women's conference


i am off to women's conference  for the next two days...i am so excited.  my sister and i have been going every year for the last 8 or 9 years and it is such an awesome experience.  it's just what this lady needs to get back in touch with the things that are important in life.  it's amazing how far off track i let myself get sometimes.  for some reason i always come away with a renewed sense of who i am and what my purpose here is.  there is something about sitting in the marriott center with about 18,000 other women who have the same worries, thoughts, dreams, and goals as you do and knowing that you are not alone.  also to hear all of their voices singing hymns together is an awesome experience.  i cry ever time, just ask ginny.  it just touches me in my heart.  this year we have gotten a hotel room so that we can stay for the thursday night activities.  there is always a concert and lots of opportunities to do things for the humanitarian center.  i just love every minute of the time spent there listening to the amazing speakers and spending time with my sister.  i'll tell you all about it when i get home.

i was so awesome! i tell ya it's just what i needed. president monson was the closing speaker and it was so great to hear him speak. when he came into the marriott center everyone was standing of course and we all started to sing 'we thank thee oh god for a prophet' and those tears i was talking about kicked in. it's still so weird to not have president hinckley there. it'll take some getting used to but i love president monson too! ya'll should try and go next year...it is a great thing.
