Youth Conference and Young Womens Conference

I have spent the past 2 weekends at Youth Conference and Young Womens Conference respectively. The theme for both came for the mutual 2010 theme Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

Youth Conference:
We worked with the Virginia Special Olympics and put on a non-competitive day of events focused on them. I was soo touched by their sweet spirits and how simply happy they were. I learned a lot about gratitude and I honestly felt so bad about being a brat to those around me when I am totally blessed. When I looked at how happy they were even when they couldn't talk, see, walk, or couldn't comprehend everything I took time to seriously reflect upon how lucky and blessed I am.

Young Women's Conference:
I was originally devastated when I found at that Girls Camp was not going to be the same format as it has always been. But honestly the workshops and activities were so uplifting and strengthening. And I LOVED my YCL's there was a such a special bond between us all this year.
