Women's Conference

As a former student at Brigham Young University, I remember two days that occurred every year during the transition between winter semester and spring term. These two days were filled with lots of white tennis shoes, hugging, BYU fudge, whistling “As Sisters in Zion,” and yes, more BYU fudge. During these two days, BYU welcomes thousands of women from all over the world to Women’s Conference.

Last week was my first year attending all of the sessions of Women’s Conference. I hadn’t attended up to this point because I always thought it was just a conference for my mom. Well, I’ll be the first to admit I was wrong about that. I’m converted. It was absolutely incredible. It’s like 15,000 of your best friends coming together to talk about the most uplifting things you can think of. I think the Energizer Bunny was working extra hard because everyone attending just seemed happier. And I know I left feeling like a different person—in a great way.

  1. I love this! I feel like I'm 45 years old because I totally want to go to Women's Conference. There are always great speakers and the topics are enlightening. We should go together next year! ;)

  2. I love Women's Conference and am so glad that you went and love it too. I just wish they taped them all and had them available online since you can only choose one out of so many good ones.

  3. i want to go! i love the sound of this.
