Downloading General Conference

This post is dedicated to Serene...because I feel like "one-upping" her about our General Conference experience with three toddlers! If you are feeling like you barely heard a word of conference this weekend because your kids were too wild, just read Serene's "Conference VS Kids" post. But just so Serene knows...It was so loud at our house during General Conference, that I didn't even get a picture of it* (so Hah!)...I was probably too busy rocking back and forth in the fetal position! (*The picture above doesn't count...this was pre-egg hunt and the promise of candy had them pretty much doing whatever we wanted them to.)

So, in an effort to show my children the value that we place on listening to the words of the prophets, we missed a lot of the actual talks! No worries, though, because I totally rely on listening to General Conference online to catch what I've missed. I listen while I am cooking, or cleaning, and if I could only find my MP3 player cord, I'd also listen while I run. It's like downloading wisdom. I love it.

It's so useful. Now, in addition to finding talks by session and speaker, you can search by topic and keyword. You can also just listen to the music of conference. It's very cool. Check it out!

Also, our visit with my parents was wonderful. We really enjoyed just being with them.
We also had fun doing our Testimony Egg Hunt...Thanks to my friend Marla for the suggestion!


  1. LOLOL! Well, I just figured if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! Hence the pictures. :D
    The way our kitchen and living room are set up, it creates a race track. All Sunday the boys just ran around and around and around screaming at the top of their lungs!
    *sigh* i think I'm going to have to use your plan and download everything.

  2. I was indeed your 100th follower. Thanks for checking out my blog. I also blog at I really have enjoyed reading what you post and I'm looking forward to getting to know you through your mormon blog.

    our girls are finally getting old enough we can actually listen to conference. so this year we added a puppy and he became the distraction.

  3. I love listening to conference while I clean my kitchen every morning; I always glean more the second or third time through than I did the first.
