Mormon women sing in Marriott Center at BYU Women's Conference

While we wait for the delayed broadcasts and transcripts of this years BYU Women’s Conference general sessions, enjoy some summary posts and news stories about what was discussed.

From LDS Church News
From the blog Chocolate on My Cranium: BYU Women’s Conference 2011: Sister Julie B. Beck

Highlights: Elder Bednar’s message followed the theme about small and simple things.

“I believe many, if not all, of the most satisfying and memorable accomplishments in our homes, in the Church, in our jobs and professions and in our communities will be the product of this important spiritual pattern — of small and simple things,” Elder Bednar said. “We should find great comfort in the fact that ordinary people who faithfully, diligently and consistently do simple things that are right before God will bring forth extraordinary results.”

Sister Beck talked about a variety of topics, including the Relief Society motto, “Charity Never Faileth, ” and also on the divine identity and roles of women and of the Relief Society.

“We have an interesting and exciting, unique female identity,” Sister Beck said. “This identity the Lord has given us is in direct contrast to the debased and devalued identity of women that we find in the world….

“This identity and purpose can only be fully understood through a spiritual confirmation. There is an intellectual study that can be made, but a spiritual confirmation is what teaches us who we are and what we are to do.”
