General Confrence Weekend

We decided the little ones would be better off with gran this time she would be watching the conference at home so if they became unsettled they could get up and move around however Ruth Sean and myself would complete all conference sessions we were invited to. This began with Ruth’s Young Women Conference broadcast from Ayr Ward followed by Saturday Morning Broadcast.

We arrived in good time and dad and I settled down to listen to conference in the quite room allowing Ruth her independence in going with other young women however she came back in a flurry saying no other young women had came...................

Ruth and I went into conference accompanied by a Stake Young Women leader and her husband. It was a wonderful meeting, at one point we were both in tears and frequently sat hugging each other and I can honestly say we shared a beautiful spirit between us. The fact that Ruth sat alone during conference brought some of the messages to us stronger to stand up for righteousness even when we seem to be on our own. I am so glad I choose to accompany Ruth into Young Women Conference I am sure I learned more that she did and feel lifted and ready to knuckle down to living the gospel the way my Saviour would have me.
