LDS General Conference is something I look forward to for months! Not even exaggerating, as soon as the session ends in April, I am already looking forward to October. So naturally, when Brooklyn tossed me the idea of collaborating on a free printable specifically for Conference, I dropped everything and got to work! This is the perfect thing to print out give to families you home teach and use in your personal scripture study this week as we lead up to Conference to make sure you get the most of the talks and inspiration that will be shared this weekend.
Brooklyn chose a quote from Elder Robert D. Hales' talk in October 2013 Conference that fits perfectly with the idea of this printable.
"Conference messages come to us after prayerful preparation, through the Holy Ghost. This principle is true for all members of the Church as we prepare to participate in ward, stake, and general conferences. We study out in our minds what we need and desire from Heavenly Father, and we pray to understand and apply that which we are taught. As the time for conference arrives, we sacrifice other activities, 'lay[ing] aside the things of this world, [to] seek for the things of a better.'"
To go along with Elder Hales' wisdom, the printable also includes a space to list problems and trials you are currently facing, questions you have about the gospel, areas of your testimony that need strengthening, and what you would like to take away from General Conference so you can ponder and be spiritually prepared to hear the answers you are needing at this time in your life.
We kept it pretty neutral so it can be used for each session of Conference, regardless of year, and the printable even includes a plain black and white version if you want to keep it simple and hand out a bunch of them to your Sunday School classes, etc. I am really excited about how it turned out and I can't wait to use it to help my family get the most of our LDS General Conference experience this weekend!
