My Review

GROWING UP WITH CONFERENCE was a fun book full of ideas to help prepare, enjoy, and apply General Conference. It was organized into three sections: Learn, Listen and Live It, with activities, crafts, Family Home Evening lessons, and some recipes. There were also links to some free printables. If you have children and are looking for a way to enhance your General Conference experience, then this can be a helpful resource.

I liked how there were different levels of ideas in this book. Some would work for younger kids best and some were for older kids and some could even work for teens. There were also things that would be applicable to adults. There were a few things that I wouldn't use and one of the games that was called "Conference Madness" didn't have any relation to conference, but most of the ideas I found to be helpful

I do wish that this was in print with an accompanying CD because it was a pain to find everything through the links and download it all. There are also a few things that would be nice to print from the book, but as it's in ebook only and those few things don't have links to where to print them, that's not possible. I'm not quite sure if that was completely thought through.

The bottom line is that I found this inspirational and motivating. The biggest thing to me was that it made me think about how I prepare for conference and how I can do better and help my family do better too. I loved that I am now thinking about how I can make conference something fun that my children are excited about and to better learn about the apostles, particularly the newer ones.

In the end, was it what I wished for? Overall, this was an inspiring book to motivate me to better prepare for conference and apply it in our lives.
