Another weekend of General Conference has come and gone and I’m already missing the “high” I always get listening to 10 hours of prophetic and inspiring words from the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

If you’re like me and need another little boost of comfort and encouragement, enjoy a few of my favorite quotes from the April 2021 General Conference.
