“Decide now to make general conference a priority in your life. Decide to listen carefully
and follow the teachings that are given. Listen to or read the talks more than once to better
understand and follow the counsel”
.  - Paul Johnson


I love, love, love General Conference.  It is the reason I started creating General Conference packets years ago.  I debated on not doing them this year....let's just say I'm kinda burned out.  HOWEVER, I decided instead to update some of my older packets.  In addition to that, I've tried to list the many helps that you could use specificly for conference.  My hope is that you will find lots of ideas that will help your family, church group and/or yourself get more from conference.   

HERE ARE MY CONFERENCE PACKETS FOR APRIL 2012:

Primary Packet (black and white)
Youth Packet (color) (black and white)
Adult Packet - (black and white)  I took an older youth packet I made and updated it for this conference.  It could be used for the youth or for adults.

 Just thought I'd share we do in our family for General Conference.  The Monday before Conference we have a special Family Home Evening on the Prophet and Apostles. (This time we are going to watch the "Apostle Song" video to help familiarize them with the General Authorities.) Then on Saturday morning before Conference, each child receives a special gift bag containing a coloring book (that I printed using Church Coloring Pages), a Conference Bingo Card, Apostle Cards, Prophet Matching Game, etc. as well as new colored pencils or crayons and a treat. Something to look forward to and keep them focused on Conference.  (Idea by Wendy Artman / ga09262008)

OBJECT LESSONS:

 I did an object lesson once, played different voices of popular people (entertainment type people that the youth would easily recognize) and had them guess who they were. Then I played the voices of different Apostles and the First Presidency and had them guess those too. It was an awakening for some of the youth on who's voice they know better!  If you are technology deficient like I am, I just used the memo feature on my cell phone to record the sound bytes.  (Idea by Mary Ahn)
