Purpose: To reinforce some of the topics that each person learned from watching/attending General Conference.
Hymn: “Teach me to Walk in the Light”
Scripture: Doctrine & Covenants 19:23
Lesson: Twice each year we are able to gather as a world-wide church and listen to the prophet of the Lord and his Holy Apostles. In each conference session we are filled with knowledge, help and inspiration to make better choices, live better lives, be kinder people and to be true followers of Christ.
We have been taught to study the teachings of the church leaders often. They are indeed our living scriptures today.
We are likewise counseled to continually to study from the ancient prophets in the Holy Bible, Book of Mormon and of course, the latter-day revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price.
The teachings and principles that we learn during conference help each of us in our day. How are we taking these teachings into our lives? Who are these men and women giving these talks?
General Conference: Click HERE to view talks from the current General Conference.
1– Take a few minutes and talk about some of the things that were taught in this past conference that stuck out to you.
Each session (including Relief Society General/Young Women meeting and the Priesthood session) are all available online.
2- Name all those in the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve. If available, use or print individual photos of each leader, then write their names on other pieces of paper, tear individually and play a name/face matching game.
3- Write down 2-3 goals that you want to improve on from something you learned during General Conference. Post these goals somewhere where you can see them every day.
Remember– it’s not a goal if it isn’t written down— it’s just a thought.
Personal Progress Idea:
General Conference Journal: Watch the General Women's session, plus all 4 sessions of General Conference (Saturday and Sunday). Keep a journal of notes from each of the talks - include at least 3 things that you learn from each speaker in your journal. The 10 hours of watching conference and keeping your journal will help you with your Knowledge project. Be sure to write about your testimony of General Conference as well.
JUST A NOTE:
Welcome to Family Home Evenings! So glad you're here and hope that you find the lesson you need for your family or group!
