“Bulletin Board,” Friend, Oct. 2010, 12–13
Write down words that stand out to you. Some might be faith, love, Jesus Christ, and scriptures. Cut out each word and use string to hang them from a clothes hanger or drinking straw. Hang your mobile where you will see the important words often.
Make a list of the songs the choir sings. Choose your favorites and ask your family to sing them in a few family home evenings if they are in the hymnbook.
Take notes with different colored pens, markers, or pencils. You can organize the colors by day, session, or quorum the speaker is a member of.
Work on conference activities and coloring pages you can print from friend.lds.org.
October is a time when we get to hear from our prophet and apostles at general conference. Take some time this month to read Amos 3:7 and Doctrine and Covenants 107:91–92. Then write in your journal about something you learned from President Monson or another General Authority.
One Saturday I was watching a movie at home when my dad said he was going to visit grandma at the hospice. I called to my dad, “Wait for me, I want to come!” So off we went. We went to Grandma Billie’s room, and she was in bed. She was tired. Dad and I talked with her. Every time she opened her eyes I would say, “Peek-a-boo!” and make her laugh softly. I felt as if her soul and my soul started to giggle to themselves. On the way home, I felt warm in my heart for what I did.
