Taking Notes at General Conference

 Come listen to living prophets
Over the years I've written pages and pages of notes from General Conference, reread some of them, and then sadly have put many of them aside. In the past I tried to write down what I thought the speaker was trying to teach me. However, this October I decided to take my notes differently. So, after reading the article "Getting More Out of General Conference," from the April 2012 Ensign, I decided to divide my notes into various sections. First, at the top of each page for each session of conference I listed the heading:

My Current Concerns
What are some questions or concerns I currently am seeking answers to?

Then for each talk I listed these headings:

Words of Wisdom
What were some thoughts, quotes, or stories that had meaning to me?

Words of Warning
What are some warnings I need to head?

Blessings
What blessings will I receive if I head this counsel?

Changes to Make
What changes do I need to make in my life now?

This will be a new experience, but one I am looking forward to. Hope you enjoy General Conference as well.

  1. Those are great categories-I hope it goes well for you. I always try to just write down the phrases that jump out at me or the thoughts I had while I heard the talk so when I read it later I can really remember the way it made me feel. My notes are short, but powerful that way when I read through them later.
