Remnants of Womens Conference

Rather than post a project made of fabric remnants, I want to remember some snippets of the inspiring BYU 2011 Women’s Conference. Bear with me; I’m not reading these from a text; it’s just remnants that are in my poor limited recollection. The theme was “By small and simple things are great things brought to pass” (Alma 37:6-7).

Julie B Beck: Am I aligned with the responsibilities the Lord has given me? Christlike charity is the Atonement working in us, covenant keeping at its purest, without charity there is no eternal
life. Relief Society is the manifestation of charity. It’s more than benevolence or niceness, it’s the Lord’s example of what we are to become.

Jennifer Christensen & Laural Jeppson, “Out of small things proceedeth that which is Great” (D & C 64:33) Serving in Our Communities: How to start? Pray for guidance, Word of Mouth projects, local newspapers present many opportunities to serve, web
sites, schools and sports groups

Amy Harris, Generations Linked in Love: Elijah turns hearts to fathers AND mothers! How can we go about finding the stories of our female relatives? All family members matter, not just our direct line. Preserve the history of real women.

Marcela Cisternas, Shopping Temptations: Managing our needs and wants: Spiritual way of dealing with our temporal resources; unity of purpose and commitment; Devourer rebuked and help given when we need it most if we put God first in our lives. Never disconnect ourselves from God, our faith builds a bridge of support. Money, you can’t take it with you; Job said “naked came I into this world and naked will I return.” Adam and Eve walked together hand in hand to their new life; do we walk hand in hand together when we have to sacrifice our wants for our needs, when the safety of our children is more important than the world?

Elder David A. Bednar, closing remarks: Pattern in all things: used in sewing, woodworking, many projects to avoid waste. We see vital spiritual patterns in the Savior’s life, aids to discernment that help us to avoid deception. Contrast small and simple applications of gospel principles one on one, line upon line, with the contemporary ideal of big results in a hurry. Blessed to press on in our righteous pursuits.

    Thank you for reminding me of all these excellent bits of wisdom. I had a good week after an absolutely discouraging Sunday in Primary. The Stake Aux meeting had a section for Primary Music leaders and though I didn’t learn anything new, just reviewing good stuff and communicating with my counterparts, I felt renewed. From no fault of my own, the Primary children were little angels yesterday and I felt like they even enjoyed learning our new song for the Program. Ahhhhh, life’s little gifts.
