17 General Conference-Book of Mormon Memes

General Conference has once again come and gone. That, of course, means that we are only just beginning in terms of pondering and applying the abundance of counsel given to us as Latter-day Saints. As usual, there were a number of inspiring and motivating messages that were shared. And Church leaders frequently drew upon the Book of Mormon to teach important principles.

Given that memes have become such a large part of our social media culture, it is no surprise that memes have also become a common way to consume and share General Conference.  The Book of Mormon Central staff churned out 17 memes during the conference that highlight different instances where the Book of Mormon was used in General Conference.

Though these were posted in as timely a manner as possible on the Book of Mormon Central Facebook page, and I plastered my own Facebook wall with them (sorry to all my friends who got sick of me over this weekend), I thought I would collect them and post them here.


Hopefully these can be an aid to you in as you seek to ponder and share the many inspiring messages from this last General Conference.

“The Dominant Narrative is Not True”: Some Thoughts on Recent Remarks by Richard Bushman

The following is making its rounds on Facebook (from this video):Questioner: In your view do you see room in Mormonism for several narratives of a religious experience or do you think that in order for the Church to remain strong they would have to hold to that dominant narrative?
Richard Bushman: I think that for the Church to remain strong it has to reconstruct its narrative. The dominant narrative is not true; it can’t be sustained. The Church has to absorb all this new information or it will be on very shaky grounds and that's what it is trying to do and it will be a strain for a lot of people, older people especially. But I think it has to change. As I have seen this quote flash across my Facebook news feed and thought about how to make sense of it, I have been reminded of the short essay response questions I would often have on tests or assignments in college or even high school. It would not be uncommon for these questions to be built around a quote from an important schola…

Book of Mormon Day Reading

The Book of Mormon first went up for sale on March 26, 1830, at the E.B. Grandin Bookstore in Palmyra, NY. Tomorrow will mark the 187th anniversary of that occasion. In those intervening years, the book has had a major impact on countless lives—including my own. I love the Book of Mormon, and have a firm testimony of its truth. I can personally tell you that research into all kinds of questions about the book has only served to strengthen my testimony. It is a remarkable book, which will wear you out long before you make a dent in it, as Hugh Nibley said (pretty sure that is a direct quote, but too lazy to double check).

For those who would like to reflect on the Book of Mormon’s coming forth and long term impact in the last (almost) two centuries, I’ve compiled the following list of KnoWhys from Book of Mormon Central.
