Hilary Weeks, Emily Freeman, Others Share Perspectives on Historic General Women's Meeting

14681

In November, the First Presidency announced that a semiannual general women’s meeting would replace the annual general Relief Society meeting and the general Young Women’s meeting. And, for the first time ever, all girls age eight and older were invited to attend. This was a historic meeting full of uplifting messages applicable to sisters of all ages. Time Out for Women asked four of the presenters—Kris Belcher, Emily Freeman, Wendy Ulrich, and Hilary weeks—to share their thoughts and impressions. Each woman brought with her different life experiences, and we want to share their unique perspectives on this meeting with you:

Kris Belcher

Heavenly Father prepared each of us for what we would encounter in this life. We are all at different places in our lives, but we all need the same thing—to feel the love of our Savior. Kris Belcher shares how she gained a testimony of this love at the General Women’s Meeting.
