On September 30th, about 60 women (and a few men!) gathered to hear a roundtable discussion between four exceptional women: Bonni Ballif-Spanvill, Debra Goodson, Ariel Bybee and Karen Larsen. All over 50, each of these women has moved through various eras in her life and represent a broad range of roles a woman can play in a single lifetime. Their conversation was funny, insightful, tragic, enlightening and altogether delightful.

Below you will find the evening’s discussion broken into seven different clips. The first four clips are the women introducing themselves individually, followed by two clips of the actual group discussion, concluded by an update on the Mormon Women Project by founder Neylan McBaine.

Part 1 – Ariel Bybee Introduction

Part 2 – Karen Larsen Introduction

Part 3 – Debra Goodson Introduction

Part 4 – Bonni Ballif-Spanvill Introduction

Part 5 – Roundtable Discussion 1

Part 6 – Roundtable Discussion 2

Part 7 – MWP Today

    What an event! I am so glad I was there. The four women’s stories really lifted me.

    Parts 6 and 7 aren’t working for me. I loved the first 5 parts, though!

    Truly inspiring! I wish I could have attended this wonderful event. The stories and Testimonies touched me in ways I could not have imagined. I was able to connect to these wonderful women, share in their pain, sorrow and joys. I was uplifted to know that we Sisters still share a bonding through the Gospel, and no matter what our walk in life, we all have our trials and joys which can touch and inspire each and every one of us to be comforted and reassured through Christ. Thank you!

    I cried listening to the women speak in these videos. This is what I have been searching for. I needed to hear, feel and see women such as these. As one of the sisters said, we need to throw away the script and start listening to what individual path the Lord might have for us women. I wish so badly that the Church, as an organization, recognized the immense hole that seems to exist when it comes to it’s women, both in our history and in the present. Perhaps if we keep having these conversations and continue to record our stories, then things will get better in the Church. Thank you so much. I will be visiting your site often.
