Every 6 months comes around, and boom, its General Conference time again. It's basically the equivalent to the super bowl of spirituality for us Mormon folk (minus the football, beer commercials, and Justin Timberlake). Every time GC comes around, I try to dedicate myself to sit down, and actually pay attention to the talks, and try to create an environment to listen to what the spirit has to teach me. Because I'm weak and also ADHD, this tends to be a really hard task. Sometimes it's even more exciting to get the live play by play stories on other people's Instagram stories than it is to actually watch it. This year, I have rededicated myself to this goal, but this time, I wanted to make this goal more specific. In the past, I have taken notes during conference, but majority of the time is spent trying to write down everything the speaker is saying, and I forget that the talks will be available online later. I was in sacrament meeting the other day, and had the thought to make a GC notebook, but also creating it to be a free printable. Each of these questions that I included in this notebook, were things that came to my mind as I pondered what kind of questions I should include. I love how these questions narrow in on the important things. Instead of spending time trying to write down everything, it lets the listener be able to record the important stuff.
Here's some ideas of who you can share this notebook with!
- Your primary kids/ youth in your ward or class
- Your missionary/their companion/their investigators or include it in a GC care package
- Yourself! (of course)
- Your visiting teachees
Please tag my instagram in your photos of how you're using your free printable. I'd love to see, and it helps my page! Make sure you're following me, so I can see the tagged posts :)
So here's how the files work:
Download the files under the "freebie page"
The files include an assortment of covers sized 8.5x11 and 5.5x8.5 (a paper cut in half) and the matching page inserts. I suggest printing the pages front and back (save the planet!!!) and print as many pages as you'll need. I figured the amount of talks and printing would be around 8.5x11- (19 pages) and 5.5x8,5- (10 Pages) (this is with printing front and back).
There's also a back page for the 8.5x11 books, and the back page is included on the cover for the 5.5x8.5 (just print it as a landscape on a whole page.
You can take your printed book to your local shipping or print store to have the covers laminated and the book bound OR if you would like me to create your booklet and I can ship it to you (or your missionary/whoever):
-Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
-Specify the cover/what size you would like
- Include shipping address and Venmo name (so I can send you a Venmo request! If you don't have Venmo, let me know)
- Small Booklets: $8.00, Large Booklets: $12.00 (this includes free shipping in the continental US)
