Blog Tour - Growing Up with Conference



About the book: Make General Conference fun year-round! From the creators of the Sweetly Made (Just For You) website comes a new book filled with fun and creative ways to get your family excited for General Conference, including crafts, recipes, FHE lessons, and more!

My review: Wow, I wish I had had this book a few weeks ago during General Conference! It's great. It's full of ideas to prepare yourself and your family before conference even starts, including using service, and family home evening lessons.

Then there's things to do during conference, ways to keep your kids engaged, even the littlest ones. Craft ideas for conference as well. Service ideas you can do during conference, meals to make for after conference. And treat ideas for during conference.


Then there's also ideas for family home evenings after conference and how to take the messages we heard at conference into our lives. All with fun pictures and ideas from real moms with real kids. I love this great resource and can't wait to use it next conference, but I'll probably start using some of the after conference ideas now!


I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
