Here’s a little sneak peak of what you’ll get:

#1: An Unexpected Encounter with Jesus | Michael McLean

Have you ever felt like God was there, but He wasn’t answering your prayers? Michael McLean says he experienced this for nearly 10 years. But even as he waited and waited and waited to receive answers from the Lord, he learned in silence what the voice of the Lord sounded like to him and how God could answer his prayers in a way perfect for him.

#2 A Testimony to Weather the Storm | John Bytheway

Like an eclipse, our doubts can grow until they block out the light of the truths we know about the gospel. But when we see these doubts with the perspective of eternity, the light of the gospel can nourish our faith until the day when we will know the answers to all things.

#3 Filling the Empty | Emily Belle Freeman

We all want connections, friendships that can fill the empty in our lives. But often, these friendships don’t form with the people we expect, sometimes these friendships begin by approaching people who look different, act different, or think differently than we do. But by forming these unexpected friendships, we can enrich our lives in the ways we never imagined.

#4 Being a Light | Tim Ballard

Light and darkness can never occupy the same place at the same time. And when we take the time to do the things that feed our spirits, we can shine the light of Christ into the darkest corners of humanity. Operation Underground Railroad founder Tim Ballard knows this well and shares how even in the most evil places, the light of Christ can shine.

#5 Experiencing Your Plan of Happiness | Hank Smith

Has something unexpected ever happened in your life that seemed to throw your plan for happiness off the rails? Maybe it was the death of a loved one, an unexpected illness, or a dream that never manifested. However, whatever trials we face in this life that seem to drain our happiness, there is always hope. As Hank Smith explains, our circumstances don’t have to dedicate the joy we can feel in this life. We can make the decision to seek a happy life.

#6 If You Can Laugh About It, You Can Live With It | Brad Wilcox

Having a sense of humor helps us keep perspective, but that’s not its only purpose. It can help us strengthen relationships with others as we let down our walls and let go of our pride. Brad Wilcox explains how powerful maintaining a good sense of humor can be and helps us find joy in our lives.

#7 Receiving His Unspeakable Gift | Laurel C. Day

No matter where we go, no matter what happens, we always have the safety of the Atonement to rely on. And when life takes an expected turn, this protection helps us to keep going on our mortal journey as we rely on the Savior.

#8 Discovering the Angels Around You | Alyssa Parker

“Do you see it? Everything is connected.” Though at the time these words didn’t mean much to Alissa Parker, they were some of the last she would hear her daughter speak. On Dec. 14, 2015, Alissa’s daughter Emily was killed in the Sandy Hook shootings. And while navigated the long and painful road to healing, Alissa discovered how we are all connected as children of God and how we can become each other’s ministering angels.

#9 Saved By the Well | Tamu Smith & Zandra Vranes

Are we dehydrated? Do our spirits thirst for the pure water of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Like the woman at the well, we can embrace the Savior as the source of living water. We can find comfort and joy in the fact that God is aware of us and that we are saved through His gospel.

#10 Becoming Women of Faith in Christ | S. Michael Wilcox

The story of the woman who washed Christ’s feet with her hair and poured oil on His head is relativity well known. Her actions were symbolic of preparing the Savior’s body for death, and were very tender in their humility. However, some complained that the oil, which was very expensive, could have been sold and the money given to the poor. But the Savior replied, “Let her alone, why trouble ye her?. . . She hath done what she could.” We, like the Savior, need to respond with sympathy rather than severity with the best others can offer and withhold our censure from what we may not understand.

TOFW Love List: Mother's Day Gift Guide

 
Untitled design.png
 

Don’t you love the chance Mother’s Day gives us to celebrate the amazing women in our lives? We are able to think of our moms and so many other women who have changed our lives. Just think of your best friends, the neighbors who have become second moms to your kids, and co-workers and friends who have been there for you when you’ve just needed a hug. We have gathered a few of our favorite gifts that we know she will love! No matter what category that special woman falls into, these gifts will help you show her just how much she is loved this Mother’s Day.

 
 

Atonement (Framed Art)

We are inspired by artist Kate Lee’s simple yet powerful messages through watercolor. We think the mom in your life will love her work too.  A gift of fine art helps show how priceless mom is to you.


