General Conference Packets – Thank You Beehives!

April 4th, 2009 by Dustin

This morning our 6 year old daughter Gracie was whining and complaining because she didn’t want to watch General Conference and my wife, Rachel didn’t want the kids just playing in the toy room and fighting the whole time. Gracie was getting pretty dramatic about it. Just before it started the doorbell rang. It was a beehive girl in the ward. She dropped off 3 packets that had a conference activity book, bingo game, and a pack of M&M’s. It was seriously so cool! There was a little note from the Beehive group saying “we hope you enjoy general conference.” I was not only impressed that they did the project but they were out delivering them in cold, windy, snowy weather. Seriously, it was really cool. Gracie saw them and got really excited. Our 4 year old son, Gehrig was excited too. We didn’t have a problem keeping them in the room after that. Gracie was listening for words fill up her bingo card with her M&M and Gehrig was coloring in his workbook and drawing his favorite apostle, Elder Uchtdorf. Nolan, our 18 month old was devouring his M&Ms. Those young women really saved us! I think even Rachel really enjoyed it. There was a page for each apostle and activities to do while they were speaking. She used Nolan’s packet and followed along and made notes in it. It really was not just for kids I guess!

    Good stuff, interesting one. The interesting thing in this story is that Kids are involved and I am very crazy about kids.
    Funny post I enjoyed, thank you for sharing.

  4. Savannah Says:

    Did you look at the ladies properly? May be they were the protecting angels truly? Really they saved your day. Watching something attentively with three kids around is really complicated if those supporting stuff were not there.

  5. Alexis Miller Says:

    That sounds really cool and interesting. It is true that when kids are involved in something, it makes that work even more interesting.

  6. Lauren Murphy Says:

    Amazing and different post. I love kids and am crazy about them. This post makes me very happy. It is good to see that the kids are involved in something and what makes us different form them is the involvement. Kids are involved wholeheartedly in whatever they do, unlike adults.

  7. Julie Says:

    What sweet Young Women! I love those General Conference Packets. They are life savers.

    I have a 2 and a half year son of my own and I find that whatever he is interested in he does it so well. I totally agree with you. Kids are wholeheartedly involved in whatever they do.

  9. Abigail Watson Says:

    I agree with Aaliyah that children’s do whatever they interested in with wholeheartedly. And they do enjoy in those activities also.

  10. Simmons Luke Says:

    The efforts made by Beehives Group are really commendable.They not only cajoled the children to join General Conference but also persuaded the adults to participate in activities.Good job Beehives!

  11. Propagation michael Says:

    Children are god’d gift and they are really innocent and not affected by external forces. They do what they know and feel is correct. I love that innocence in them. The Beehives are doing great job. Keep it up. Kudos to your work and efforts.

  12. Lewis David Says:

    Truly children’s are God’s gift. Indeed they are God’s greatest gift I can say. I love their innocence. As mentioned in the above comment the beehives are doing a great job. Keep up the good work. I appreciate your efforts.

  13. Olivia Hall Says:

    Children always get indulged wholeheartedly in the stuff they enjoy to do.I believe Beehive Group has implemented the same tactic by distributing attractive bingo games, colourful activity book and the M&M candy and coaxed them to visit General Conference.They also convinced parents to participate
    in activities along with their children and made this event enormously successful.

  14. Arianna ox.ashley.ox Says:

    My hearty congratulations to the volunteers and the parents who participated along with their kids to make the event a real sporty one.It is commendable effort from Beehives group to organize this general conference and to conduct it so gracefully.These kinds of active conferences not only entertain children but also encourage the whole family come together and have a good recreation.

  15. Murphy Mary Says:

    This event is really very good. Very sporty too. The parents and children are doing a wonderful job. The beehives too are a great group. They are indeed doing a great job. Kids are God’s greatest gift and how we mold them is totally in our hands.

    Both Commonplace Poor’s and Fitch have assigned BBB minus scores to India, the lowest financial investment quality scores. A downgrade would acquire the country’s credit scores to junk status, building abroad borrowings tricky and costlier. It might adversely effect the Indian currency and capital inflows equally for that governing administration plus the corporate sector, as a result aggravating the problem of recent account deficit.
