BYU Women's Conference
Last year I attended a session of the BYU Womens Conference because my friend Rene Hill had to speak about the Atonement. She is a woman in my ward who is the Secretary/Office Manager for the General Primary Presidency. She is also a good friend of mine who I absolutely adore. I wanted to go and support her because she was very nervous about speaking in front of a large crowd. She did a wonderful job and her story was so very touching that the entire auditorium was crying. I cannot express how strong the Spirit and love I felt attending this Conference.
As I walked around the campus of BYU, I was a little sad that I chose not to attend BYU. I was accepted to BYU, but I decided to attend the University of Utah so I could stay home and date Brian. I have never regreted that decision, but there is a part of me that wishes I could have been part of Brigham Young University some how. So for me, it is a real gift and opportunity to be able to attend these type of events and so I jump on it when I can.
Today, I signed up to attend the BYU Womens Conference and I am extending an invitation to anyone that wants to join me for both days, 1 day or even the morning or afternoon of one of the days. Last year I went alone, and I am fine with going alone again, but I would be selfish to not to inform all of you of the Love, Spirit, Education and Bonding that can happen at the Conference. I remember very clearly that when I walked away from the 1 class that I attended, I was never going to miss out on an icredible opportunity like this again.
So please, consider it and come and join me!
