General Conference Book Club!

It is a sad day in the blogging world.

Stephanie at Diapers and Divinity, the long time (since 2009!!) host of General Conference Book Club is retiring (from GCBC, not from blogging - as far as I know). I asked her if she would mind if I kept the online tradition alive here at My Soul Delighteth, and she gave me the OK!

She also has a post today about how to start up your own General Conference Book Club. You can start a General Conference Book Club community at home, or online, via email, whatever floats your boat. Stephanie gives you some great tips. And check out Jocelyn's blog for an example of an "in real life" GCBC. If you do one in real life, make sure food is involved. If you feed them, they will come. Just sayin'

Well, if you are excited to get on with Week 1 of General Conference Online Book Club, then here is the place! Give us some comments on your favorite General Conference talk, what stuck out to you, what you felt prompted to do (if it isn't too personal).

Also, we'll be having some great discussion over at Real Intent this week, so make sure to join that discussion if you don't find this satisfying enough.

I will be adding a linky tool to each GCBC post so that you can write an entire blog post about the talk and link up at General Conference Book Club.

If you are new to General Conference Book Club, we read one talk each week and then come here to discuss and write about the talk, or link up your writing from your own blog. You can also find more information on the About GCBC page here.


  1. Glad you are carrying this on! We are still meeting in person. Studying conference talks weekly for two years has changed me

    1. I am thinking about starting up a "in real life" GCBC this time in addition to hosting the online version. I love talking about the gospel with my friends ;)

  2. I thought that there were several repetitive themes as well as scriptures throughout the sessions of conference. Loved President Monson's facial expressions and appreciated his thoughts on obedience. But what really struck a cord was Sister Wixom. I can't wait to re-read all of the talks and try to listen to them as well. And excited to participate!

  3. One thing I have noticed each conference is there are certain quotes that stand out, afterwards we see them all over social media or hear them repeated... isn't it interesting that out of all the words spoken, most if not ALL of us who listen come away with similar quotes that stuck out to us?! That is just something I found interesting and I am excited to participate in this with y'all!!!


What makes your soul delight? This is my invitation to you to share your thoughts right here on my blog. I read every one of them, and I appreciate them!
