Stay Focused & Enjoy

The Saturday session of General Conference starts in less than hour. Are you ready? Do you think your children will let you listen this year?

Sugardoodle is a great resource for free printable General Conference packets to help keep the kids busy, but still focused on Conference.

We watch the Conference at home on the computer so it can be hard to keep the kids interested in the talks. Last spring we tried something new and the kids are asking to do it again!

I printed out the packets and emptied our 72-hour kits. For each page a child finishes, they got to choose an item from the kits. The candy, hot cocoa, and Capri-Suns were very motivating. They stayed more focused than ever and I was able to rotate my emergency kits!

Now, do YOU stay focused during the eight to ten hours (priesthood) of talks? Admit it, you've dozed off while watching in your pajamas. I have. Not this time. {I hope! It's hard when we have to sit on our bed to watch it!}

To help me I will be filling out my own little questionnaire and then posting the results here. Won't you do it with me and we can share what we liked best?

What was your favorite song?

Which talk was your favorite?

What made you laugh?

What made you cry?

Which part was "what you needed to hear"?

What was your favorite talk?

You can do this for each session, each day, or for just overall. Enjoy!
