So, after I finally finished last week’s lesson for this week… I decided I wanted to do something else for FHE tonight 😛 General Conference is coming up this weekend and I wanted to talk to my sons about that to get them prepared. So I started on it this morning and came up with what I wanted to tell them and some visual aids to go along with it. It’s not as awesome as I would like, but for having decided that I wanted to do this earlier this morning and working with toddlers underfoot – it’s pretty darn ok 🙂 You can see a copy of the visual aids I created above. The clip art I used is from a few different sources so it doesn’t match perfectly, but it was good enough for my purposes. Maybe some day I’ll get everything in it that I want. I’m also planning on using a picture of the quorum of the twelve apostles and the first presidency with this lesson if I can get my husband to pick them up on his way home. Hope someone else’s family enjoys this too!
Update: For my own family I made this lesson into a PowerPoint Presentation (because that’s just how I roll). Anyways, if anyone else would like to use that I’ve included it here – Prophets & General Conference Slideshow. I like this format personally because it has all the text of the lesson on the screen so you can pretty much just read from the screen, and have the visuals display as you go. It also makes the prophets matching game a little more interactive.
