In 2018, the organizers of TOFW received a letter written on hot pink cardstock. To this day, that letter remains on one of the desks of our directors.

In that letter, one woman expressed her love for the Time Out for Women (TOFW) experience and the uplifting messages provided through the presentations. She explained that a recent change in her life circumstances had made it impossible to continue attending the event. She plead for an at-home adaptation of TOFW.

The team at Deseret Book did not forget this letter. It served as a compelling reminder of all those who, due to location or circumstance, are unable to physically attend TOFW. Though we cannot host an event in every city, we are eager to provide all women with the opportunity of gathering together and submersing themselves in positive messages.

In short, we heard the plea, and we are excited to share a special offering as part of TOFW’s 20th anniversary, Glorious Light tour: The Small Gathering package!

The Small Gathering package was created to give women around the world a chance to enjoy the TOFW 20th anniversary experience. It includes everything needed to create and host an at-home gathering of friends and loved ones, anywhere, anytime. Hosts and their guests can enjoy exclusive access to TOFW content and products—all from the comfort of their own homes.

The Host Bundle comes with digital content access, printable activity guides, a journal, a “Lightkeeper’s Manifesto” (an interactive document that supports the topics addressed by the presenters), and, of course, the iconic tote bag that women have come to love as part of their experience at TOFW. It also comes with a Leaf Classic Necklace as a free gift (a total value of over $75).

Hosts can easily download or stream presenters’ videos and adapt the activities and discussion guides to the interests of their guests. You can even get your group engaged with printable décor quotes and favorite recipes from presenters like Kate Lee and Reyna Aburto!

The Guest Bundle compliments the Host Bundle and includes the “Christ Shall Give Thee Light” tote bag, a “Lightkeeper’s Manifesto,” a journal, and a Leaf Classic Necklace. At just $10, it’s the perfect follow-along keepsake package (over $50 value).

Today, TOFW Small Gathering bundles have shipped all over the world, including Egypt! Women are gathering to enjoy the Glorious Light Tour at their convenience and with their communities, friends, and families!
