Hi everyone!  Conference is quickly approaching and I decided to get my conference packet up and available for those of you who are eager and anxious to have things ready (I know you're out there!).  I also hoped by posting this early, that if you have the ability to translate the packet into another language, that you would share that talent with all of us.  I am currently working on getting a Spanish and Portuguese translation but anything else is great!  If you'd like to translate the packet, just use text boxes over the English words if they are graphics.  Otherwise, just replace the text with the translation and e-mail it back to me and I'll post it once I recreate the graphics to match the language.

First, and foremost, I want to give a HUGE thank you to Arie Van De Graaff of Mormon Cartoonist for graciously drawing the clipart of the prophet and apostles for this booklet.  His work has appeared in both The New Era and The Friend. THANK YOU so much Arie!!!!

Secondly, this is a labor of love and is very time consuming.  PLEASE do not download these files and then offer them directly from your own personal website(s) or blog(s).  However, feel free to link to this page.  I appreciate your understanding.  If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

PORTUGUESE

DESCRIPTION - This is a 20 page file; however, I am specifically offering it in Word so that you can take out the pages you do not want and leave the ones you do.  You can personalize the pages to your ward or family.  Or you can add pages of your own.

So, for example, if you want your Primary to only have "x" amount of pages, you can pick and choose which ones.  On the other hand, if you want to print the whole thing for your own children, you can.  It's up to you.

    I am too, and I have a Mac as well. I don't run windows, and opening this on my computer, is all messed up. I'm going to have to recreate it using what's there, and fixing it up. If I'm able to, I'll let you know. I'll probably leave some pages out, to fit our budget. Our Primary is huge...

    What an awesome packet Melanie! I use these for our Activity Day Girls every conference. They love them. Often families here will attend one or two sessions, when our girls have these packets they are so excited to go to all four sessions and then share what they learn in our General Conference Quiz & Sharing activity. Just wanted to know you're touching lives "down under" as well. Love your work.

    I have three kids ages 2,3 and 6. They still aren't into doing these pages at Conference time. So I admit I actually print these up for myself to use. :-* I think I actually pay better attention when I have to write things down and sometimes it can help my kids when explain things to them in my words. Whichever way you use these things, they are fabulous and I have to say THANKS!!!

    These are truly amazing. I cannot imagine the time it took to put them together! Actually, considering that I tinker around with computer projects such as this a lot, I CAN imagine the time it took, and I'm that much more grateful. I like the older Primary packet so much, I think I just might fill it out myself!

    Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us. I am so excited to give these conference packets to our kids (7,9,15,17)-anxiously awaiting the YM, YW versions. Sugardoodle is such a great help for me, I don't prepare a lesson for our Young Women without checking out Sugardoodle for help. My husband has been called to teach primary and now he is "hooked" also. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR IDEAS.

    THANK YOU!!! My kids look forward to these every 6 months! They *love* general conference because the packets really get them involved in listening.... I love the packets because *I* get to listen to conference, and love seeing my kids listen as well. BRAVO as usual!

    Wow! I enjoyed these and can't wait for the YM/YW packet, as I've just been made a YW Counselor. Thanks for all your hard work.

  • Dona Ahuna

    The General Conference Packets are the bomb! They're so fun that I think I'm going to make a copy for me too. Adults need to pay attention too. lol. Mahalo nui loa!

  • Natalie HIll

    Melanie,
    You have definitely outdone yourself! These packets are great. Can't wait to use them with my family and in primary. Thanks for sharing your time and talents.

  • Isabelle

    You're my hero! I have four children and have been looking for a 2010 April conference packet - these links are all so perfect. Thank You!!! (I usually spend hours making one on my own...this will save me tons of time) THANKS once again! :lol:

  • Edwina Moody

    FYI Another General Conference activity?
    I have made Conference Bingo for YEARS!!
    For younger children, I find pictures of words that may be said during conference and for older children, I use words. Make the usual bingo board of five squares across and down. Make the middle square free, then fill in the other squares with one word for longer games or two words for shorter games depending on the attention span of the child. THe child and adult has to pay attention to be able to keep track of which squares are able to be filled in. You would be suprised how well this can work! My ADHD son loved playing the game until he was a teenager because it made Conference interesting to him and we would talk about various talks that he had questions about later.
    Hope this idea helps soneone!
    Edwina

  • Michelle Taggart

    THANK YOU! We had our YW Board Meeting and plan to talk to the girls about the importance of listening and learning from conference the week before, and give each girl a copy of your packet. We will follow up the next Sunday and ask them to bring their completed packets for a treat, and discuss what we all learned.
    I will be using it for my YM-aged boys at home,my college-aged kids,and for husband and I as well! =) I will use both the Jr. and Sr. versions for my Primary children as well. You truly do an amazing job. You are great at making it fun and meaningful. I can't thank you enough!

    :-) Is so nice, that this year you have one for the youth too.. I will always print the other one's for my primary kids, and for my family, including myself and my parents :), so we could concentrate :) .. Now, mu husband is working with Young Men, and I think is nice, to give them something to help them to keep focused during conference. I'll be printing one of those for me too :)

  • Margaret

    Thanks, Melanie, for your hard work to put these booklets together. I love the Youth version. We are headed to Texas to spend conference weekend with my brother and his children. I'm excited to take booklets for each of the kids to use during conference. You are incredible! :-)

  • Bonnie Childress

    I hope that people tell you often how awesome all this is and thanks for making our jobs easier!

  • Skipper

    Thank you so much! You have no idea how much use a 27-year-old can get out of these :-) (Let alone a 3-year-old child).

  • Sheena

    Thank you for going through the work of doing this for every general conference. My 5 year old has been loving them for several years now and our 2 year old is just starting to get involved. These packets make conference easier for the kids to sit through (at least part of!) and get something out of it.

  • Amy C

    These are FANTASTIC! Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for continuing to offer these wonderful packets! They certainly make our family enjoyment of General Conference so much easier!

  • Vivien

    Thank you so much - this will really help my 15 year old son who has to give a Sacrament meeting talk next week about what he learns from conference. I was recommended this website by a friend and I will certainly be recommending it to others.
