Pittsburgh: Part 2 Infinite Hope

Infinite Hope

That is the theme of this year's Time Out for Women conference.
Time Out for Women is a conference put on by Deseret Book, they have music and talks by famous LDS people. It's a Friday night and most of the day on Saturday. It's just the right amount of time to take a break and de-stress while getting uplifted and resolve to do better and to be better at the same time.

My sister and I met up with our mom, our grandma, and our aunt & her daughter.
It was a fun little getaway--not much of a vacation really with all the traveling and busy schedule, but still good to see family and take a break away from home in order for a spiritual and emotional uplift.

Like I said, the theme of this years TOFW conference was INFINITE HOPE.


Ardeth Kapp--
*Hope is much more than wishful thinking--it has power; it's strength to endure
*We all have Infinite Worth--we all have the qualities of our Savior, they may be dormant at the moment, but we all have the potential to become like him in every way.
*Call Home-Prayer is like a phone call home. When we pray, we are talking to our Father in Heaven. We need to stay in touch and call home often.
*Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path.
*Our trials are not to discourage but to refine us
*Our trials are not to weaken but to strengthen us
*It's in the struggle that we come to know Him & depend on Him.

Hymn 19:
When dark clouds of trouble hang o'er us
And threaten our peace to destroy,
There is hope smiling brightly before us
And we know that deliverance is nigh.
John Bytheway:
*Ask yourself--What's it like to be married to me?

The Weaver by Al Bryant:

My Life is but a weaving
between my Lord and me;
I cannot choose the colors
He worketh steadily.

Oft times He weaveth sorrow
And I, in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the upper,
And I the under side.

Not til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the Weaver's skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.

He knows, He loves, He cares,
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives His very best to those
Who leave the choice with Him.

You Know Better Than I (song) Dallyn Vail Bayles
I thought I did what's right
I thought I had the answers
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here
So I put up a fight
And told you how to help me
Now just when I have given up
The truth is coming clear

Chorus 1:
You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing
I don't know is part of getting through
I tried to do what's best
But faith has made it easy
To see the best thing i can do
Is to put my trust in You.

Chorus 2
For, You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I

I saw one cloud and thought it was a sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was You who taught that bird to fly
If i let You reach me
Will You teach me.
(Repeat Chorus )

For, You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
I'll take what answers you supply
You know better than I

Those were my notes from Friday Night's session, I'll have more from Saturday tomorrow.
I had a serious migraine from traveling all day, so it's a wonder I even got out of it what I did that night. Dallyn Vail Bayles is an amazing singer--reminded me very much of Josh Groban.
