40 Day Conference Challenge-Oct 2016

Okay everyone…Are you up to the challenge???  

Today I have the new 40 day Conference Reading Challenge.  This  bookmark is for the Oct 2016 Conference, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The 40 Day Conference Challenge-Oct 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 conf. challenge Oct 2016

First of all you will need to have a copy or download of the November Ensign with the conference talks.    Included in the reading, is an article from the Church News  in the back of the magazine, so therefore, you need a copy of the Nov. issue.

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, Feb 15,  you will read one article a day for 40 days.  You will complete the conference talks on the Sunday before the next April conference!

It has the schedule of which article to read that day.  

There are three to a page for those of you that are printing multiple bookmarks.  This is the JPEG format, but I suggest clicking on the PDF downloads for a better quality image!

 The back has a wonderful quote from President Hinckley about learning!

Most of all if you like your magazine to lay flat…it is a great idea is to spiral bind your magazine:conference magazine   Just take your magazine to a copy center or any place that does book binding.  It is also a good idea to laminate the front and back cover to give it a little more stability.

Lastly…you can also use a big paper clip to keep the bookmark in place.

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-Oct 2016!

Are You Up to the Challenge?

Thanks for Visiting!

  6. Hi- I love this idea. I wanted to issue a challenge to my RS to read the conference talks this summer. I love this bookmark. Do you have this in a format that I could type the Spring 2017 talks into? If so, I’d love to use this for my ladies:)

    1. Kimberly, I do not have a new bookmark for April conference. I usually put out the challenge 40 days before the next conference. So it will not be until then that I do the new bookmark. Sorry.
