Youth Conference by Steve L.

I had an opportunity to go to my stake's youth conference this weekend. The first day of workshops and presentations were truly inspirational. The following day was filled with service opportunities, and I grabbed a shovel and helped tidy up our city's memorial park. It was great fun with at least a hundred other youth all wearing the same yellow "Mormon helping hands" shirts working along side me, and by the time lunch rolled around, we had dug around and prettied up over fifty trees. After an afternoon of fun in the sun and the church buildings sprinkler systems, we had a nice dinner and a fireside to close the events. President Chapel's talk on building strong family relationships was eye opening to say the least. Can't wait till next year's conference!!
