Every General Conference, our family searches for activities to do as we listen to the talks. We have two sons who are 10 years apart. This year, I’m surprising them with this word search. I like that it teaches the names of the Brethren in the First Presidency, as well as the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. All are listed in order of their roles, as well.
So if you’d also like a little something to share with your children who can read, we’re happy to share.

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!
Our family enjoyed a fabulously-relaxing conference weekend…complete with cinnamon rolls, pj’s and an epic King Benjamin blanket fort. Of course with all that baking, lounging and fort making it was a little tricky to take great notes on my favorite talks. Luckily LDS.org has saved me again. On the site today you can find 25 beautiful, shareable memes that cover some of my favorite thoughts from conference…like this one from President Eyring.
Or this one from Cheryl A. Esplin.
Or this beautiful thought from our prophet, Thomas S. Monson
All of the images are available in English and Spanish and can be downloaded in a variety of sizes. Share them on you facebook wall, set them as the wallpaper on your computer, or simply print them and table them to your bathroom mirror. They’re the perfect way to keep the words of conference close to our minds and hearts. Just click here to view all 25 memes.

It was hard for me to say goodbye to Easter in March this year… So much to learn and feel during this season and wish it had stretched into April and warmer weather.
I am looking forward to General Conference Weekend… Three more sleeps and we will be making yummy meals and listening to words that will guide and lift us. How blessed we are! I used to think I needed to take notes on everything and would spend more time writing down thoughts than actually listening. Somewhere along the way, I learned that by praying to be touched by the spirit while I watched or listened to Conference, I may know what is personally meant for me, at this time in my life. I spend my time listening and take fewer notes and for me the experience has become more personal.
April brings us our Visiting Teaching Message “We are Daughters of our Heavenly Father“. It brings me a lot of comfort knowing that I am His. In the store I own Pebbles in my Pocket in Orem Utah, we make an affordable Visiting Teaching Message and Treat each month that goes along with the theme. It’s a fun way to treat your sisters. They are also available at pebblesinmypocket.com. Many times, sisters will order together and share the minimal shipping cost. You can find them here.
I hope you enjoy this weekend. Stop by and say Hi when you are in our area. I would love to meet you! Take care! Brenda
