I was 12 years old when I went to conference for the first and only time as a child. At that time, general conference was held in the old tabernacle, and my parents and I waited in line for hours, just hoping that we wouldn’t get turned away. When we finally got in, we felt so blessed. And we also felt like sardines. The benches were small and situated so close together that we had to turn our legs to fit in. But I loved that experience and today it is a cherished memory.
That trip taught me that Utah was special. There are some things you can only do in Utah, like going to general conference. When we moved to Utah last summer, we told our girls that we would take them to General Conference. I am so thankful that we got to fulfill that promise! Two weeks ago, I was blessed to go to the general women’s conference at the conference center with my mom and my two oldest girls. It was inspiring! I felt overwhelmed with gratitude to be in the beautiful, spacious, and comfortable conference center with some of the people that I love most in all the world. When the prophet walked in the room, I hoped and prayed that my girls would feel and understand how amazing it was to be in the same room as a living prophet of God. It was a night that I will never forget.
Since that night, I have looked forward to making some printable quotes featuring the speakers from the general women’s conference. I am so happy with how these printables turned out! I hope you can use them in your home, as a lesson handout, or as a gift for the people you visit teach. Each printable comes in size 8×10 and 4×6. Enjoy! ♥
