Priesthood session traditions: Tradition fills stomach, strengthens friendships
Editor's note: We asked readers to share their food traditions around the priesthood session of general conference. Click here for more about these traditions.
My friend and I have a long tradition of going to an Italian restaurant after the priesthood session of general conference.
We discuss what we have learned from the speakers, talk about how we have felt, share experiences about our efforts to become like the Savior and dole out pass-along cards to our waiters.
Sometimes we feel prompted to bring others with us. Always we find the words of the prophets sinking deeper into our hearts and the bonds of our friendship strengthened. It’s a fantastic tradition!
