Our family has been trying a new way to read the scriptures together.  In a fireside address given by Elder Choi, he shared how their family would read the articles in the Ensign together and then have a family discussion.  My husband and I loved this idea.  But we decided to make it our own and change it a bit. For almost a year now, we've been reading the General Conference talks on Sunday evening, and then spending the rest of the week looking up scriptures that go with the topic of that talk.

Recently I read online about a General Conference Book Club. I love this idea.  Would I be able to start one where we live now?  Probably not- there are already Institute of Religion classes going on and it may be too much to do in person.  So I thought about finding a club online.  There are a few, but some of them are out dated and another is already half way through all the talks.

So, that left me to putting one together on my own.  Normally I would make the schedule a little bit easier by only reading one talk per week, but I want to get through it before the new Ensign comes out in November. 

I hope you'll join me in reading and sharing any thoughts experiences you've had regarding each topic.  Feel free to invites others to join us as well.  There is so much we can share with and learn about from each other!

We'll start the first week in August.
