It’s HERE! After several requests, we came up with a Conference Kit in our NEW “Leader Reader” format. It rolls like a Powerpoint and creates lots of family engagement!
THIS CONFERENCE KIT IS PERFECT IF…
You are a parent wanting a super fresh and very unique way for your family to PREP for Conference… If you are a Primary leader or teacher and want to email your ward family or Primary class a way to get ready for Conference… If you are married to a member of the Bishopric and they are looking for good ways to connect and get your ward excited for Conference!
It’s a BEFORE Conference kit and it has printables coming soon that help your family DURING Conference!
Our Prophet has “INVITED” us to do 5 specific things to help us PREPARE for the Bicentennial General Conference in April. When we discovered that most people in our ward did NOT know what President Nelson has requested us to do to get prepared, we went to work and created a way to show them the Prophet’s requests. We decided to print up each of his requests and make them into beautiful invitations. We then printed up stickers to be placed on their accompanying envelope that said, “An Invitation From President Russell M. Nelson” and placed all of his requests inside an envelope, one envelope for each member of our YSA RS and Elder’s Quorum.
Design Your Own Plan for General Conference Study
Next, we held a special Sunday School meeting called “A Kick-Off to the Restoration” – and we passed out these special invites to the class. We read through the invitations as a group and focused on the invitation where the Prophet asked us to “Design Your Own Plan to Get Immersed in the Restoration.” We then passed out a worksheet which we called Design Your Own Plan and we brainstormed on the whiteboard ideas to help them get immersed which they could write on their worksheets.
*As leaders, we observed that when our ward members were in charge of designing their “own plans” and brainstorming ideas, they were more excited about getting prepared than if we had told them what to do to prepare. Our ward loved this special meeting. We heard that several members went and made copies of the invitations to pass out to their friends and family! They also have been coming and telling us on Sundays that they have been accomplishing the goals they made on their planning sheet!
Kit for Bicentennial General Conference Preparation
KIT CONTENTS: This instant download printable kit comes with a lesson, worksheets, thematic prints and the invites that you can use for YOUTH lessons, for FHE, or RS. We love helping you ACT UPON the Invitations of our Prophet!
We loved seeing the faces on our YSA members as they opened their “invitations from the Prophet.” It just made it special and unforgettable! A fun idea would be to have a special “RESTORATION FAMILY DINNER” and to have an invite at each of your place settings so each member of your family gets to open their own invitations and feels “INVITED!”
PS. The invites also make for a beautiful “Ministering gift” to give to those you are assigned to. So perfect as the Restoration is on everyone’s minds!
As always, General Conference this year was a treat!
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to learn from our wonderful brothers and sisters who help lead this church by inspiration. My wife recently challenged me to listen to one conference talk per day, as a way to learn from and apply general conference messages. I can’t say I’ve done perfectly with the challenge, but I can definitely attest to the blessings of studying General Conference.
Recently as I’ve been making tons of video players (about people, LDS missions, health conditions, etc.), I’ve been thinking- wouldn’t it be cool to create a video player to make it easier to share General Conference with others?
So I created an embeddable video player to do that.
Didn’t you just love General Conference! I sure did! In full disclosure, I was not able to listen to all of it during conference. With three little active boys, I listened the best I could without making it a non-pleasant experience for all parties involved. We sure are blessed to be able to listen to conference right from our phones! It has been a life-saver for me. I have been listening and re-listening to the talks given and sure have felt inspired to do better and be better.
I decided to go thru all the apostles talks and make a printable for each talk that would help me remember what they taught. I made them in a handy little size, (3×3) that I can place around different areas that I frequent (aka – Fridge, pantry, cupboards and car). This way, for the next six months, I have a visual reminder of what talk I can turn to when struggling with whatever I might be struggling with. If I am feeling like a “lost sheep,” I can remember the words from President Uchtdorf. If struggling with a decision to make, I have a visual of what the prophet has taught. If wanting to learn more about Priesthood Power, I know that I can listen / read Elder Stevenson’s talk. I am hoping that this will help me turn more fully to the words of the living prophets when faced with my daily struggles, and hope they will help you, too.
