I had the chance this last week to attend BYU Women’s Conference. It was amazing and everything that I needed (which was a break, time with some of my best pals and spiritual nourishment). I am still compiling my notes from this Women’s Conference to share in a post in the next couple of days, but I thought that today I would share a few talks that have been highlights for me and others in past Women’s Conferences.
The very first year I attended Women’s Conference was in 1999. That year was magical for me. For me, this talk is what I believe to be the greatest moment ever in Women’s Conference history. Sister Hinkley, who is remembered for her amazing sense of humor, is being interviewed by her daughter Kathleen Walker. If you need a good laugh cue this up to minute 41:00 and sit back and enjoy. I remember sitting in the Marriott Center with tears rolling down my cheeks, dying laughing with thousands of other women. We all fell completely in love with this woman.
Mary Ellen Edmunds is a Women’s Conference regular. She is one of the funniest presenters I have ever heard. She always shares great insights, and I absolutely loved this talk.
John Bytheway. Need I say more.
Sheri Dew is one of my very favorites! This is a great talk from the 2014 Women’s Conference.
In 2008 my mom, Nannette Wiggins, had the chance to present at Women’s Conference. She gave a really great talk on addiction recovery and the Addiction Recovery Program of the LDS church. I know I am biased, but for me this was a great moment at Women’s Conference. Click here to read.
If you didn’t get a chance to attend Women’s Conference this year, or if you have never had the chance to go, this is a really great sampling of the goodness that happens there. Like I said, I will be sharing some of the notes that I took this last week, but until then, I hope this gives you some great things to fill your buckets.
