General Conference

I know what I'll be doing this weekend! LDS General Conference is on. It's kind of like a Mormon holiday—instead of going to church, we watch our leaders on TV (or listen on the radio, or tune in on the internet).

We have our own special traditions for conference weekend. We display pictures of the church leaders in our home beforehand to help the kids get familiar with their names and faces, so they'll recognize them when they see them speak.

We also have special snacks during conference. We keep three or four bowls of different snacks, and label them with different words we might hear during conference, such as Jesus Christ, temples, or families. Each time we hear one of the special words, we get the corresponding snack. The kids absolutely adore doing this.

Below is an infographic about General Conference. Those are some pretty big numbers!

What are you doing this weekend?

  1. It's a big weekend here, too. It's the opening weekend for the Rennaisance Fair, and I already have tickets. I am going Saturday. Houston's annual Greek festival is going on, too. I have a friend coming in from out of town and will squeeze dinner with him in there somewheres, too. I am loving this weather.
