This past Thursday and Friday, the 2010 BYU Women’s Conference, co-sponsored by the Relief Society and by Brigham Young University, was held in Provo, Utah, USA. Thousands of women gathered for spiritual and practical instruction, service, and inspiration. The theme this year was taken from Moses 6:33-34: “Choose ye this day to serve the Lord.”

A delayed broadcast of selected classes is scheduled for May 13 and 14. You can also enjoy previous conference talks, either by checking the Women’s Conference archives page, or by going to BYU-TV

Following is an overview of just some of the topics covered in the two days of classes this year:

  • Replacing fear with faith; trusting in the Lord
  • Prioritizing our lives
  • Living within our means; dealing with unemployment; choosing a career
  • Service
  • Marriage, parenting, family relationships
  • Personal and family scripture study
