Almost better than listening to General Conference, I LOVE the May and November Ensign. I look forward to the opportunity to really study, simmer and chew on the teachings from our prophets and apostles. So good!
Wait! Even better...I just checked the LDS website and the words are already up for printing!!
At Education Week I had the opportunity to hear from Elder Russell T. Osguthorpe, General Sunday School President. Incidentally, he also spoke at this session of conference! Anyway, in his message at Education Week he shared how the Brethren teach.

Within each of their talks you will find three things:
* An Invitation
* A Promise
In our own teaching at home, we can do the same for our children. We can teach them the true doctrines and principles. We can invite them to join us in following those principles and then we can honestly promise them the blessings as perscribed in the scriptures and from conference. The same applies if you have been set apart as a teacher in any of the Church organizations.
So, as you read the conference talks this time around, look for those three things. I'm going to highlight each in a different color to differentiate what I've been asked to do and then vividly see the promises that will be mine if I follow the teachings. This truly is one of my favorite times of year. It's like, a chance for renewal and change. Love it!
