The historic live broadcasting of the Priesthood session of general conference last weekend got us thinking: how and where did you watch it?
At this year's conference gathering something new happened that hasn't ever before in the 183 year history of LDS conference: Priesthood session was broadcast, on TV, radio, and internet, live. The annoucement was met with open arms by Latter-day Saints everywhere, and there are a lot of great benefits to having the session broadcast more openly available, as some of our Facebook fans were quick to point out in their comments:
"This will make it easier for my husband--who has a lot of illness and resulting physical disabilities to deal with--to watch in real time. He's so happy about this, as am I."
—Heidi Lott Page
"Now my husband will be able to see it even when he is at work!"
—Nola Hansen Bergquist
Check out some of these ideas to help you--and those around you--feel the genuine spirit of general conference.
General Conference is one of my favorite times of the year. The season is changing, and along with these beautiful changes, we get to hear from our prophets. I'm hard-pressed to think of another time during the year that I feel more reinvigorated and energized to press forward.
Conference always gets us at LDS Living thinking--what are some of the best ideas we can suggest for making the most of this for your own family? I've tried to come up with feasible ideas, along with links to previous articles, for getting the most out of general conference.
For 183 years, general conference has been blessing Saints who thoughtfully prepare for the amazing opportunity to receive modern-day revelation from living prophets. With the next set of sessions right around the corner, we asked our readers to look back and tell us your favorite general conference moments. And we loved your answers so much, we wanted to share.

Deseret Book Company recently launched a yearlong project and newest missionary resource, MissionHome.com, a site designed specifically to answer questions like the ones above. Laurel Christensen Day, vice president of product development at Deseret Book, spoke about the motivation behind MissionHome.com: “We saw a way that we could provide a gathering place for missionaries and the families of missionaries to become acquainted with the area where they would be serving, as well as provide other unique resources, and MissionHome.com was born.”
The new site reveals an extensive mission directory with individual pages for each mission. The goal is to provide useful information about the people and the area where missionaries will be serving, such as typical meals, customs, climate, and transportation tips. In addition to the directory, other practical links and articles are provided that will help missionaries prepare, serve, and return from mission life. Senior couples can also watch for content just for them in the future.
