Keynote Session - Saturday 1:00pm 

Kerry Morgan is our keynote speaker for 2019.   His presentation is entitled "Personal Revelation - An Essential Nutrient for the Exciting Journey Ahead"

We live in exciting times with change in the world accelerating.  God has provided a compass, a Liahona of sorts, to guide, direct, comfort and help answer all of life’s questions or concerns.  President Boyd K. Packer taught, “If all you know is what you see with your natural eyes and hear with your natural ears, you won’t know very much.”  Life’s single most important skill is the ability to, “…qualify for, receive and act upon personal revelation …”  (April 2010, Julie Beck - General Relief Society President), an essential nutrient that can bring peace, protection and understanding, regardless of circumstance.  Buckle up as we walk into the exciting journey ahead!

Kerry played on the 1974 US soccer team at the high school world cup tournament in Vienna, Austria, and later played soccer for BYU.  Holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from BYU and an MBA from University of Southern California.  Married 38 years, four children and 10 grandchildren.  Former financial executive of a Fortune 500 transportation company.  Served as the Director of the Portland Temple Visitors’ Center, Area Seventy executive secretary, high counselor, bishop and missionary in the Japan Sendai Mission.  Currently serves as the Ward Mission Leader, Dairy Creek Ward in the Forest Grove Stake.

Workshops


By Divine Design - Inspirations of a Sculptress - Jacki Hunlow
The challenge and journey of creating a sculpture, and the miracles that happen around it, are similar to what we all face in life.    When the Lord gives you an idea, he gives you the gift to accomplish it.  Driven by spirit and revelation, we do the work, and He sends the blessings.

We are living in a time of shifting paradigms and worldly chaos. This message is for all of us who fear we can never know enough or do enough.   We learn to choose the good part and the one thing that is needful – the Savior, the Redeemer even Jesus Christ.

As an international and national award-winning sculptor and portrait painter, Jacki Hunlow has been working by way of her artwork to honor and illustrate the dignity of womanhood and mothers as she portrays women’s contributions to their cultures and societies.  Her sculpture, Angel Mother, is part of the 2019 International Art competition display at the Church Museum in Salt Lake City. She is the founder of the Mother’s Legacy Project a nonprofit organization that presents panels at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women each year in effort to bring awareness of issues and needs for mothers everywhere. In 2011 she was the Oregon Mother of the Year.  She and her husband, Steven Hunlow, live in Portland, Oregon.  Together have nine children, seventeen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Have You Visited Home Lately? - Neils Knowlton
Learn how temple worship bridges your "Once upon a time" to your "Happily every after".    Learn about your superpowers, and how you can be protected, healed, and filled with pure and total joy.  

Happily married for 30 years, with 8 children, and 3 grandchildren.  General Manager at Costco Wholesale.  Niels is a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and he served a full time mission to Sweden.    He married in the Salt Lake Temple.   


Niels has served most recently as a Temple Preparation Teacher, Bishop and Stake High Councilor.






Nutrition: How Simple Daily Choices Can Lead to Happiness and Health - Sarah Larimer

President Nelson said to “eat your vitamin pills” in preparation for the exciting times ahead so where should we begin?  It seems that every day, another voice has joined the mix of wildly varying opinions trying to dictate what we eat. Relearn to honor and respect the incredible body God has given you as we get back to the basics of eating healthy, mindful nutrition and healing from the inside out. 


o   Sarah is a food fanatic and a registered dietitian with a master’s degree in clinical nutrition from OHSU. She currently teaches nutrition to undergraduate and graduate students for BYUI and OHSU and specializes in gastrointestinal disorders.  When she’s not testing new recipes in the kitchen, she’s exploring the farmers market in search of new foods to try.
