Womens Conference - A Special Request from the Stake

A Special Request from the Stake Relief Society:

Growing up in the church conferences have always been an enjoyable part of my life. I remember looking forward with great anticipation for youth conferences and EFYs in my youth. I enjoyed being among friends and having fun, but it didn't take long to discovered that conferences provided me a bit of extra spiritual juice that helped me feel recharged and capable of facing difficult things ahead. The days of my youth may be long gone, but the need to step back from the world to be among friends and get that spiritual recharge is needed more than ever. Luckily conferences are not just for the youth. If you have ever attended a Time out for Women, BYU Women's Conference, or Education Week I imagine that you too walked away rejuvenated by the words spoken, the spirit you felt, and the bond of sisterhood that surrounded you. And I bet you couldn't wait for the next one. Whether you have experienced conferences before or longed to have the opportunity, we have some great news- it's time to take a break, to put some time aside for yourself, and to come join your friends in the Chandler Stake for Women's Conference! The best part is, you don't have to travel, you don't have to spend any money to attend, and we're going to feed you snacks and a fabulous lunch! But here is where we need your help. We've lined up some great speakers and rounded up the best food, but we need to get a general idea of who will be attending and how you will most likely spend your time that day.

Here is the general information:

Women's Conference Theme: Running Your Marathon

“Run with patience the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1

Date: Saturday May 7, 2011

Time: 9am-4pm (you do not have to attend the entire time)

Location: Chandler Stake Center

Here is what you can do to help us:

Please click on the link below and fill out a quick survey to let us know whether or not you may be attending and what classes and activities you are most interested in. Because we are asking teachers to spend time in preparation and in their presentation at this event, and because we are using tithes to cover all expenses your answers will greatly assist us in helping to plan appropriately. Please note that this is not a commitment, and even if you don't fill out the survey we hope you will still find your way to the stake center on Saturday May 7th.

The last thing you can do for us is spread the word. Call your girl friends, the ladies you visit and teach, a neighbor, anyone that would like to offer a hand of service or needs to hear one of the special messages- and invite them to come with you. It's going to be a great day and we can't wait to see you there.
