The conference report for the Church’s fiftieth jubilee year (1880) was the first to be published as a separate booklet (110 pages) exclusively of general conference addresses. The next volume in that series contained the talks given at the October 1897 Semiannual General Conference (78 pages). Since 1899, the Church has published official reports of its annual and semiannual General Conferences, commonly called Conference Reports. In the past, these reports were distributed in booklet form only to Church leaders (bishoprics and higher), Church employees, and libraries. Currently, they are only produced for historical and administrative purposes.

190th Annual Conference April 2020
We are to seek, in every way we can, to hear Jesus Christ, who speaks to us through the power and ministering of the Holy Ghost.
We should always remember the price Joseph and Hyrum Smith paid, along with so many other faithful men, women, and children, to establish the Church.
To ensure a righteous judgment, the Savior’s atoning sacrifice will clear away the underbrush of ignorance and the painful thorns of hurt caused by others.
As women of faith, we can draw principles of truth from the Prophet Joseph’s experiences that provide insights for receiving our own revelation.
When personal difficulties or world conditions beyond our control darken our path, the spiritually defining memories from our book of life are like luminous stones that help brighten the road ahead.
The Lord is trying to help us—all of us—get His gospel deeper in our hearts.
As we pray in faith, we become a vital part in the Lord’s work as He prepares the world for His Second Coming.
The historical facts and the special witnesses of the Book of Mormon testify that its coming forth was indeed miraculous.
We can do difficult things and help others do the same, because we know in whom we can trust.
The central message of the Book of Mormon is to restore the true knowledge of the essential role of Jesus Christ in the salvation and exaltation of mankind.
I invite you to remember each day the greatness of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and what They have done for you.
The Book of Mormon provides spiritual nutrition, prescribes a plan of action, and connects us with the Holy Spirit.
During the coming years, may we allow the improvements made to the Salt Lake Temple to move and inspire us.
At this season of hosanna and hallelujah, sing hallelujah—for He shall reign forever and ever!
Through the priesthood, we can be lifted. The priesthood brings light into our world.
We are given the opportunity to minister like angels, to preach the gospel on all the continents of the earth, and to help souls come unto Christ.
The most effective way to fulfill our divine potential is to work together, blessed by the power and authority of the priesthood.
The Lord is leading the Restoration of His gospel and His Church. He knows the future perfectly. He invites you to the work.
In the Church the authority of the priesthood is exercised under the direction of a priesthood leader who holds the keys of that priesthood.
Let us put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ into action!
The prophecies that have been fulfilled by the Restoration of the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ are many.
Look and pray for opportunities to let your light shine that others may see the way to Jesus Christ.
Because the Restoration reaffirmed the foundational truth that God does work in this world, we can hope, we should hope, even when facing the most insurmountable odds.
The covenants received and the ordinances performed in temples are essential to the sanctifying of our hearts and for the ultimate exaltation of God’s sons and daughters.
Our Father knows that when we are surrounded by uncertainty and fear, what will help us the very most is to hear His Son.
President Russel M. Nelson leads a Hosanna Shout in the April 2020 General Conference.
We who know God’s plan and who have covenanted to participate have a clear responsibility to teach these truths.
Continuous revelation has been received and is being received through channels the Lord has established.
Jesus Christ and His Atonement are the refuge that we all need, regardless of the storms that are battering our lives.
We invite all of God’s children throughout the world to join us in this great endeavor.
The Savior is the perfect engineer, builder, and interior designer. His project is the perfection and eternal joy of our souls.
The Restoration belongs to the world, and its message is especially urgent today.
I bless you with peace and increasing faith in the Lord.

What things can you do within your own life to show that you love the Lord first?
Small efforts collectively make a big impact, magnifying the many individual things we do as disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Savior’s healing power is not just His ability to heal our bodies but, perhaps even more important, His ability to heal our hearts.
The scriptures and our knowledge of God are gifts—gifts that we too often take for granted. Let us cherish these blessings.
When you feel like you have failed too many times to keep trying, remember Christ’s Atonement and the grace it makes possible are real.
To be a follower of Christ is to strive to conform our actions, conduct, and lives to those of the Savior.
My invitation today is simple: share the gospel. Be you and hold up the light.
Faith in Jesus Christ is the key to receiving revelations of truth.
We need an ongoing, daily infusion of heavenly light. We need “times of refreshing.” Times of personal restoration.
Let your narrative be one of faith, following your Exemplar, the Savior Jesus Christ.
When love of Christ envelops our lives, we approach disagreements with meekness, patience, and kindness.
“Sequential order” is a simple, natural, and effective way for the Lord to teach us, as His children, important principles.
It has never been more important to seek personal peace.
Whenever any kind of upheaval occurs in your life, the safest place to be spiritually is living inside your temple covenants!
Trust in God and each other brings heaven’s blessings.
Sacrifice is less about “giving up” and more about “giving to” the Lord.
Keeping covenants unlocks the power of Jesus Christ’s atoning sacrifice to provide strength and even joy to you who suffer.
Every effort to change we make—no matter how tiny it seems to us—just might make the biggest difference in our lives.
We face our spiritual hurricanes best by believing in Christ and keeping His commandments.
Focusing on the things that are most important—especially those things “down the road,” those eternal things—is a key to maneuvering through this life.
When we willingly follow the counsel of the Lord as revealed through His living prophet, especially if it runs counter to our initial thinking, requiring humility and sacrifice, the Lord blesses us with additional spiritual power.
I plead with you today to counter the lure of the world by making time for the Lord in your life—each and every day.
