Preparing for General Conference

General Conference is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love being able to see and hear from the Prophet, Apostles and other church leaders.  Thanks to technology I can do that in the comfort of my own home.  

We've done different things to make General Conference memorable, fun, and quiet throughout the years.  Some things have worked better than others.  I find that what works for one family may not work for another.  Sugar Doodle has an extensive list of ideas to check out.  Chicken Scratch N Sniff has a collection of ideas that are hands on activities.

In thinking about General Conference I decide to share this quote from Elder Hales that he said last year with my kids.  I want them to know that Conference is for them as well as their parents and so while I'm all for doing little quiet activities I want them to know that listening to Conference is beneficial and can help them in their lives.
