To all my friends I saw and met at Women's Conference this is for you!
What a wonderful weekend.



And as a awesome surprise the second song in my video could be yours.
Heidi Johnson, story originator and producer of "Errand of Angels" sent me a free soundtrack to her movie to give to a lucky watcher of this video.
The song "As Sisters in Zion" is from her movie (info here). It is one of my
favorite songs.
If you would like to have a chance to win this CD of songs from the movie all you have to do is leave a comment.
Simple. Just a hello. Hey funny movie. I want to go to Women's Conference. Why are you only wearing green? I love mint brownies too!

Than on Tuesday morning I will randomly pick a winner and send you the great soundtrack from the movie Errand of Angles which I borrowed as the soundtrack of my Women's Conference movie.

I just found your blog off of any blog. I love it! I live in Utah and have always wanted to go but have. I've heard such good things about it. I'll have to make it a priority next year.

Oh Kristi, this video was so worth the wait! I loved it and want to have a copy on dvd (is that possible) to have forever.

I love that version of Sisters in Zion so much and was totally singing along as I watched the video.

Thank you for putting this together, what a great gift!!!

pick me, pick me, pick me!

I absolutely love this version of "Errand of Angels".

I'd love to have the cd!

Great video! I watched that movie during a session of General Conference in April. I went on Study Abroad to Vienna in '94, and it brought back memories. A lot of the sisters even reminded me of girls on my study abroad! Great flick. I might go next year if my baby cooperates and I can leave him by then.

Shauna said...

Love it! What memories. So glad I got to hug you!
And that luggage....I wanted to buy so many pieces, it was all too cute.
As it was, I had to visit Fed-Ex Kinkos to ship my purchases home.
2010 For sure!

Hi Kristi! It was so fun to meet you at Conference. We met at the end of the last session in the Marriott Center I had been sitting in front of you...I was so glad I went up and met you. I realized where I initially got your link from, from Lauralee (who commented above,) she is my BYU freshman year roommate's sister! Anyways, great to see your video!

All I can say after that is Wow and I really want to try a mint brownie! Looks fantastic. I've never tried either- women's conference or a mint brownie.

Price Cream Parlor said...

This was so fun to watch! I can't believe all the photos taken! After I was watching I thought it was over and it was only on day one! HA HA HA!!!
Such a great memory to put it to a movie with songs! So fantastic to be friends this long and share in this tradition together! Back at the Y.

Speaking of songs - I LOVE that rendition of AS SISTERS IN ZION! WOW! I had never heard that before! So cool! Makes me wish I could sing!

I love Women's Conference! I have only been able to go once (when my Mom was speaking...) but I so enjoyed the experience and was in awe of all those wonderful women that were trying to learn and grow and develop new bonds. It is overwhelming to sit all together and feel the power behind great women!

I have a gift for the three of you - can't wait to mail it out! hee hee!
