10 of our favorite resources to prepare your family for general conference

We get excited every spring and fall as general conference draws closer. It's such an incredible blessing to learn from our leaders, strengthen our testimonies, increase our understanding of the gospel, and feel God's love for us. We're looking forward to preparing our homes, hearts, and families to hear the words of our leaders before the October 2020 general conference is broadcast to members around the world.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland has said of the Church's general conferences that “it is an institutional declaration that the heavens are open, that divine guidance is as real today as it was for the ancient house of Israel, that God our Heavenly Father loves us and speaks His will through a living prophet.”

Perhaps you, too, are seeking some divine guidance from the upcoming general conference sessions. The good news is there are many resources to help guide you on your way! Here's a look at just some of the tools that can help you find the inspiration you seek.
