Why We Have General Conference
“We meet each six months to strengthen one another, to extend encouragement, to provide comfort, to build faith.”
—President Thomas S. Monson

Conference Stories about Children
You can find these inspiring stories about children in the May 2012 issue of the Ensign:
After an earthquake in Haiti, Heavenly Father helps worried parents find their children (see page 113).
When a boy hears a prophet speak, he wants to stand and say he is on the Lord’s side (see page 14).
A girl who chose to play soccer on Sunday realizes she made a mistake and decides she will never do it again (see page 104).
