Women's Conference 2009 -- A Special Time with my Mom and Sister

Being with my Sister and my sweet Mother, listening to uplifting music, gathering information from speakers, Utah's snow cap mountains, visiting family, Temple square and feeling the ever so strong spirit ='s a wonderful week in UTAH! I had a great time this past week listening to speakers talk about our Savior and giving me much needed information on how I can become a better me. I can't wait until next year! We drove down on Wednesday and yes we shopped and shopped and then finally arrived at Verl's (my cousin) late. We had to be up early to get to the conference. Thankfully Verl's house was very close to campus. We made it to the opening session and from that time forward it was a very big spiritual high. Thursday night was definitely a highlight for me....we had the opportunity to hear several awesome music artists. My favorite being Hilary Weeks! After the show you could get autographs and pictures with each artist. We loved every minute of it! Friday's closing session was L. Tom Perry. Wow so awesome! He urged us to use our blogs, utube, and facebook to share the gospel. So use it girls! On Saturday we made a quick stop by Temple was raining but the sun did peek through. I think this was one of my favorite trips. I am thankful for a sweet mother who cared enough to share this awesome experience with me!

Wow, Holli - that looks like a fantastic trip! I saw Hillary Weeks at Time Out for Women and I agree, she is so great! I am glad you got to enjoy a spiritual experience and the beauty of Utah.
