Your October 2021 General Conference Activity Packet

Let me be clear: I don't agree with Elder Steele at all when it comes to his assessment of girls. Not to get too mushy here, but I just happened to marry a woman that checks all of those boxes.

General Conference is mere days away! To help prepare for it, once again I'm publishing a General Conference Activity Packet. It's available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. (Thanks, as always, to Gaby Herrera, Dani Queiroz de Souza, and Sara Mayer!)

In addition to the conference packet, I want to make sure you are aware of all the other resources available on this website.

The Come, Follow Me Activity Page Newsletter is sent to inboxes every Friday morning. It includes an activity page specifically designed with that week's Come, Follow Me lesson in mind. The newsletter is ideal for parents, primary teachers, or anyone who wants to add a little fun to their Come, Follow Me curriculum. Sign up for the free newsletter here.

I've got a number of books in print full of pages and pages of activities to entertain the young and young at heart for hours. Consider the Super Sunday Activity Book, the Scripture Power Activity Book, Now That I am Baptized: A Puzzle Book for LDS Kids, and the Puzzle Book for LDS Kids. If you'd rather laugh than solve puzzles, check out my compilation of missionary comic strips in Mission Daze.

If you've got an Apple device, check out LDS Scripture Heroes and the Book of Mormon Adventure apps.

Zion's Camp

Today's gag corresponds to this week's Come, Follow Me lesson! You know what else corresponds to this week's Come, Follow Me lesson? My weekly activity page newsletter. Oh, and this week's Come, Follow Me with David Ridges podcast hosted once again by me. Zion's Camp is an endless fascinating subject. Researching this week's podcast was a lot of fun.

Agency and Hurt

I suspect every missionary has had a similar conversation at some point during his or her mission.

Pro-Tracters

This is why you need to break up your missionary work into a number of different techniques. Try street contacting for a while, engage the local branch in member missionary work; otherwise you might become a freakish measuring instrument attached to a body.

Seek and Ye Shall Find

Today's gag was drawn in the style of Martin Handford, arguably the second greatest illustrator of crowd scenes ever.* Within my numerous activity books, I've drawn several of these busy crowd scenes and each time I do one, I swear it off forever. That's probably why today's strip is considerably less crowded than your typical Where's Waldo page.

*Sergio Aragones is indisputably the best.

Ouch

Nothing hurts more as a missionary than a promising investigator deciding the Church is not for them.
