“Learning about Our Leaders,” Ensign, Sept. 2001, 71
Before every October and April general conference, our family hangs up pictures of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for a special family home evening lesson. Our children have enjoyed the challenge of learning the names of each of the Brethren as we have taught a variety of lessons relating to the prophet, revelation, and leadership. Pictures of other Church leaders can also be used for this activity.
I have felt a special spirit as I have contemplated the pictures on the wall during these times. I know my children have also felt this, and I share their excitement when we see these Church leaders speak during conference. Preparing for conference in our weekly Monday lessons has helped our children anticipate this joyous event, and it has helped the leaders of the Church become a greater part of our lives.—Judy Ann Morrise, West Hills Ward, Beaverton Oregon Stake
