Every 6 months we gather as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for General Conference. From the USA, to mexico, Africa to Japan to Tahiti, you get the picture, EVERYWHERE we all gather and listen, watch via satellite, internet, t.v. ect. and listen to our Prophets voice and many other leaders speak.
It is the two MOST edifying time of the year.
The talks always pierce me to the heart. just what I needed to hear.
Another fun part, I must admit, as that I get to attend church in Jammies!
Get up, make some pancakes, hang out with the
fam until the Mormon Tabernacle Choir fills the family room with their beautiful music, then we
all gather around the t.v.
MAN, the talks are just so good, inspiring, full of truth.
The children are just perfectly reverent and behaved also. ;) We made some popcorn and I told the kids they could eat in on the carpet if they were really careful not to leave any crumbs, because I just vaccumed.
They did a perfect job. As always:
My friend and I were talking about family conference traditions and reminiscing on
what ours were as kids. My Grandma would put a quilt on and we grandkids would lay blankets underneath and watch conference from there. She told us were were just like the Nephites in olden times when they pitched their tents and all gathered to listen to King Benjamin the prophet in their day. That was so fun Grandma!
In Devin and I's little family now, we really don't have any set traditions yet.
I'm pretty sure popcorn won't be one though.
What were your conference traditions?
