Sharing What Works--General Conference Snippets
We have a devotional during breakfast each day. I eat earlier than the kids because I get up earlier than they do, and I wake up hungry. Because my mouth is not full, and the kids' mouths are full, breakfast is an ideal time for me to do a little preaching. :)
Right now I'm sharing highlights from General Conference. Every day I read a story from a talk or briefly share doctrinal points that seem relevant at the moment.
Without fail I get choked up as I read and bear testimony of the truths of the gospel. The kids are getting used to tears with their breakfast.
Some days I have to remind the kids to be polite.
Some days they join in and share relevant primary/church/YW/personal scripture study experiences that turn our devotional into a wonder of shared testimonies.
What will we do when we have finished all of the talks? I'm not sure. But I have shelves full of inspiring reading, and I'm sure I'll find something to keep the fires burning until the next General Conference (in April!).
