Stake Womens Conference Recap

For those that weren't able to attend, I just wanted to share the messages that were given. It was very good and well planned as always.

Sister Leslie Welker spoke to all the sisters first. She is from St. Johns and works in the temple so some of you may know her. Her husband passed away a few years ago in a car accident. She said that she didn't know how she was going to get through life without him. As you can imagine she was very depressed and down. Her friend invited her to women's conference at BYU and even though she didn't want to go she decided to. She went to a class where the speaker started out by asking "Can a pessimist turn into an optimist?" Then he went on to say that how we feel is a choice. She decided that it was her choice how she felt everyday so she came up with 5 questions to ask herself every morning when she wakes up to help her feel better about herself and the day.

1. What do I love about myself? Think of the first thing that comes to mind. She says if we ask we will find an answer so take the time to ask yourself.

2. What do I have to look forward to today? The point is to be excited about something, even if it is insignificant. If there isn't something to look forward to, then what is the point.

3. What does Heavenly Father want me to learn today? You don't necessarily have to answer this right then, but say the question so you will be thinking about it throughout the day.

4. Who can I serve today? We have all heard how service will make you feel better, so let's do it!

5. What am I grateful for? Think about the good that is happening in your life even if there is a whole lot of bad. She suggested starting a journal to just write what you are thankful for in it.

Then she concludes by telling us each to make sure we LAUGH OUT LOUD each day. Even if it is at ourselves.

We then broke into groups and went to 3 different classes.
Sister Sloan spoke about the importance of the temple. She gave us a picture of the Snowflake temple with a quote by Elder Vaughn J. Featherstone, "I promise you that all who faithfully attend to temple work will be blessed. Your families will draw closer to the Lord, unseen angels will watch over your loved ones when satanic forces tempt them, the veil will be thin and great spiritual experiences will distill upon this people."

Sister Laney taught about the importance of self reliance. She spoke of 7 parts of self-reliance that we need to work on: Resource Management; Social, Emotional, and Spiritual Strength; Service; Home Storage; Employment; Health; and Education. We need to fill up our "Ark of Self-Reliance" so we will be in a position to help ourselves and those around if they are ever in need of help.

Sister Gillespie spoke on the importance of visiting teaching. She went over the basics of visiting teaching and the types of contacts that count. Then she reiterated that the point of visiting teaching is not to just "get it done" each month, but to administer provide comfort to the sisters. Make sure to share the message in some way even if you are doing a phone call visit.
