I love conference time! I love having the opportunity to hear from our leaders and learn from their experiences, wisdom, and council! Having Jackie and a kid on the way has made me think what we will do for conference in our home.
I can remember growing up when we were young having to watch a session on Sunday and then the prophet speak again in the afternoon session. As we got older my parents asked us to watch more and more. I remember at times not understanding why it was important or why we should do it. As i have gotten older and started my own family I am realizing the great importance of General Conference. Its such a great time, a time were we can get answers to so many important questions we have in our lives.
I want to strive to instill the importance of conference in my children's lives so they will understand as they grow up how important it is to watch! I know for a little while they will be too young but in a few years Jackie will get old enough to grasp enough to play a little conference bingo, and as our kids grow we will be able to watch it all together as a family and talk about the council that was given and how we can apply it into our lives!
Jackie made it through the prayers today....one she thought was a little too long and kept saying amen, but she kept her arms folded ;) she also loved the songs! I hope as she grows she will continue grow in her love for conference and watch more and more....but i know that it starts with Derek and I setting that example for her! I am thankful for a husband who wants to watch all of conference and goes to priesthood session!
I loved Saturdays sessions, i love how a few talks really will just jump out at you and speak to you! I hope all of you had a chance to listen to conference today and will listen tomorrow!
