Conference Bingo

General Conference weekend just ended and it was such a great conference(as usual!). I love hearing from the leaders of our church. It is always so inspiring and pushes me to really try to be a better me. For those of you reading this that aren't LDS(Mormon), General Conference is a meeting/assembly held by the leaders of our church twice annually that is broadcast by television, radio, and internet from Salt Lake City. Leaders of the church speak on different gospel topics. Every time I hear them speak, my testimony of this gospel grows. I know this is Jesus Christ's church on the Earth today and I know that it is led by a living prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley. I feel so blessed to have the gospel in my life and in my families life. It is wonderful and brings us so much joy. I don't know what I'd do without it.

This year we wanted to find a way for the kids to enjoy conference and actually listen to some of it. Joey found these LDS Bingo printouts for the kids and they loved playing it during conference. There are different gospel subjects on each square with a picture and anytime someone spoke about a topic on their paper, they colored it in. They REALLY enjoyed doing this and actually listened to the speakers! It was great-thanks Joey! You are such a good daddy:)


The scene at our home Sunday. The girls were busy coloring and listening. Picture me sitting next to Joey-thats where I was:)

I always try to send the Primary kids home with a conference activity -- this time it was a coloring one for Jr. Primary and a game like bingo (CONFO --I'm so original) that I did for the bigger kids. It sounds like maybe we did well on our choices! Yay for Joey!
