God told Adam to multiply and replenish the earth.
He commanded Noah to build a boat.
He promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations.
And he gave Moses the Ten Commandments.
The scriptures are full of accounts of God communicating with his children through prophets.
Today, many people wonder, if God spoke to man then, then why doesn't he speak to us now?
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints know that God still speaks to his children on earth.
He speaks to us personally through scripture and to our hearts through the whisperings of the Holy Spirit. He also sends us messages for our day through the words of his living prophets.
Those prophets and other church leaders will speak to the world this Saturday and Sunday
in General Conference. If you are curious about what they will share, you can access their messages virtually where ever you are through LDS.org and on BYU-TV.
Here are a few things that I gleaned from the prophets words during our last General Conference just six months ago:
I learned to face the future with faith.
During the last General Conference, church members were also asked to display a picture of the temple in every bedroom in our homes. Have you done that yet? Hmmmmm?
