5 INVITATIONS TO PREPARE FOR THE 2020 BICENTENNIAL GENERAL 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!

August Visiting Teaching Kit

August 2016VT slider box_SD
As I thought this week about how our words influence the love and nurturing that occurs in our homes, I was struck by the similarities to raspberries– they can be tart or they can be sweet!  This epiphany was the catalyst for this month’s message, which is full of raspberries and, of course, Sweet Tarts!

And let me just say a word about the recipe for this month–these Raspberry ‘Sweet’ Rolls are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  I am a huge believer in easy roll recipes, so I got creative and combined a couple of my recipes for the dough and the fillings and this raspberry-cream-cheese-fluffy-dough beauty was born!  Using instant yeast it took me about an hour and half from start to finish– and if you know anything about sweet/cinnamon roll recipes, this is incredibly fast!  I hope you give it a try!

Enjoy the BONUS “missed you” door hangers for those sisters that just seem to be on vacation all summer long. 😉
