101 Resources to Study the Restoration

President Nelson has promised us a “unique conference that will commemorate the very foundations of the restored gospel.” He asks us to study the Restoration in preparation for it, and promises that as we do, General Conference “will be not only memorable; it will be unforgettable.” 

Brothers and Sisters, if the only difference between this conference and past conferences is the amount of preparation that occurs on an individual level, will this conference be unforgettable for you?
