General Conference

I am out of town then this weekend to attend the General Conference for my church in Salt Lake City. If you want to watch what will be inspiring me this weekend you can watch online HERE. I will post again on Monday when I return. 

Till then may I share a favorite conference tradition in my little family. I would also love to hear your favorite conference tradition if you are LDS. If you are not LDS, consider tuning in or watching some on the internet. How often do you get to hear a man who 13 million people believe to be prophet like Moses of old speak to the world? Look for talks by Thomas S. Monson if you want to hear the current prophet. See his photo below.

I believe he is the Lord's mouthpiece on the earth today to give guidance and direction to us. I will be seeking the Spirit of the Lord to confirm that truth to me while I listen to him speak. I hope all of you will be seeking for that same Spirit to confirm truth to you as you listen as well.

Our conference tradition is to make homemade cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning. I also print out activity packets for the kids and have them draw pictures or write notes about 3 things each speaker says. What are your conference traditions?
