A Great Way To Close Out The Year

We've been saying that Time Out For Women is a great event, but the show in Salt Lake City sure was something special. The people in attendance got a chance to hear Jenny Oaks Baker play the violin and she was amazing. I've been lucky enough to see her perform a few times this year and each time I find myself completely amazed with her skill and control. Not to mention, she's an absolute sweetheart and gave a very touching talk.

Not to be outdone, Sheri Dew gave a talk that I felt was the highlight of the entire 2009 TOFW Tour. I could absolutely feel the Spirit as she talked about different topics and spoke directly to the women in the crowd. I found myself thinking and wishing more people could have heard her talk and been in attendance.

Sheri Dew IS as amazing as you may have heard!

On Saturday, we gave away three (3) more books at the final show. At each show, it just feels so great to meet new and potential users and share with them the goals and promise of what LDSJournal is and will be. We hope these individuals take full advantage of the printed-book giveaway. And most of all, we hope to be a part of the Time Out For Women Tour in 2010 and also that those of you reading this blog will find a way to come to the show and visit with us.

LDSJournal in St. George for TOFW

We can't say enough about how great it is to take part in the Time Out For Women events. I think Jan said it best when she leaned over to me and commented, "It doesn't matter how many times I see or hear these speakers. I still get so much from them." What a great opportunity for the attendees who arrived in St. George on November 6 & 7.

For the first time in 2009, we brought our main booth display with 40 inch monitor and lighted booth display. We looked awesome at the show and it was nice to be able to show people just how great the LDSJournal service really is. We'll be bringing this beast with us next week in Salt Lake City.

Also, we had three (3) more winners of our Full Color Journal giveaway. Each show, we have a drawing that allows three lucky people to get their personal journal printed to a hard-bound book at no charge to them. All books can be printed up to 800 pages in length and it is such a great keepsake or gift during the holidays. Some of these members don't have an account with yet and we hope this gets them journaling! Congratulations!

Great Dimples Kelsey

Oh, and last, but certainly not least! My super-awesome ballroom dance instructor was in attendance at Time Out For Women and she stopped by so I could get a picture with her. I highly recommend taking ballroom dance lessons or at least dragging your spouse or significant other on the dance floor. It's a fun way to exercise and cut loose. :)

Thanks Jen!!!
