    One Talk a Month

    Once a month during family home evening, we read and discuss a general conference talk. Sometimes our teenagers make suggestions for an article they would like to review.

    We make photocopies of the selected talk so each family member can follow along as we read aloud. While we read, each of us selects a favorite passage to review or comment about later. When we have finished reading, we share our ideas, making notes of the ones that impress us individually.

    At the end of the lesson, we place our copies of the talk in three-ring binders that we earlier covered with fabric and decorated. Then we can refer to the talks in the future when presenting thoughts or devotionals or preparing talks or lessons.—Tara Parker, Ovid, Idaho
