Youth Conference - The Amazing Grace

From Stomp
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending our Stake's Youth Conference, we spent 2 and a half days exploring downtown Manhattan.  The theme was "The Amazing Grace" taken from John 15, youth were encouraged to find Grace in the City which they live.  Over the course of youth conference, I witnessed the youth give food and water to the homeless, pick up trash, hold doors open, say please and thank you and offer a helping hand, it was amazing to watch each one find grace in their own way.  I even noticed it in myself the last couple of days as I'm a little more willing to help others out.   A big thank you to everyone who helped make youth conference a success, I know my girls had a great time and are still talking about it.

That's so great that you were able to be a part of that and watch the kids explore their city while learning an important lesson. Tiring I'm sure but a great experience and definitely lives up to your summer of "no regrets" motto.

What a fun theme! It would be fun to mix up Youth Conference up here. This year (as is every 4 years) is the Trek.
