General Conference Weekend April 2014

Twice a year, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meet together in "General Conference".  This is an opportunity to hear from our Prophet, Apostles and General Church Leadership.  It is a time of year I often look forward to.

As a child, I didn't always have the 'attention span' to appreciate this spiritually rich experience.  So, I want to offer other parents out there some fun and meaningful activities that your children and grandchildren may enjoy.

I made this game that fits inside of a "Guess Who" game.  You can download it for free at this link!

Below is a list of other great ideas that are easily printed for use.  

Now.....let's talk about Breakfast!

Do you recognize it yet?  It is a version of homemade "Grape Nuts".  Here is's recipe.  I love how it uses shelf stable foods (you could choose to use powdered milk with vinegar for the buttermilk) and makes a delicious and nutritious cereal.  This blogger calculates that it cost her $2.00 to make an amount that is twice the volume of the brand name box you can purchase at the store.  It's easy!  Try it!

Homemade Grape Nuts Cereal
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
1 cup sucanat (or brown sugar)
2 cups buttermilk (or milk mixed with 2 Tablespoons vinegar)
2/3 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients together, beating well until smooth.  Spread mixture onto a parchment paper lined (or well buttered) cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes in a 375° oven. Remove cereal from the oven, and cool completely.  Once cool, grind in a food processor until it becomes “crumb like.”
Return crumbs to cookie sheet or a large baking pan.  Bake in a 250° oven for one hour or until crisp, stirring every 15 minutes.

To watch General Conference, check your local listing for your Television service.  You may also watch all sessions here.  

In a crazy world with crazy people doing crazy things in the name of love, religion, or politics.....take this time to be taught by the true Prophet and Apostles of the Lord.  The Lord and our Heavenly Father have their arms open and outstretched to all of us.  This is true no what matter our station in life is or our location.  Come and be "Spiritually Fed "this weekend!
