn’t see or hear but managed to tell President Monson that he wanted a priesthood blessing.

    I liked seeing the children from all over the world, and I liked watching the organ being played when the choir sang. I was really glad I got to see the prophet.

    Naomi B., age 10, England, UK

    I really liked President Eyring’s talk because it reminded me that our goal is to live with Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father again. I pray every night for help to go to the celestial kingdom. When he talked about this, I felt like he was talking to me, and it made me happy inside.

    Ryan P., age 9, Pennsylvania, USA

    My favorite talk in general conference was President Monson’s. I liked how he talked about how much he loved his wife and missed her. This talk made me think about when my great-grandma was in the hospital and how I felt when she died. President Monson said he knows that he will see his wife again someday. I am thankful I will get to see my great-grandma again. I am thankful that families can be together forever and that President Monson can see his wife again.

    Cannon M., age 10, Idaho, USA

    Kayleb, Dustin, Dylan, Kyra, and Kaylee B., ages 7, 11, 9, 5, and 13, traveled from Idaho, USA, to watch general conference at the Conference Center together. Dustin really liked the story Elder Holland told about Stephanie because “she was strong and faithful and a good example for all of us.” Kaylee liked when Elder Nielsen taught us to trust others like you trust yourself, because we’re all on the same team.

    Paris T., and Talatau and Tahira P., ages 5, 3, and 6, came from Hawaii, USA, to watch general conference. Paris liked when President Monson talked about his wife. Talatau loved the songs, and Tahira’s favorite talk was from Elder Hamilton when he taught us to attend all three hours of church.
