For Julie Cropper of southern Utah, being at Women's Conference is a "treat" she looks forward to each year. "Just being here is an answer to prayer," she said. "I just love it." Cropper loves it so much, she treated her daughter, Sarah Ballard, to a special mother-daughter weekend for her birthday.
They enjoyed two days of workshops, service and sisterhood, culminating in the address of Elder Neil L. Anderson of the Quorum of the Twelve. "You can feel how deeply he loves the Lord and he conveyed that so reverently to us. It was very touching," she said.
