Women in the Scriptures Event You Won't Want to Miss it!

I am excited to announce that in two weeks I am going to be participating in a Women in the Scriptures panel hosted by the Mormon Women Project (you can read my interview with them here). I am really excited about this and hope that some of you will be able to come. It should be fantastic.

Here are the details: 

Join us for a Mormon Women Project Salon - Provo, UT

Saturday September 15th, 7:00 - 9:00pm 

 Featuring Camille Fronk Olsen, Ann Madsen and Heather Farrell

"Our Relationship With Women in the Scriptures"

C. Jane Kendrick's Home
1170 Birch Lane, Provo, UT 84604


Come enjoy a small group fundraiser for the Mormon Women Project.  Our evening will feature a panel discussion with BYU professors and authors Camille Fronk Olsen and Ann Madsen, as well as Heather Farrell of the blog Women in the Scriptures. You will have time to ask questions about what you hear and also enjoy a  light summer dessert. Come and bring your friends for a great night out! Suggested donation is $20.00 that can be paid in advance here or at the door. Read bios here.

I am really excited about this opportunity. I love any chance I get to share my testimony about the women in the scriptures and women's place in the gospel. Yet, I do have to admit that I am super intimidated about sitting on a panel with Camille Fronk Olsen and Ann Madsen. When I got the final email telling me who I'd be speaking with I started singing "One of these things just ain't like the others"  and my husband laughed and reassured me that even though I am not a scholar of ancient scripture I still have a valuable perspective to contribute. I feel confident about that but it is still intimidating to sit down with some of my heroes... um... heroines.

It should be a wonderful event and I know I am really looking forward to hearing new perspectives. Seating is limited so if you want to reserve your spot you can register here.

Can't wait to see you there!

  1. That's fantastic, Heather. I've spoken next to people that absolutely blew my mind, so I think I know how you feel. What's the fundraiser for?

  2. Wow, what an amazing panel, Heather! I've taken classes from both of them (and spent a little time with you, of course), so I have a connection to all three of you:) I have no doubt you'll do great.

  3. I'm excited to come, and I bought tickets, and then I realized it's the same time as the adult session of the regional stake conference. ?

  7. Yes, yes, how did it go? This was during the adult session of our regional conference, so I missed it. Do tell?
