The Scriptures in General Conference

Speakers in general conference taught us from the scriptures. You can learn a lot by simply looking up the scriptures they used. The following scriptures were referred to most often in conference:

  •   *

    Seminary scripture mastery verses

  • New Learning Resources for Youth

    Brother Russell T. Osguthorpe, Sunday School general president, said:

    “The First Presidency recently approved new learning resources for youth that will support the innate desire of young people to learn, live, and share the gospel. These new resources are now available for review online. In January we will begin using them in classrooms. …

    “These new learning resources will help us all learn and teach in the Savior’s way in our homes and in our classrooms. As we do, we will be responding to His invitation to ‘come, follow me’ [see Luke 18:18–22].”

    With these new materials, you’re invited to play a greater role in your lessons by helping teach and by studying and living at home what you learn in your Sunday classes and quorums. As you prepare for these lessons, consider reviewing the conference talks below that relate to the monthly themes for the next several months. You can find each talk at
