Young Women's Conference

For those of you who don't know my calling (assignment) in my ward (church) is with the young women. I LOVE my calling! I was put in just over a year ago as an advisor to the laurels (16-18 year-olds) and then I was called to be the secretary. It has been nice not having to teach every week but still getting to be around the girls and hear amazing lessons each week from the other advisors.

Saturday was the General Young Women's Conference and our stake was lucky enough to get tickets to go down to the conference center in Salk Lake to go.

The theme for all of the young women this year is "Stand ye in holy places, and be not moved."
There were 4 talks given. One by each of the young women presidency, Sister Dalton, Sister Dibb, and Sister Cook, and then a talk given by President Dieter Uchtdorf of the first presidency. Each of there talks were so amazing! I felt the spirit of the Lord the moment that the prayer was said and all the way through. Even though these messages were directed toward the youth I felt that the messages applied to me as well. If you would like to view the conference you go follow this link.

One of my favorite quotes from the night came from the talk that Sister Dalton gave. Her talk was all about the things that we should "be not moved" from.

“Be not moved in your acceptance of the Savior’s atonement. The atonement is for you and for me. It is an enabling and redeeming power. If you are not feeling worthy to stand in holy places don’t carry this burden one day longer. In mortality we all make mistakes. Be assured that the savior loves you so much that he made it possible for you to change and to repent if you make a mistake. Now Satan doesn’t want you to think you can change. He will try to convince you that all is lost and that is a lie. You can return, you can repent, you can be pure and holy because of the Savior’s infinite sacrifice.”
