September 24, 2021 |

We have a great deal of joy and enthusiasm in our hearts following the International Conference, as it provided an opportunity for us to edify one another and our multicolored and luminous souls as we testified of the unconditional love of our Heavenly Father for His children and that authenticity is a virtue that should always shine as a testimony of His infinite mercy for us.

The Destruction from 9-11

Hundreds, thousands, millions of times

September 24, 2021 |

20 years ago, that was a day of such loss, there are no words to describe it. We hear about the total numbers. And total numbers continue since then. This many killed and injured in this shooting, this battle, this riot, this war, this pandemic, this school, this hospital, this famine. There are so many, I can’t comprehend it.

Registration Open for 2021 International Conference

July 18, 2021 |

Registration this year is open to all at no cost. With this in addition to the conference being virtual, our hope is that this conference is the most accessible and well attended of any conference Affirmation has hosted. Last year’s conference included speakers and attendees participating who would not have been able to attend this conference in person. We hope to see the same this year, with those in the LGBTQIA+ Latter-day Saint community connecting with each other from all parts of the world in safety, love, and hope.
