When Conference Comes

General conference is just around the corner. Does your family have any conference traditions? The Hansen family creates a conference concession stand every year. The children earn conference coins by being ready on time, cleaning the breakfast table, and being kind. During the first session of conference, they earn coins by listening to speakers and completing quiet conference activities. Before the second session, the conference concession stand opens, and they can purchase goodies with the coins they earned. This tradition has become a family favorite!

I Love to See the Temple

On pages 20–21 you’ll meet Katie C. and Alexandra W., who visited Temple Square with their grandmas. The Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build! When the temple was finally finished, children in the area were invited to attend a special dedication ceremony, and they got to keep something signed by the prophet. You can find out what that was in next month’s Friend, which will have lots of stories about temples.

Ask Yourself …

What can I do to serve my family today?

This year general conference will be held on April 6 and 7. You can find conference stories, coloring sheets, and activities online at lds.org/friend.

Following Jesus

Be Humble

Jesus Christ said, “My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me” (John 7:16).

After healing a leper in Galilee, Jesus told the man to “say nothing” about the act (Mark 1:44). When a crowd of people wanted to make Jesus their king, He instead left and went “into a mountain” (John 6:15). People often wanted to praise Jesus for the miracles He performed. But Jesus never forgot that the glory really belonged to Heavenly Father.

This Month’s Challenges:

Challenge 1: Say “thank you” when someone gives you a compliment.

Challenge 2: Make a thank-you card for a parent, teacher, or ward leader.

Challenge 3: Write down your talents and think of ways Heavenly Father would like you to use them to help others.
