If approached like any other weekend, it will be just that. However, when one takes the weight of it seriously, that God speaks through his prophets, it becomes an entirely different experience.
Here are three ideas to consider for making conference more meaningful:
1. Make up your mind
In President Harold B. Lee's book "Stand Ye in Holy Places," he frankly discusses the absolute importance of making up one's mind, of committing oneself to obedience, before one is eventually bombarded with a volley of distractions and temptations.
Decide beforehand that you will watch or listen to conference. If you don't, it's much more likely your schedule will be, at least partially, hijacked by unplanned, last-minute affairs -- distractions.
