Be Ye Kind Youth Conference

I've been asked by the conference organizers to post the following announcement, as well as a request for registrations. If you're going to attend, please register right away. The organizers need an accurate headcount to complete their preparations.


Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice; and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even for Christ's sake God hath forgiven you. (Ephesians 1:12 RE)

Dear Restoration Youth,

As the hearts of those in this world continue to grow colder, as we were told would happen in the Last Days, it is more important than ever to be kind to ourselves, and to others. Christ’s example is one of forgiveness, charity, love and encouragement. We are all seeking to be more like our Savior, but at times, being kind can be difficult. In a world where we interact with our family, friends and peers every day, it’s easy to forget how to be kind when we feel justified in our anger.

Luckily, there are skills we can each learn that will help us be kind, even when it’s hard. At the Be Ye Kind Youth Conference, we’ll focus on developing a culture of Zion, which is one of kindness. You’ll have the opportunity to make new friends and connections with other youth your age and participate in fun activities. Saturday events will include a workshop that will explore the 3 main principles of kindness, fun water activities, and a delicious meal/dessert. Sunday events will be centered around service and sacrament. We’ll end the conference with a potluck dinner and a family dance open to all. We look forward to seeing you, and to a great weekend together!

When: 
  • Saturday, August 3rd: 9:00 AM-7:30 PM 
  • Sunday, August 4th: 10:00 AM-9:00 PM (potluck at 5:00 followed by the dance)

Hey everyone,

It's been brought to my attention that comments from mobile phones might not come through in some situations.

The blogger platform, though free, seems to have problems.
