In addition to all the warm fuzzies and innumerable blessings that you’ll receive for watching General Conference, here are a couple other incentives. Lesa from Notes About Music and I are hosting a general conference trivia contest.
GENERAL CONFERENCE TRIVIA CONTEST
We will post the questions on Monday morning and see who was really paying attention. You’ll type up your answers and email them to me at email@example.com. All the high-scorers will be placed in a drawing to win one of these two prizes (So, two winners).:
This 8×10 temple print by Brighter Side Art
and a Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD
(I don’t know if it will actually be this very CD, but definitely a MoTab CD. This prize will be donated by the generous Lesa.)
Also, one more contest:
GENERAL CONFERENCE PHOTO CONTEST
Take a photo of your family or children watching/participating in conference and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post them all and select a handful of favorites to go up for a vote. The winner of the photo contest will receive this great little book:
Believe in what you’re doing… by Hilary Weeks
(The book really doesn’t have anything to do with conference per se, but it’s a great read to remind you that all the little efforts you make –like encouraging your family to watch general conference– are noticed and appreciated by Heavenly Father. Also, Hilary Weeks is just plain cool.)
Submit your photo by Monday night at midnight, then all photos and finalists will be posted some time Tuesday for voting.
p.s. Please do not camp out by your TV with your camera and forget to actually pay attention to conference. If you feel you may be tempted to do so, please just go buy yourself the book instead. 🙂
So there you have it. Three more fun reasons to dive into this weekend’s conference experience. Yay!!

This post made me smile after a very very long day. Thank you:)
I always try to pay attention, but I end up spending far too much time asking my kids to be quiet…I’m ready to try again! So excited for Conference!!!!!
Actually…that is the exact CD I’m giving away 🙂
Yay! I love it when I’m right. 🙂
General Conference is also a time to think about service. We mothers can get busy and it is hard to find time to serve, but here is a way I found to do it from home: helpinghandsbank.com
