General Women's conference March 2014

I loved general conference this month and enjoyed so much attending the Historic new Women's general meeting with both my daughters in the conference center. What a joy to have my 8 year old daughter with me and enjoy the messages of hope and unity with both her and my 13 year old.

The first speaker was the General Primary President who really focused on the sweet new young women who were invited to the meeting for the first time. She had all the 8-11 year old stand and help her sing the first verse of Teach me to walk in the Light. It was so sweet and powerful to hear their sweet young voices.

My notes from her message are as follows. These are the things that touched my heart

We will stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all places
As we take of the sacrament we look to the temple
Together with God we are unstoppable

Sis Oscarson the Young womens president
We rejoice in the ways we are different
There is an unbreakable bond between us as sisters
Feminine nurturing between generations
There is no age barrier in Christ like service
The missionary service by our sisters is a testimony of "the errand of angels is given to women"
"Oh how we need each other"
Love each other more and better

Sister Burton the Relief Society General president

Perfect means Complete
Disciples give up things of the world to come follow Jesus
There is High adventure in the service of the Lord
We cannot do it alone
Keep covenants-That's what disciples do

Pres Eyring

Path is marked by sacred covenants
Trials perfectly chosen for you to learn
Prepare children to receive and make covenants
Clapped your hands "This is the desire of our hearts"
You are one of the favored few who kows of the covenants and are able to make them
He sees not only what you are but also what you can be
Eve- The mother of all living she was full of Courage and wisdom
Helpmeet- helped her family find the path home
Eve was glad- when the path was hard because she could have seed, knowledge and progress
Sure as she kept covenants Savior would see her through any sorrows
He will provide the help that you need to move yourself and others up the path
