General Conference Printable Study Guide: October 2018

Hi everyone- Valerie from Occasionally Crafty visiting today with a printable General Conference Study Guide !  

So, I have a confession. General Conference hasn’t always been that important to me. I always knew I should study the talks after conference and do more to improve my life. But sometimes, when I was barely keeping things afloat already, I just couldn’t fathom doing one more thing.

Plus, when there are so many speakers and so many stories, they all run together. Even though I take a lot of notes, I am not good at remembering who spoke about what. If someone jogs my memory, like “I loved when Elder Gong talked about painting with Elder Scott”, then I will excitedly remember the talk and think about it. But I have never been able to just rattle off quotes from General Conference. I probably never will be that person.

If you’re not that person either, you might like the General Conference Study Guide I created. Now, I love General Conference and look forward to seeking direction from God specifically applicable to my life. For this guide, I pulled a quote from each talk by the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles to help jog my memory. If I can at least learn that much, hopefully it will help me remember the rest of their talks.

I also study the talks in depth, one at a time. But having this study guide with me gives me something to focus on for a quick spiritual thought, or just to ponder when I have some down time. I keep a copy in my church binder.

So, why didn’t I include the other talks too? While I did list the other talks, honestly I focused on these because we get quizzed on them in Ward Council.  That’s right– my bishop goes around the room and quizzes us on who said what. (Aren’t you jealous? I don’t enjoy it at all, but I sure am learning my conference talks!) He focuses on the 15 prophets and apostles, so that’s where I spent my time.  I will create an additional page with the other speakers because honestly, some of my favorite talks were by other leaders of the church! I just need more time!

As a Relief Society President, I know many sisters (and families) are much like I used to be– studying General Conference talks just isn’t a priority. This is a great tool to pass out to your organization to help jump start their desire to know the conference talks better. I know that God speaks to us through His Prophets. If those in your class only have time to read a quote, then that’s what He will use to touch their hearts.

If this helps you at all, let me know in the comments! Thanks so much for stopping by.
