Women's Conference

This session of general conference has been filled by uplifting messages and revelatory announcements.  Pres. Nelson informed the members of a new in-home learning curriculum that would begin on January 1, 2019. In conjunction with the new instruction, Sunday meetings would be reduced from three hours to two in order to allow families the time they need to study together.

I have looked over the content for the first couple of weeks in January. They are set up like a Sunday school lesson would. I am glad to have the next couple of months to figure out how our family will implement the new assignment.

To make the Women's Conference special, I hosted a dinner and invited women that are special to the girls in our family. I enjoyed it so much, I think it may become a new annual tradition.

We had a fancy meal, with fancy place setting, and fancy food. Everyone enjoyed each other's company immensely.

Each person got a notebook and smelly gel pen to use for taking notes during the session.

Then we headed down to our theater to listen to the admonitions and instructions shared with us by the First Presidency and General Women leaders of the church.
