Just 3 more days until General Conference.
How are you preparing for conference this year?
Here’s an idea that you could use.
There is a great article in this month’s Ensign.
The title is, “Clearing Our Calendar for Conference”
Sis. Cheryl Burr shared how her family prepares for General Conference.
She said that years ago her family decided that they wanted to make general conference more meaningful. They talked about how important is was to watch general conference with clear minds and rested bodies. They decided to set a goal not to plan anything extra for a few days before conference or during conference weekend.
She says, “We found that our younger children wanted to be part of general conference. I think it was because we talked about the importance of conference over and over throughout the week before.”
They have continued to stick to their goal conference after conference because of the effect it had on their family and the spirit in their home.
When I read this article I loved this idea.
I think life gets a little too hectic sometimes and when conference comes around we don’t have time to calm down and be ready spiritually or mentally.
I am going to give this a try and see what a difference it makes.
How are you preparing for General Conference? Do you have some fun activities planned? Any traditions?
I’d love to hear them!
