Thank goodness for the convenience of watching General Conference on the Internet from the comfort of our home. It means that we can sort of pay attention to the speakers without incessantly shushing the kids. As much.
But we want them to start paying attention to the talks. Colin devised a plan to help get them started.
M&Ms. We told Warren that we all could get an M&M for every word from this chart he heard the speaker say: Jesus, family, Priesthood, scriptures, prayer, gospel. Wouldn’t you know it, he noticed many of those words said. Repeatedly. Want to know the most used word? Jesus. The picture above shows the empty bowl turned upside down that once held the red M&Ms assigned to the word.
Call it bribery. I’m not beyond that. But it worked.
I love Conference. I walk away filled with a desire to be better. And today I walked away from the day’s sessions also filled with chocolate.
