Women's Conference 2011: By small and simple things are great things brought to pass

More than 15,000 women from around the world gathered to the Brigham Young University campus April 28-29, to be instructed and give service at the annual Women’s Conference.

The annual conference is co-sponsored by BYU and the Relief Society organization and offered around 100 classes for women — six of which were in Spanish — and offered a wide variety of topics.

This year’s conference theme, “By small and simple things are great things brought to pass,” comes from the scripture found in the Book of Mormon in Alma 37:6-7.

The conference began Thursday morning with a welcome from Elder Cecil O. Samuelson, BYU President and member of the Seventy, and Julie B. Beck, Relief Society general president. An organized evening of service took place Thursday night, and other smaller humanitarian projects have been handed out to complete during the conference. Speakers for Friday’s general sessions included Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve and Sister Beck.
