Twice a year, in the spring and fall, we are lucky enough to have a General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is a time when we have the opportunity to listen to our prophet and his apostles and other inspired leaders. I love General Conference because it inspires me to be better and to focus on what's most important--those things that will bring me closer to my Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. The conference is broadcast worldwide, and so it is actually one Sunday when we are able to "have church at home" while we tune in on the TV or computer at www.lds.org . This year, because Easter was the first Sunday in April, it coincided with conference. What a perfect way to celebrate Christ's resurrection and His gift to us of eternal life. So, we tried to to make it fun for the kids and made a fort for them to snuggle up in. It didn't hold their attention for the entire time, but at least we got a good 10 minutes of silence ;)When it was all over, the bunny ears were put on and the kids were ready for their Easter egg hunt. The starting block-- our back porch steps.
Unfortunately, it was freezing outide! It looked and felt as though a huge storm was about to hit!
