40 day conference Feb 2016

40 Day Conference Reading Challenge

Okay everyone…Are you up to the challenge???  I have the new 40 day Conference Reading Challenge.  This  bookmark is for the October 2015 Conference, from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

  I actually was able to get it out a little bit earlier than planned, so you have plenty of time to print them off and get everything ready!  I know that there are quite a few of you that are printing for your ward or stake, so I wanted to give you plenty of time to get them out to everyone!  The reading starts on Feb. 17th and ends on Easter Sunday, a week before the next April Conference!40 day conference Feb 2016

If you are reading these conference talks on your computer or mobile devises, you will need to download the November 2016 Ensign, or Liahona magazine to have the proper page numbers.40 day conference scheduleThis is the jpeg image. 40 day conference bookmark

To print as a jpeg, right click over the image and go to “save image as” then save in a folder.   You can then print them out.  These are formatted to an 8.5 x 11 size page.  The PDF downloads are going to be a better image for printing .  If you would like the downloads,  just click on the link.  This is a double sided book mark.  You will need to trim 1/4″ from the lines on the schedule side.

I also did a 40 Day conference Challenge treat!  sweet is the word

This is a reward for those that participate in this challenge.  There is a free printable bag topper, book mark or candy bar wrapper.

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: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. 

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 few days to get everything together and we can all start together! So that is the 40 Day Conference Reading Challenge!

Are You Up to the Challenge?

  3. I love your 40-Day challenge. I’ve done it twice now and got my entire RS to do it as well. Thanks for putting it together and offering it for others!

    1. Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to write your kind comment. I love that you and your entire RS are doing the challenge…welcome aboard! Good luck with the challenge and Happy Reading! :)

  4. I did your challenge last September and loved it. My husband and I were returning home from an 18 month mission and while we were driving across the country it was a great part of our day. Now I am going to share this challenge with some of my friends and granddaughters. Thanks for the time you spend enriching our conference experience.

    1. Linda, thank you so much for sharing your story! I love to read while traveling…my husband and I do the same thing! I am glad that you want to do the challenge again and that you are bringing in some friends and family with you! Good luck with the challenge and Happy Reading!

    1. Cori, I am glad that you can use one of my ideas. I love that you have a study group and other people to study with, it makes it all the more fun! Hope you have a great day and good luck with the challenge!

  5. Hi, I was just wondering when you will post your bookmark schedules for the April 2016 Conference? My Relief Society is doing this challenge and wants to have their kick off on August 11th. I could make something for it, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be nearly as pretty as yours will be. Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas!

    1. Crystal, I will be posting the 40 day challenge bookmarks sometime next week, but the challenge does not begin until August 17th and it will end the Sunday before conference in Oct. Sorry that does not meet with your schedule, but I am sure your bookmark will be great. It is the challenge that is the important part anyway! Good Luck!

        1. Crystal, Yeah! I have been working on the bookmarks today, so they should be out soon! So glad you can use the bookmarks!

          1. Oh I can’t wait! Thank you so much for doing them. Isn’t it going to start next week? I want to give them to my ladies I VT.

          2. Lisa, the 40 day conference bookmarks for the April Conference will be out tomorrow and the challenge starts of Aug. 17th. Good luck with the challenge!

  6. Do you have one for the October 2016 General Conference? Wanting to challenge our Relief Society sisters and thinking of doing it in January to start the year off right. Thoughts? Thanks.

    1. Alysa, I will not be doing one until 40 days before the April Conference, so it will start in Feb. You could make your own schedule though and start it in January, they are not hard to do. Just assign one talk for each day that you would like to do the challenge. Hope this helps. Good luck with your challenge!

  7. Would you be willing to send me your images in and add a ruble format? I would like to create this from the April 2017 conference however I seriously like computer skills it would be nice if I could start the base of what you’ve created. Let me know or maybe you’ve already completed one but I haven’t seen . This is a brilliant idea thanks for sharing!

    1. Marye, Those are purchased images that I can use with my commercial use license, so I cannot send them to you. I will be doing another 40 day conference challenge for the April conference a couple of months before the next Oct. conference. Hope that helps.
