The Riverton FamilySearch Library offers a one day Family History activity to supplement ward and multi-ward youth conferences.
+
== '''"Turning the Hearts":  Youth Conference 2017'''  ==
  
The library youth conference activities are designed to help youth and their leaders recognize the Spirit of Elijah and learn how its influence can bless the lives of both the living and the dead through Family History and Temple Ordinance work.  
+
Youth conference is an opportunity to help youth learn, grow, and have an uplifting spiritual experience. Family history can be a valuable experience for youth conference. The activities are designed to help youth and their leaders feel the Spirit of Elijah and experience how its influence can bless the lives of both the living and the dead through family history and temple ordinance work. ''Our purpose for the conferences is to turn the hearts of our youth to their fathers.''<br>
  
Research workshops will provide instruction on the key elements of genealogical research to help youth with their individual family history responsibilities. Service workshops will be presented to explain opportunities that are available for youth to assist others in family history research. Each class will be followed with a hands-on activity to practice skills and procedures learned during the class presentations.  
+
This year wards and stakes can tailor a family history experience for their interests and the amount of time they have available. Groups may come for a few hours or the entire day, choosing presentations that match their goals and experience levels. Each presentation and related practice takes up to ninety minutes. We also include fun activities to help youth get to know their ancestors and each other. The youth conference manager will work with each ward or stake to develop a program specifically for their youth.<br>
  
= Invitation and Promise to Youth  =
+
<br>Apostles have promised wonderful blessings to youth who participate in family history:
  
== Elder David A. Bednar  ==
+
Your conversion to the Savior will become deeper.<br> You will receive light and knowledge through the Holy Ghost.<br> Your testimony will be strengthened.<br> Your patriarchal blessing will become more meaningful.<br> Your love and gratitude for your ancestors will grow.<br> You will have greater opportunities to serve.<br> Your service in the temple will become more sacred.<br> You will be protected from the increasing influence of the adversary.<br>
  
It is no coincidence that FamilySearch and other tools have come forth at a time when young people are so familiar with a wide range of information and communication technologies. Your fingers have been trained to text and to tweet to accelerate and advance the work of the Lord — not just to communicate quickly with your friends. The skills and aptitude evident among many young people today are a preparation to contribute to the work of salvation.  
+
== 2017 Schedule ==
 +
Youth conference can be scheduled Monday through Friday from June 5 to August 11, 2016, except near holidays.  
  
I invite the young people of the Church to learn about and experience the Spirit of Elijah. I encourage you to study, to search out your ancestors, and to prepare yourselves to perform proxy baptisms in the house of the Lord for your kindred dead. And I urge you to help other people identify their family histories.  
+
The following table shows available dates and the number of spaces available for those days.
  
As you respond in faith to this invitation, your hearts shall turn to the fathers. The promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will be implanted in your hearts. Your patriarchal blessing, with its declaration of lineage, will link you to these fathers and be more meaningful to you. Your love and gratitude for your ancestors will increase. Your testimony of and conversion to the Savior will become deep and abiding. And I promise you will be protected against the intensifying influence of the adversary. As you participate and love this holy work, you will be safeguarded in your youth and throughout your lives.

"Turning the Hearts": Youth Conference 2017

Youth conference is an opportunity to help youth learn, grow, and have an uplifting spiritual experience. Family history can be a valuable experience for youth conference. The activities are designed to help youth and their leaders feel the Spirit of Elijah and experience how its influence can bless the lives of both the living and the dead through family history and temple ordinance work. Our purpose for the conferences is to turn the hearts of our youth to their fathers.

This year wards and stakes can tailor a family history experience for their interests and the amount of time they have available. Groups may come for a few hours or the entire day, choosing presentations that match their goals and experience levels. Each presentation and related practice takes up to ninety minutes. We also include fun activities to help youth get to know their ancestors and each other. The youth conference manager will work with each ward or stake to develop a program specifically for their youth.


Apostles have promised wonderful blessings to youth who participate in family history:

Your conversion to the Savior will become deeper.
You will receive light and knowledge through the Holy Ghost.
Your testimony will be strengthened.
Your patriarchal blessing will become more meaningful.
Your love and gratitude for your ancestors will grow.
You will have greater opportunities to serve.
Your service in the temple will become more sacred.
You will be protected from the increasing influence of the adversary.
