With all of the uplifting and inspiring messages learned at General Conference, we all feel that inclination to keep what we learned during the sessions on Saturday and Sunday close to our hearts. Here are 10 items to help you remember and implement what we learned during General Conference.
The original Christus statue was made by Sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) of plaster in 1823 and was used to create the 11-foot marble version in 1839 that stands in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark. Thorvaldsen’s statue of the resurrected Christ helps present LDS belief in Jesus Christ, the son of God and redeemer of the world.
The first replica of the Christus, created in 1839, stands in a rotunda in the Salt Lake Visitors Center before a mural of the universe to show that "by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created" (D&C 76:24) These white carrara marble statues of Christ, with his hands outstretched, inviting all to come to him, help present the central doctrine of the Church: that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God and the Savior and Redeemer of the world.

What is grace? What difference can grace make in our lives? How does the Savior make His power available to us? And what must we do to gain access to that power? In Amazed by Grace, Sheri Dew discusses each of those important questions, exploring a topic that she describes as being central to the Atonement of Jesus Christ. "The most compelling, most life-changing message of all time," she writes, "is that Jesus Christ has already triumphed over sin, death, hell, temptation, and every kind of misery."

The light seems to break the gray-blue of the evening and melts with the clothing and figure of the Lord, who looks like an abstract triangle. In this composition I have selected almost exclusively the use of intersecting diagonal lines. This dynamism supports a moment of extreme tension and forces that collide as spades crossing in battle. At this moment the salvation of humankind was being defined. As Isaiah of old said “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities”. This beautiful by Jorge Cocco Santangelo is a must-have for your home.
