The General Women’s Conference last night was just awesome. I look forward to it all year long…especially now that I get to take one of my daughters with me! And I love that it fell on Easter weekend this year. We attended the broadcast in our stake center next to the Columbia River Temple. The overall feeling I came away with was that service needs to be our purpose in life…ever reaching out to those in our circle of influence. I especially loved the question to consider — “What if their story were my story?"
Cheryl A. Esplin said, "We live in a contentious world. We give service when we don’t criticize, when we refuse to gossip, when we don’t judge, when we smile, when we say thank you, and when we are patient and kind.”
Another favorite came from Niell F. Marriott: “What does the Savior do continually? He nurtures. He creates. He encourages growth and goodness. Women and sisters, we can do these things!"
Happy Easter! The promise of the Resurrection is real! I find no greater joy than in my efforts to be an honest disciple of Christ. I need Him every day, and I’m grateful to revere Him now and always.
