In the October 2019 General Conference, President Russell M. Nelson said,
“In the springtime of the year 2020, it will be exactly 200 years since Joseph Smith experienced the theophany that we know as the First Vision. God the Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to Joseph, a 14-year-old youth. That event marked the onset of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness, precisely as foretold in the Holy Bible…
Thus, the year 2020 will be designated as a bicentennial year. General conference next April will be different from any previous conference. In the next six months, I hope that every member and every family will prepare for a unique conference that will commemorate the very foundations of the restored gospel.” – President Russell M. Nelson
He then suggested that we begin our preparations by –
- Reading Joseph Smith’s account of the First Vision
- Incorporating the Book of Mormon videos in our individual and family studies
- Ask yourself / ponder about the following –
- “How would my life be different if my knowledge gained from the Book of Mormon were suddenly taken away?”
- “How have the events that followed the First Vision made a difference for me and my loved ones?”
He continued with this promise –
“Select your own questions. Design your own plan. Immerse yourself in the glorious light of the Restoration. As you do, general conference next April will be not only memorable; it will be unforgettable.” President Russell M. Nelson

We know the restored gospel of Jesus Christ will bring hope and joy to people who will hear and heed His doctrine. We also know that each home can become a true sanctuary of faith, where peace, love, and the Spirit of the Lord may dwell. – President Russell M. Nelson

Hey! I happen to be a member and am a homeschooler, too! I love and appreciate all that you do, especially with this coronavirus stuff, when things get a little complicated. GC is one of my favorite times of the year, and your resources have been absolutely amazing! I love printing out packets and printables for my kids, yet they seem to burn right through them in an hour. I’m wondering if you could possibly make a new GC packet this year, to give them something fresh to work with, and to get them excited about. Maybe incorporating the coronavirus or the bicentennial anniversary could be an interesting tie into it…? I’m not quite sure, but I know that you certainly have the creativity to do it! Thank you for all of the hard work you put into these things, and please consider creating a new GC packet for 2020!
The Restoration Packet is new this year, but I don’t know if we will get to designing a new edition of the original conference packet before April’s conference. We have several more ideas that my kids actually prefer over the packet – maybe your kids will like them too? Try this link – https://www.somewhatsimple.com/?s=general+conference
My kids LOVE the Conference Snack Shop and the Conference Cash. Bingo was added last year and that was a hit with my little kids!
Awww… this is such an awesome packet to help get the kids in the mindset of being ‘immersed in the glorious light of the Restoration’. Thanks for such a great resource. The more I look at what’s in the packet, the more I think it would be fun to do a ‘Restoration Day’ with the kids (and maybe even another family or two!) and make/eat the foods, play the games, talk about the different subjects, etc. and just have a fun family day circa the 1820s. 🙂 The Saturday before Conference would be so fun! Got my brain thinking now… 🙂
Love this Stephanie!
