“This worldwide conference with its music and spoken word offers spiritual power, direction, and blessings ‘from on high’ (D&C 43:16). It is a time when the voice of personal inspiration and revelation will bring peace to our souls and will teach us how to become more Christlike. This voice will be as sweet as the voice of a dear friend, and it will fill our souls when our hearts are sufficiently contrite.
“By becoming more like the Savior, we will grow in our ability to ‘abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost’ (Romans 15:13). We will ‘lay aside the things of this world, and seek for the things of a better’ (D&C 25:10).”
