Women's Conference.......................



What a nice day...couldn't have asked for anything better! To start off, beautiful weather....wonderful women wanting to be "spiritually fed" (which they were) and good food! We met early to prepare the 'brunch' type food...yogurt parfaits, fruit, bagels with flavored cream cheese, milks,water and orange juice. Then, time for the meeting to start....what a privilege it was to meet with Carole Mikita, Stake Relief Society Presidency and President Porter to have a prayer before the meeting started so we could calm down and put us in the mind frame to teach and be taught. Carole Mikita is truly an elect lady who has such a strong testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. of which she is more than willing to share with anyone and everyone. She is congenial and truly loves all sisters, wants the best for everyone. We were spiritually fed by her testimony and life's experiences...her humility and love for the gospel were felt by all and we were richly blessed for being at this conference. Then the workshops! We had 4 to pick from...you would pick 2 to attend. What a wonderful group of sisters willing to share with us their knowledge and testimonies....we are so grateful to them, they took time out of busy schedules and away from their families to teach us those things that will eventually bring us to Eternal life with our families. We love these sisters, as well as those who were in attendance. The Lord in mindful of all of us individually...he knows of our wants and righteous desires..he will bless us and teach us everything we need to know to return to Him...we are so blessed to have the knowledge we have and should share it at any time... it is our privilege to know those things we do and our responsibility to share it with those who don't....I truly have a testimony of the Gospel...being in the Stake Relief Society and a part of planning such a wonderful day, I can tell you with no uncertain terms that He had a hand in everything that happened today...as a matter of fact, everything that did happen was from Him to enrich our lives and strengthen our families..it's was a privilege to be a part of this great day and feel the spirit that was with us...thanks to all those who helped make this a successful day..including our husbands, what great men they are and so willing to follow directions, keep everything running while we were busy, and be there to help us at any time....also thanks to my daughter Staci...I can't tell you the great help she was to us this year and last...luv you guys tons.

LuAnn --
What an excellent report! Your really captured the essence of the meeting. I, like you, was so impressed by Carole Mikita. I can't believe she really spoke in our meeting! The Lord really did have a hand in making sure this meeting happened. I love watching the sisters come into the chapel -- dressed up and ready for a special occasion.

I love serving with you in the RS -- you are an amazing lady and I can feel your testimony through this blog post.

Thank you so much --
Judy

Looks like you've been having some good times! Sorry, I'm a little behind on everyone's blogging. Sounds like it was a great meeting!

I'll have to tell my mom to get going on blogging, I wish she would! Trent actually set them up a blog a LONG time ago - they've never done anything with it! I'll let her know you inquired!
