40 Day Conference Challenge-April 2016

Okay everyone…Are you up to the challenge???  I have the new 40 day Conference Reading Challenge.  This  bookmark is for the April 2016 Conference, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The 40 Day Conference Challenge-April 2016, will begin next week!  So today I have the bookmarks ready for you to print and to start getting all your supplies together!40 day conference reading challengeYou need to have a copy or download of the May Ensign with the conference talks, because I have included a few articles from the Church News and Making Conference a part of our lives in the back of the magazines.  I recommend getting your very own copy of the magazine, a highlighter and a pen to mark with and take notes in the margins!  Starting next Wed, Aug 17,  you will read one article a day for 40 days.  You will complete the conference talks on the Sunday before the next October conference! (Can you believe it will soon be time for Conference again?)40 Day conf. reading-April 2016This is the front of the bookmark.  It has the schedule of which article to read that day.  There are three to a page for those of you that are doing multiple bookmarks.  This is the JPEG format, but I suggest clicking on the PDF downloads for a better quality image!  I created a new back this time.  It has a wonderful quote from President Hinckley about learning!

sweet is the word

One thing that you can do is to spiral bind your magazine:conference magazineI 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. 

You have a few days to get everything together and we can all start together! So this is the 40 Day Conference Challenge-April 2016!

Are You Up to the Challenge?
