Last night I listened to the General Women’s Meeting in the company of my sisters from the Mt. Vernon, Virginia Stake. I enjoyed the added international presence, the messages from our leaders, and the inspiring music.
As the camera captured the large stand in the Conference Center I noticed the many, many empty seats. These seats will be full to capacity next weekend during General Conference with quorums of our leadership, but last night the General Boards of our female auxiliaries filled only a couple of rows.
I had a vision – as I looked at those empty seats. A vision of hope. One day – I see quorums of women filling those seats! A happy thought.
Do you have this same vision of hope? Do you see women in leadership filling those seats?
