30 seconds: “Have you ever read past journals (or blogs) and noticed you begin each entry with an apology for not writing in so long? ‘Dear Diary, I am so sorry it has been three decades since I have written.

General conference: It’s less than a month away, but we should "Plan Now for General Conference Reminders" in getting them ready and out to the investigators and recent converts. Because “If you've ever forgotten it was conference weekend, you know there is nothing worse than showing up for church on time at your regular ward building and seeing an empty parking lot!” Click in for all some great ideas on reminders all the way up to the last minute!
