Several hundred women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Chattanooga, will gather for the fourth annual Chattanooga Women's Conference. This year 's conference will be held on Saturday, March 11, at 3067 Ooltewah-Ringgold Road from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Women of all denominations, age 18 and older, are invited to attend.
Drocella Mugorewara, executive director of Bridge Refugee Services, will be the featured guest speaker. Seven years ago, Mrs. Mugorewara fled Rwanda as a refugee without a penny, friend, or family which to rely. She came to America, reunited with her family of seven, and now resides in Knoxville, where she devoted her life to serving refugees throughout our communities.
Guided by a scripture found in Moroni 7:47 which states - "Charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him" - women of 12 LOS congregations in the Chattanooga area will donate and pack basic kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and personal supply items for Bridge Refugee Services.
Other sessions include discussions about family history research, how to be holy women, rejoicing with those who rejoice, mourning with those that mourn, how to stand for truth and righteousness with civility and respect, personal development, marriage and family relations, food storage, and how to live providently.
Dr. JulieAnn Krogel, a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Oak Ridge, Tn., will also speak about making love last. UTC Professor Mark Mendenhall will share his thoughts about how we can have charity without condoning wrongdoing.
