This General Conference Packet is designed to assist older youth (as well as adults) get the most out of General Conference. It is designed to have a Pre-Conference Activity as well as Post-Conference Activity. This is not just simply something to do during General Conference to past time, but to sincerely listen to the prophets and apply their counsel in our personal lives.

For those that want something to keep you occupied, try my word-search puzzles.

”Decide now to make general conference a priority in your life. Decide to listen carefully and follow the teachings that are given. Listen to or read the talks more than once to better understand and follow the counsel. By doing these things, the gates of hell will not prevail against you, the powers of darkness will be dispersed from before you, and the heavens will shake for your good.” – Paul V. Johnson, “The Blessings of General Conference,” Ensign, November 2005, 50.

Before Conference:
* Start thinking now about questions or concerns you have. Write them down, and pray that you will find solutions and guidance during conference.
* Do those things which invite the Spirit into your life so you will have a better understanding of what will be taught.
* Have a willing heart, ready to obey the words of the prophets.
* Be awake for conference. Get a good night’s sleep.
* Prepare a notebook, pens, your scriptures, and anything else you might need.
* Pray for those who are assigned to speak.

During Conference:
* Attend or view all the sessions, including the priesthood session for priesthood bearers or the General Young Women Meeting for women.
* Listen carefully, not just to the speakers, but to the prayers and songs also.
* Keep notes, including any inspiration you might receive during conference.
* Listen earnestly for answers to the questions you have.
* Between conference sessions, participate in activities that will invite the Spirit.

After Conference:
* Follow the prophets by obeying their counsel.
* Remember the inspiration you had while you were listening to conference. Make goals right away to motivate you to do what you felt inspired to do.
* Reread the conference talks in the May Ensign. Studying the words of the prophets again will help you remember their most current counsel for you.
