We are going to start our 40-day Conference Reading Challenge in Relief Society for church. This challenge will start on Aug. 19th and end the Sunday before October General Conference. Can you believe we are that close to Conference?? I made the bookmarks for this reading challenge again, and wanted to share them with you… for those of you that would also like to do this! You read one conference talk per day for 40 days in a row! This is a great review of what we were taught in the April conference and to see if we have applied any of the talks into our lives!
Here are the downloads for the bookmarks. There are 3 to a page and I printed them double sided and then cut them into 3 bookmarks. (I am sorry that these are not perfectly spaced…just trim about 1/4″ around the black line on the reading schedule side!)
These would be great to give to the sisters you visit…as a challenge, or to do together as a family or to challenge a friend, spouse, or neighbor to read with you!
One thing that you can do is to spiral bind your magazine:I love to do this because your magazine will lay out flat. I also use a big paper clip to keep the bookmark in place. But this is just an option if you want to do it. Just take your magazine to a copy center or any place that does book binding. I also like to laminate my front and back cover to give it a little more stability.
It is a great experience to read all of the talks in the suggested random order for 40 consecutive days and remember the counsel that we were given in conference. I included the “News of the Church” as the last reading assignment, so that we could get to know more about some of our new leaders.
I recommend that you purchase your own Conference magazine and a marker, so that you can mark it up and write your own notes and feelings in the margins. You have a week to get everything together and we can all start together next week!
