Over the years I’ve written pages and pages of notes from General Conference, reread some of them, and then sadly have put many of them aside. In the past I tried to write down what I thought the speaker was trying to teach me. However, this October I decided to take my notes differently. So, after reading the article “Getting More Out of General Conference,” from the April 2012 Ensign, I decided to divide my notes into various sections. First, at the top of each page for each session of conference I listed the heading:
My Current Concerns
What are some questions or concerns I currently am seeking answers to?
Then for each talk I listed these headings:
Words of Wisdom
What were some thoughts, quotes, or stories that had meaning to me?
Words of Warning
What are some warnings I need to head?
What blessings will I receive if I head this counsel?
Changes to Make
What changes do I need to make in my life now?
This will be a new experience, but one I am looking forward to. Hope you enjoy General Conference as well.
