With social and instant media booming in today’s world, it can be very easy to participate in the online LDS conference discussion to the point that it becomes a distraction, instead of a help. What exactly is said during a session is, in my opinion, secondary to what the spirit teaches as we hear the words.
I have participated in small ways in the twitter #ldsconf discussion over the past 2 years. I will also be participating in a limited way during this weekend.
Even so, the best talks draw me away from my computer and help me focus on really learning and connecting with the Spirit.
So, don’t be afraid to pause your timelines or turn off the electronics for a few minutes.
You might even get out an old fashioned notebook and start recording your own Small Plates.
