Sheri Dew & Sister Nelson

I went to a Women's Conference in Moab last weekend with a group of amazing women.  What a wonderful opportunity to hear from these two powerful women who are simply, ordinary women...with extraordinary testimonies of the gospel.  Some of my favorite quotes from the conference were:
"Who's agenda is this supporting?"  (Sis. Nelson-In reference to what media should be in our home)
"How deep are our roots?" (Sis. Dew-Referencing a story about some of her beautiful plants being uprooted by a 6 year old:)
"What does the part of you that noone else can see look like?"  (Sis. Dew)
"This life is not about "This" life" (Sis. Dew)
So many ideas and stories were shared, but the over all message I came away with is this.  We need to be stronger than we are, our thoughts need to be centered on our Savior, and our role in strengthening the home and family has never been more important nor has it ever been more attacked than now. We need to be courageous in standing for what we know to be right...and ladies...we KNOW.
