My RS lesson is coming up on Sunday and it’s on Dallin H Oak’s talk on the Sacrament and Sacrament meeting from this past General Conference.
I must admit I think I’ve let my children become the reason I’m not so reverent as of late. Which is pretty dumb since they’re 4 and 8 now, and fairly independent during the meeting (although reverent isn’t always a word I’d use to describe them).
So, I wanted thoughts from the readers. Yes, when children are irreverent or fussy — those are situations that need to be dealt with. How do you do them, and still attend the meeting in a quiet, reverent, broken heart/contrite spirit sort of way? I’d love to hear thoughts. Or, if you’ll be suffering through my lesson in person on Sunday — feel free to save your ideas until then.
Also, for my ADHD friends out there (no, I am not diagnosed, but I have the approximate attention span of a 4 year old most days) — how do you stay engaged in the meeting when you are literally bored to tears by what the speaker has chosen to present?
