2010 Time to Blossom Young Women's Conference Highlight Video



Debbie Forrest and I came up with the idea to do a Young Women's Conference last June (2009). I have spent everyday since working 40 or 50 hours a week on it. It has been the hugest thing I have ever attempted in my life!!! Lots of work but so rewarding:) Debbie compared it to planning 5 wedding receptions at once. I think that is an understatement!

We had 250 girls and 21 counselors June 14-18 staying at the Mesa Hilton. We had lots of speakers with spiritual and inspiring messages, plus service and fun.

I am working on an hour highlight video right now and viewing all the footage of our event. I really believe we did change lives. The girls left with so much confidence and that was so beautiful to see. They actually blossomed:)

Whew....what a year!

Yippee!
I am so happy for you!
You have literally worked your tail end off! I have heard nothing but great reviews about your conference. I can't wait for Brooke to be old enough! =)

Travis just asked me if you were famous--like in the whole country. I said--not quite yet but will be soon. You amaze me! I'm so lucky to be your friend!

Awesome job!!! It was heart-warming to see so many beautiful young women having a great time. I was glad to read on an earlier post that you plan to continue doing these! I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to send (she will be 8 in December)!
