Make it a GREAT General Conference!

LDS General Conference is fast approaching! Make conference a special treat for your family with special traditions. Traditions in families are like the glue that hold together our memories and lessons of life. I know, personally, most of my memories are centered around traditions my family had growing up and the traditions I’m choosing for my family now. Cheryl Lant (General Primary President)in her talk entitled Righteous Traditions said “The most important traditions are connected with the way we live our lives and will last beyond us as our children’s lives are influenced and shaped.” This week we’re going to talk about the importance of having family traditions and especially having traditions centered around BOTH days of General Conference. Make General Conference a habit in your family by having traditions centered around it that your family can look forward to. They can be from the family you grew up in, your spouse’s family, other families you know, or get creative and create one yourself! If you don’t already have traditions around General Conference, it’s not too late! Start this weekend with new traditions for your family.

Here is an index of fun family activities and meals for this conference weekend from my blog! Remember this is a great time to start incorporating traditions to make conference meaningful and memorable for your family!

Conference Activity Packet-Great to help get kids involved in watching and listening to conference.

General Conference Goodie Bag-A perfect Visiting Teacher, friend, or family member gift to get them in the mood for conference.

Skookie-Our latest after Priesthood session treat!  It’s a warm cookie with delicious ice cream on top…and uses food storage!  

Sourdough Waffles with Strawberries- Our breakfast tradition. Trust me, if you try these you’ll never go back to “normal” waffles again!

White Bean Chili-A perfect meal for Saturday session. It’s done in the crockpot and ready before Priesthood begins with little cleanup! YEAH!!

    When I was young we played General Conference Bingo (there is one in the Conference Activity Packet you mentioned). I’ve share it with the young people around me and now they ask me about it every conference. Thanks for the links!

    I am interested to know what traditions people have around general conference. We always watched but the only thing I remember is we got candy if we sat through an entire talk quietly (when we were little)
