Wow, I didn't know that about Embry! That's so cool! Random: Someone from church named their daughter Embree. I laughed and thought of Twilight.
So for anyone who went to the YW broadcast last night, when Sister Dalton was giving her talk and they showed the pictures, my stake was in there!! The picture of all of the girls releasing the balloon was an activity my stake did, and I was there so I was in the picture but of course there are so many of us, and whenever there's a camera around I tend to disappear behind things.
But it was so cool because our stake YW president told us she had written to Sister Dalton and that they would use our activity as part of "training" and then we just went in to watch it and when our picture came up we all just gasped excitedly. It was really cool.
And that story that Sister Dibb (I think that's her name...the first speaker) told was about a girl in a stake next to ours. She went to Youth Conference with my stake and like two others and she told that story (the one about the "political issue" that was Prop 8 and how the teacher demeaned her view of it). But it was worse, she was ALONE, there was no one else with her.
