by | Jan. 19, 2021

If you’ve ever wondered what BYU Women’s Conference is about but haven’t been able to attend in person, this spring may be the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet.

Held online only, the conference, now in its 45th year, will be centered around the theme “I am a child of God. His promises are sure.” This theme emphasizes that all women are daughters of Heavenly Parents and that God desires to bless them.

The 2021 conference will include both complimentary and paid viewing options, BYU News reported. Complimentary options include messages from Elder Ronald A. Rasband and his wife, Sister Melanie Rasband, the Sister to Sister event, and sessions with five presidency members from the Church’s organizations. These sessions will be available in English, with closed captioning and translation available in Spanish and Portuguese.

Topics for the sessions will also include the following:

  •  Fostering understanding and unity in a divisive world
  •  Preparing children to live in a world of wondrous diversity
  •  Understanding differences between shame and guilt
  •  Seeing yourself in the Abrahamic covenant
  •  Encouraging women to speak out and speak up
  •  Fostering relationships with loved ones during faith transitions

Registration for viewing all sessions is currently available for a cost of $59. The sessions will only be available to view online from April 29 through September 30. Additionally, individuals may submit original music compositions focused on this year’s theme to the BYU Women’s Conference committee through March 1, 2021.
