Last night I was reminded in a literal way what I find beautiful about gathering together with my sisters in Zion. Although I have an aversion to crowds, when my ward announced we had some tickets for the Young Women General Meeting I snagged some for my daughter and made arrangements to go up with some other mothers and sisters in our ward.

Enjoy this beautiful essay by Dalene about her experience attending the General Young Women’s Meeting in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City last Saturday night. This essay captures much about the power of gathering, about the beauty of sisterhood, and about our gratitude for a living prophet, and a little about what General Conference means to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
