BYU Women’s Conference is This Week! #byuwc

Apr 29, 2013 by

BYU Women’s Conference is an annual event, co-sponsored by the Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Brigham Young University. It’s an event our LDS readers like to hear about, so this week we’ll be publishing several posts.

Most people know that every year the Relief Society holds a worldwide broadcast for the women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And Mormon women gather in local conferences in different parts of the world for ward and stake Relief Society meetings. But as the Women’s Conference website states:

BYU Women’s Conference is the largest two-day gathering of LDS women anywhere in the world. Over 200 presenters share their perspectives and insights on a variety of topics including womanhood and sisterhood, gospel principles, marriage, family, and practical and timely topics of interest and concern to women of all ages.

Every year, there is also a large-scale evening of service as part of the conference.

Service to others is part of the legacy of Relief Society and BYU Women’s Conference celebrates that legacy. More than 90 local agencies were contacted to select service project opportunities that could best utilize the time and work of Women’s Conference participants. The list of service projects can be found here.

We’ll be sharing some thoughts from the Conference and linking to blog posts of women who are attending.
