You’ll absolutely love all of these fun General Conference singing time ideas to help to come up with a fun activity the week before or the week after conference Sunday.
I LOVE General Conference weekend! Not only is it a week off of teaching (it always comes just at the right time when I’m really itching for a week off!) but it’s a chance to fill my own spiritual bucket since each week is spent teaching rather than getting to go to Sunday School or Relief Society lessons.
