Once upon a time, people said things and we actually had to remember them.
I dunno, maybe kids sat more still back then, but there is absolutely NO way I can take notes during general conference. And even if I did I’m not sure that all those talks are things I need RIGHT then.
Enter the internets.
Now I can play talks at my leisure, as I get dressed in the morning or when I’m taking a self time out in my room.
I don’t know what kind of stuff you believe in, but I would recommend finding some talks or spiritual messages you can listen to on your own the rest of the week.
I love church on Sunday (ok, I mostly love church) but there are 6 other days of the week determined to drag me down into insanity. And frankly, that’s not very far away at this point.
So, instead of the fear that I end in a spiritual black hole devoid of life, I can instead listen to a conference talk and get a little perk.
**Footnote: I listen to conference talks on my Gospel Library app on my phone. Mormon Channel is another option but it seems to take too long to load.
