Sister's Conference

Aimee Cardon was not able to come to my Sister's Conference but had volunteered to do the next one! Aimee did such a great job and worked really hard to pull everything together!! She is seriously amazing! We had about 20 women attend this one, it really was so fun! It was themed around President Hinckley's B's...Be humble, Be true, Be Positive..etc.
She made cute folders for everyone and had some talks that she recommended reading and her favorite quotes. She gave really great advice on being healthy.
Eat Whole Foods
Drink Lots of Water
Sweat Everyday
Wheat Over White
Eat Veggies and Fruits With Every Meal
Grind Your Own Grains
She and her husband have a great passion for living healthy lives.
I forgot to put the flash on...oops.
Aimee also shared an amazing resource for Family Home Evenings it is so helpful, check it out!
We were just waiting for a few more to come.
Mary showed us how to use freezer paper to create a design with fabric paint for a shirt. I think it turned out so cute!! She really did a great job!

Sally is one of the most AMAZING seamstresses...She showed us how to make a maxi skirt in 5 minutes. It turned out so cute. She had lots of great tips for working with jersey knit too.
Aimee set up a google doc for everyone to sign up and each of us got to choose which "B" we wanted to give a little 2-3 minute talk with. We had so many wonderful stories shared. Jessica chose Be Involved. She gave great examples of places that can be involved in 1-calling 2-visiting teaching 3-attend activities 4-invite others to your home Aimee talked about Be True-she said we need to be true to our divine qualities. You are the only you in this world. Lindsay gave talk on Be Smart. She pointed out that we are all still so young and have plenty of time to keep learning. Kelli talked about Be Full of Laughter. She shared an experience about struggling to be happy after a personal tragedy in her family. She bore her testimony that she knew that laughter is a gift in our lives. Be Grateful-Elisa shared an experience with us where she prayed starting with the first year of her life and each year after that, thanking Heavenly Father for someone or something from that year. Sometimes we need to really think about how blessed we are! Be Clean- Emily talked about how much better everyone feels when the house is clean. She also talked about being clean spiritually too. Be Humble-Marla said that pride makes you lose the ability to see through the obscure. Be Positive-Robin learned that when life is good you shouldn't be concerned about what trial is around the corner but that you should enjoy your life. Men are that they might have joy! Be still-Have you ever had the experience where you create almost an anxiety attack about a situation? Olga testified that when those situations come, to be still, know that God is watching over you. Take things a little at a time and everything will be okay. I chose Be Prayerful. I made two quotes and shared a story about prayer.

He [the Lord] will always hear your prayers and will invariably answer them. However, His answers will seldom come while you are on your knees praying, even when you may plead for an immediate response. Rather, He will prompt you in quiet moments when the Spirit can most effectively touch your mind and heart. Hence, you should find periods of quiet time to recognize when you are being instructed and strengthened. Ensign, May 2007, Richard G Scott

What a great way to start the day! Thank you all for sharing a part of yourself! I hope there are many more Sister's Conferences to come!!
