I just returned from attending the first time ever General Women’s Meeting with both my girls. What a blessing! To be honest, I didn’t realize there had been an announcement of a change to the annual Relief Society and Young Women’s broadcasts until yesterday but was trilled to be joined by not only Thisbe to a semiannual meeting but Bronwyn a well.
If you would like more information about the General Women’s Meeting see the link on the work announcement above and or this link to an interview of Sister Marriott.
Here are a few of my thoughts from the meeting
This gathering is GREAT!!
I am a child of God. I am his daughter.
Christ will “Lead me, Guide me, Walk beside me, Help me find the way. Teach me all that I must do, To live with Him someday.”
As His daughters we all have a job to do. We are all needed.
Look to Mormon’s example of knowing who he is.
Look to the examples of great women
I am a daughter in the covenant.
“I will head not what the wicked may say, but the Lord alone I will obey”
I was feeling overwhelmingly (read tears) connected to the sisters present. Both in our meeting house but also all over the world. During one of the songs I thought about the fact that many of the women that I love were watching this meeting at the same time I was. My family and friends in Washington, and so many ladies I have known and loved in our travels with school and military. BYU, Huber Heights, Bothell/Kenmore, Turkey, Biloxi, and now in Lincoln, Nebraska. I could imagine them sitting beside me as we listened to the speakers and sang songs together side by side with our daughters. What a wonderful feeling.
You can find the conference and watch it yourself at LDS.org.
