Women's Conference!! April 30th-May 1st

I got invited a few months ago to go to Women's Conference. I went with Jennette Larsen and Peggy West these are 2 women that I served with in the Primary in Linden. We had the best time and the time went by so quickly. It was my first time to attend and I was there with approx 16,000 other women. I even ran into a few women that I know and love (joanne warren, carol sue holden, andalynn baum and deni bigler berger) what are the odds!! I was so spiritually fed that after a while I couldn't remember what speaker said what (thank goodness i took notes).

Can you tell that Peggy works with teenage girls, she has the pose down perfect!!!!! We took Peggy to the Salt Lake Temple for a live session, she had never been before, we were in awe. I think the SaltLake Temple is BEAUTIFUL, it's one of my favorites:)

Here we are in the Marriott Center, we started the Conference here and ended it here. Elder L.Tom Perry was the closing speaker and he was amazing. He talked a lot about the worlds perception of our religion and missionary work.

Here are a "few" things that I learned at Women's Conference.
*Being a women and a member of the Relief Society is such a BLESSING!!
*I can make a difference!!
*It is important to say "Never The Less".
*When you choose to follow Christ, you choose to be changed!!
*Trials - are "Divinely Architect ed" for us.
*Personal Integrity is always doing what is right and good no matter what the circumstance.
*I can find all the answers to raising/teaching children in the Book of Mormon!!
*I need to make time for Holy Habits and I need to create time for stillness.
*When we refuse to serve the Lord in ANY manner, it diminishes our FAITH.
*The Savior, who always put the will of our Heavenly Father first, had a MOTHER who did the same!!!!
*When God comes first in our lives, whatever comes second will always be RIGHT!!!

I learned so much and I am so grateful for good friends. Everywhere I have lived the Lord has "plopped" amazing women in my life/path, what a blessing they are to me!!!!!!!
