My Aunt Tammy introduced me to something
new, something fantastic, and something life
changing. We attending Time Out For Women
in Phoenix this past weekend. Tammy has attended
three now and I completely understand why!
I want to share a few of my favorite quotes
from the 2 day conference with you.
The theme for this one was
Leone in Africa. When she was a young girl,
she witnessed her parents being shot and killed,
her brother being taken by the rebels (she later
found out his arms were cut off and he was left to
die since he wouldn't join them as a rebel), and she
had to stand and watch as the rebels cut off her
sisters legs and left to bleed to death (all within 24
hours). 'WHY ME?' She had many questions.
Through many experiences after that, she
met some LDS people and joined the church.
She left her homeland of Africa to serve a mission
at Salt Lake City Temple Square and said,
"I had no shoes on my feet,
but faith in my heart."
She said she never stops carrying
her scriptures, since they are her therapist
that get her through her darkest hours.
Her story is incredible and Deseret Book
now sells a documentary based on her journey.
Saturday session. They were absolutely adorable!
'We All Need Saving' was my favorite song
they performed. Click here and it's song #4.
'I Belong' (#6) was another favorite!
I heard him speak as a youth and I was so
touched that I wrote him a fan letter. To my
amazement, I received a FULL ON LETTER
back from him. That meant so much to me
as a teenager. I was able to take my daughters
to hear him last year and they fell in love with
his adorable personality, too. Notice my eyes
and hair in this picture. Think I cried a little?
He took a very serious route this time. He
told us to think of Christ as saying not just
come unto me, but COME AS YOU ARE!
Make an effort to live life striving for
excellence, but it's OK if we aren't perfect.
Perfection is impossible.
I'm so glad my Aunt invited me. I will
remember it forever. Can't wait until next year!
