Today I attended Women's Conference at BYU. In past years I have been content to just take pictures of my favorite General Relief Society and Young Women leaders. I have listened to these sisters talk and laughed and cried at the messages they have shared. And almost like blogging friends, I have come to feel that I really know them.
And so today when I went to a class about Hope taught by Sister Susan Tanner's husband and daughter, and I noticed her sitting in the front row, well I unabashedly went up and asked if she would take a picture with me. She suggested that perhaps we should not do it right at the very front, but could move over to the side out of the lime light. I suppose she didn't want to start a stampede of others wanting to follow in my ways.
And so here I am with my new BFF Susan W Tanner. She is just the cutest thing ever and I just adore her and her testimony. I told her how much I loved the talk she had given 7 years ago. After I had sufficiently scared her, I let her go back to her seat and watch her husband and daughter give wonderful talks.
After the afternoon session, I went way down to the very bottom of the stairs right next to where all the important people walk out. And after many shots of the back of Sister Beck and Sister Dalton I managed to flag them down and call them over to where I was nonchalantly hanging over the railing.
And then the cherry on top of the Sunday, Me and Sister Beck. How cute is she. What to do with so many new BFFs. We also shared a nice conversation about how much we love Relief Society. I love these woman of faith and have been so blessed by their testimonies.
