The Young Women General Presidency is hosting a “Face to Face” event Sunday, Nov. 15, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the young women’s organization.
The event begins at 4 p.m. and is available to watch on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint’s website, the Church YouTube channel and on BYUtv. The Young Women General Presidency will be hosting the event, with various musical numbers and videos explaining the history of the young women’s organization.
Throughout the year, the presidency has released three videos inviting young women to participate in challenges to prepare for the upcoming broadcast. The first challenge invited young women to do 150 of something. There were several examples shared in the video, including saying 150 kind messages, reading 150 pages of scripture, making 150 treats for your neighbors, or finding 150 names to take to the temple as a class. The young women were invited to share what they did with #strivetobe.
The second challenge for the young women was to reach out to their young women leaders. In the video, several young women are seen calling their young women leaders to thank them for all they have done to help them.
“I call that a ‘gospel payday’ when you get a phone call from someone that you loved so much and you haven’t seen for so long,” said a young women leader in the video.
The third challenge was to share how you hear Heavenly Father.
In an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio, Young Women General President Bonnie Cordon, and her two counselors, Michelle Craig and Becky Craven, shared why these challenges were important to prepare young women for the “Face to Face” event.
“We noticed that with this invitation, they have strengthened each other, the world over. So, it’s been an exciting year as we’ve celebrated and remembered, starting in May… and we’ll go ahead and have the culminating sesquicentennial celebration on Sunday, the 15th,” Sister Cordon said.
In the interview, Sister Craig and Sister Craven shared how young women can support each other and why the young women’s program is important.
The “Face to Face” event is Sunday, Nov. 15 at 4 p.m. MST. It is available to watch at churchofjesuschrist.org, the Church’s YouTube channel and BYUtv.
