A few of us went to Women’s Conference, and we thought we’d share some of our photos with you.
The weather was cold. We even got some snow.
But that didn’t stop the thousands of women from bustling around the BYU campus, getting all they could out of the conference.
Every year, dozens of women join the “instant choir” — learning pieces together early in the morning to perform together in the Marriott Center.
Speaking of the Marriott Center, there is nothing quite like gathering together for the general sessions. One sister commented that she would be happy just sitting there, singing, for hours. The Spirit is strong as we sing and learn together. We feel the power of womanhood. Our faith in the Savior is strengthened, and our resolve to follow Him increased.
Another highlight is the service projects that take place on Thursday evening. This year, projects included making tutus, wands, activity kits and other items for children in hospitals. Women also worked together on humanitarian supplies such as hygiene kits, newborn kits, school kits, and fleece blankets.
Women can also wander around dozens of “Sharing Stations” to get thoughts and ideas to help us in our personal lives, and in our efforts to serve in our families, communities, and Church assignments.
You can find a wealth of information from past years’ BYU Women’s Conference Sharing Stations: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. We’ll let you know when this year’s virtual sharing stations are published.
All in all, it was a wonderful conference. Jen described it in this way: “[It’s] sort of like the thanksgiving feast that you never want to end and upon putting the last bite in your mouth, wishing you could do or all over again.” We hope you get a chance to enjoy some of the counsel and inspiration by listening to talks as they are rebroadcast. We’ll also let you know when transcripts are posted.

I went to Women’s Conference — it was like being in heaven for two days! — and yet I am still learning more as I listen to the rebroadcasts!
It truly is a feast for the soul!
Oh! How I wish I could become Mormon, just to participate in an event as wonderful as this! The article
offers a superb rendering of the Spirit that comes through so strongly and it is so gratifying to see the
joy and fun that the service projects provided! You ladies are SO fortunate, which, I’m sure ,you know. Trust me -that there is nothing remotely like this in the NYC Tri-State area. You ladies are truly blessed; thanks a million for sharing those blessings with others.
Thanks for your comment. FYI, you don’t have to be Mormon to come! 😉 Maybe next year you can join us! Send us an email if it’s something you would like to do. (There’s another big conference at BYU in August called Education Week, too.)
Thanks for the photos. It’s been a few years since I’ve gone, and I have such fond memories of being there.
It really is great to meet with all those great women.
