Zone Conference at Utah's State Capitol

This week, we enjoyed our wonderful Zone Conference at the State Capitol, right down the road from Temple Square! We loved our stay there and thoroughly enjoyed touring the State Capitol! 

The first group of Sisters at the Capitol. What a great picture!

Fun adventures on Temple Square!

Some of the Sisters on Temple Square were able to enjoy a tour hosted by President Harman this week! The Gillette's also hosted a wonderful event in their home featuring Wanda Palmer, the famous song-writer that wrote "Oh, That I Were an Angel," "Mary's Lullaby," and many other beautiful pieces of music. Wanda Palmer's son and daughter-in-law, Elder and Sister Palmer, happen to be one of our full-time missionary couples here on Temple Square! It was a treat to hear such wonderful music, and hear the stories behind the inspiring tunes! Here are some of these memories captured on film.
