Sister Beck's 2011 BYU Women's Conference talk on demand

~by Michelle

I’ve been looking forward to the rebroadcasts of the 2011 BYU Women’s Conference. I was thrilled that BYU-TV has made many of the talks available on demand.

We’ll be sharing a few of the talks here. Today, we’re posting Sister Beck’s address (video is embedded below). I was moved by how much she has thought about this message (she’s been pondering it for a year, since last year’s BYU Women’s Conference). Note how she talks about talking to thousands of women, listening to their concerns, writing down their questions, and recording answers that come to her. People may wonder how women lead in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sister Beck is a beautiful example of that. She reaches out, she listens, she seeks to live so that she can get answers from heaven to help the sisters around the world.

Note also her answers about whether women should work, about women and the priesthood, and other important topics. This is a talk I will want to listen to more than once. I appreciated, too, how she summarized many of the other things she has talked about, like being lionesses at the gate, standing strong and immovable, and more.

Read what others have to say about her talk here, here, and here. You can read a summary of her talk at the LDS Church News website.

And you can watch Sister Beck’s talk at BYU-TV [edited because the video embed feature was disabled].

[Edited to add] The transcript of Sister Beck’s 2011 BYU Women’s Conference talk is now available.
