TOFW

I spent the most amazing day yesterday at
I wish I could go again next week...I just cannot wait for the next one.

 Time Out for Women is an inspirational event for women. Attendees are treated to messages of inspiration from respected authors and music artists. TOFW offers a day of learning, laughing, and lifting of spirits. It's a great opportunity for women everywhere to gather and get recharged through motivational messages and music.

It's the TIME OUT FOR WOMEN 2011 TOUR.... CHOOSE TO BECOME just a little closer to the woman you were meant to be - through your testimony, through your relationships, and through your personal improvement.

We had some outstanding Presenters.


My mind is buzzing..so much info to take in and things to contemplate over... My job for this week is to sit and read through my notes and write a few lists... and I have a few Quotes to put up on my mirror, in my kitchen cupboard and on the fridge! 

I thought I would share them with you for some food for thought...

To Become what we want to be, We need to be what we want to become.

Your thoughts make you who you are. If you think negative thoughts..you will be a negative person. If you think positive thoughts you will be a positive person. How many Positive/Negative thoughts are you thinking each day...Hilary Weeks shares more on her blog HERE

Be kind, Everyone you meet is facing something difficult. Sister Hinkley

Enlarge your perspective..

Don't you dare be the one thing standing in your way.

Beware the temptation to retreat from a good thing.

Don't give up...Finish the race.

Prioritize and cut out the distractions.

God is more interested in the offerer than the offering.

Be more interested in the long after than the brief present.

'Sometimes we act as though we are going to stay here, we aren't, we can't and we wont'. Elder Holland

For me, I felt uplifted and inspired. It made me remember to cherish the important things. Remember why we are here and where we are going. To not get caught up in the little things. To focus on an Eternal perspective. To sit, cuddle, love and teach my children.. as they wont be children for long. Instead of wondering when the storm is going to pass... I need to 'dance' in the rain.  

We were also able to give service.....As a part of the CHOOSE TO BECOME TOUR we were able to be involved in donating items and assembling POSSIBILITY PACKS. These are similar to a "hygiene" kit, but will include items specialized to give women the opportunity they need to get back on their feet and BECOME their BEST selves. We were able to donate over 400 packs to NSW Womens Refuge.
Time out for Women also have a website , facebook  and you can sign up for their newsletter HERE...
It was such a wonderful event. It gave me the strength I needed and Inspired me to become better.

  6. I totally loved Saturday. To often we go to these things looking for a spiritual feast but come away with a huge list of things to do, it can be really overwhelming. This wasn't I came away with the message that I was loved, that while I was still trying I was doing well and God loves all his children :) So glad I went!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I really wanted to be there as well, but as things would have it I was away for the weekend and missed out. It sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing the quotes. My BFF got to go (she has taken many notes) and she insists that we are going to the US for the next one. I think I will have to start saving my coins. I am hoping they come out with a DVD for those of us that couldn’t go.
