My friend Emily is Mrs. Utah 2008-09. She has been doing a lot of speaking engagements as part of her Mrs. Utah responsibilities. Last fall she spoke to my ward Relief Society and did a great job, so when my mom needed a speaker for her Enrichment night I suggested she call Em. She did, and tonight my sisters and I went down to Sandy to hear Emily speak on accepting and overcoming trials. It was a wonderful presentation. I admire her speaking abilities; I always get tongue-tied in front of a crowd, but she is in her element when she has an audience. Family, friends, and a great message--what a great way to spend an evening!
