It's here... the 2016 October General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon)! On Saturday, we enjoyed the women's session and this weekend we will have all of the general sessions, including the priesthood session. What continues to thrill me is that everything is available to watch or listen to online.

My good friend Larry Richman, over at LDS Media Talk, has put together a list of "8 Ways to Access LDS General Conference" for those of you looking for that information. I share it here because in years past I've also provided it and many of you continue to come seeking for it and I want to make sure you get it.

If you'd like to access the women's session videos (text should be up very soon), here you go:

The Mormon Newsroom has provided a wonderful summary of all the talks given at the women's session:

Make sure and visit the Mormon Newsroom to follow their complete coverage of General Conference and to answer any of your questions regarding how to watch the conference from wherever you are: CITY Coverage and News Media Resources from the 186th Semiannual General Conference

I know that you are looking forward to this weekend as much as I am. I expect I'll be on Twitter tweeting away throughout the weekend (@LDSNana). I hope to 'see' many of you there. The Twitter Stake is alive and well! You can follow the hashtag #LDSConf to join the conversation.

I was not only uplifted by the inspired words delivered during the women's session on Saturday but felt empowered by them as well. I continue to have a strong passion for standing for the family and feel a deep sense of loyalty to this work. I have a testimony that the Lord needs each of us to use our voice to be a light in the world. We shine the brightest when we keep our covenants and uphold the teachings of the Family Proclamation in this increasingly dark world. My latest post on Mormon Women Stand addresses the 'not' canonized Family Proclamation. I hope you'll read it.

And lastly, I want to challenge each of you to share general conference via social media this weekend. Make sure others know how to watch general conference. Make sure they know how the teachings of modern prophets' and apostles' influences your life. In some way, express how living a gospel-centered life is a blessing to you and your family. Your kind and loving words will inspire others and give them much needed hope. We are so blessed to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives and to understand His plan.

Courage requires faith. May our faith increase as we, together, lift our voices to be light!
