Last night my mother-in-law and I headed up to Salt Lake. I think all of downtown was filled with women in skirts. We were all going to the General Relief Society Broadcast at the Conference Center.
I always forget how HUGE that place is. Whenever I see it on TV, I think, "Hmmm, there sure are a lot of people there." But when you're actually there, sheesh! It's even bigger than it looks on TV. It really is amazing to be there.
Sometimes when I'm at the Conference Center (usually because I'm sitting in the Balcony), I will find myself just watching the speakers on the huge screens. And I forget that they are actually speaking right in front of me. And then I have to remind myself that I'm actually in the same room as the prophet!
My ultimate favorite part about being at the Conference Center every time is the music. Singing with 21,000 other people is really neat. Last night the music sounded especially wonderful. And besides the music, the talks were also wonderful. I heard so many messages that I so needed to hear last night.
My last few wards have had quite the age range in Relief Society. I think that is one of the best parts about the Relief Society. Where else can I go, for an hour each week, to learn from experienced women and mothers? And let's be honest, I can use all of the advice I can get! I'm thankful to be a part of such a neat society.
