During the third hour we had our traditional (we've done it once--it's a tradition!) Visiting Teaching Conference. We had most of the women in the ward in one room (a rarity) and it was a really nice meeting. I spoke, the Visiting Teaching Coordinator spoke and then three women shared their thoughts about Visiting Teaching. We had cookies, fruit cups, and cute little water bottles with a thought taped on them: "If monthly visits aren't possible, please don't do nothing. Be creative and find a way to connect with each sister." --Sister Parkin
It was a really wonderful day and I am happy that I could share it with all my [Relief Society] sisters.

I finished this book on my lunch break today. I loved it. Loved it. I hope Kelly Corrigan keeps writing and publishing! It was such a treat to hear her speak on Saturday. She's really funny and smart and inspiring. She said at the end of her talk that we need to keep reading real books (not on a hand-held device). I agree with her. I'm trying to read more books this year than I've ever read. So far I've finished 5 and I've got plenty more waiting in the wings (and pinned).