TOFW Hear Keychain

Not only will the TOFW 2019 theme keychain remind her every day that she’s special to you, it also is a daily reminder of God’s love. The pretty floral design with script writing is like you’re giving her a happy thought each time she pulls out her keys.


The Book of Mormon, Journal Edition

We love the journal editions of the Book of Mormon. As a gift this says, her thoughts matter. Round out this gift with a set of some of our favorite fine-tipped pens, perfect for recording inspirations in the margins.


2019 TOFW Study Guide

A Study Guide on Personal Revelation

We love the idea of taking a spiritual journey together. Gift one of our study guides to yourself and your mom or best friend and grow in personal revelation together. The experience of going through this eight-week study guide is meant to be shared.


TOFW Silver Leaf Classic Necklace

We love that our TOFW Grow Necklace now comes in silver! The classic design is a perfect gift for the women in your life who’ve attended TOFW with you or those who inspire your faith to grow in the gospel. Makes a great gift for the special women you serve with.


Hope in the Hands of the Potter Vase

We love the title of this piece, “Hope in the Hands of the Potter.” This vase says how much her testimony of the Savior has helped shape your own.


2019 “Hear Him” Print

Remind the women you love this Mother’s Day of the powerful and simple ways we receive personal revelation by gifting them this poem print. Either size, 5x7 or 8x10, makes an easy yet thoughtful gift for someone who inspires you.


Bookshelf Plus Subscription Gift Card

We love Bookshelf Plus because it means we have great listening and reading material with us wherever we go with the Bookshelf app. Share the gift of daily wisdom by giving her a subscription to this service. We promise she’ll love it. Bonus: TOFW talks are available too!


2019 TOFW Tote Bag

We love the original hand-lettered design and dusty blue color of the 2019 TOFW tote. This practical yet attractive tote says the reminder that “He made thee to hear his voice.” It is a thoughtful gift to help your friends and loved ones keep their busy lives organized, like you’re there to lend a helping hand when you’re not around in person. The generous dimensions (14” deep, 17” across, 8” wide) make it ideal for trips to the store, library, church or work.


2019 theme scripture Print

The TOFW 2019 theme scripture print makes the perfect gift for the ministering sisters in your life, assigned or chosen. We love the personal feel of the hand-lettered design and the black and white goes with any home décor. The print comes in two sizes, 5x7 or 8x10, perfect for framing or gifting on its own.


Our Happy Place Welcome Mat

Do you go in through the front door or the back door when you visit mom? Do you knock or let yourself in your best friend’s home? Either way, tell her how glad you are to walk in each time you’re there. She’s the reason it’s your happy place.

Announcing the TOFW Theme for 2019

TOFW has one big goal in 2019: to help you increase your spiritual capacity to receive personal revelation. When each of us accomplishes this goal, we are able to grow, minister, and righteously influence those around us.

Without further ado, we are thrilled to announce our 2019 tour theme:

TOFW Theme Announcement.png

President Russell M. Nelson said it best, “In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.”

While all of us want more revelation to guide our lives, it can sometimes feel hard to come by. Because, let’s be honest, life can be noisy and full of distractions. Whether it’s the nagging of your never-ending to-do list, a very difficult and personal struggle with anxiety, or the noise of social media, we can easily find ourselves disconnected from heaven’s voice.

Our prayer is that when you attend TOFW you will be able to quiet the commotion and find the personalized inspiration needed to develop what Julie B. Beck called, “ . . . the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life” (“And upon the Handmaids in Those Days Will I Pour Out My Spirit,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2010, 11). 

We are grateful for the opportunity to come together and bask in the blessing that is personal revelation this coming year.

With Love,

The TOFW Team

Your Questions Answered

B35I3680.jpg

You may have noticed we're making a few changes to the 2019 TOFW tour. And because TOFW has become a longstanding tradition for so many of you (for which we are grateful), we want to explain why.  

Why aren't you coming to (FILL IN THE BLANK CITY)?

We wish we could bring TOFW to every city, every year, but it's just not always feasible. As we plan a new tour we evaluate a host of things including venue access and availability; speaker and staff capacity; and the ability to sell enough tickets to cover the costs of holding an event this size. 

We recognize that some of you don't have as many opportunities to gather and be spiritually uplifted, and it weighs on our hearts and minds. So we are exploring how we could use technology to make TOFW an annual experience for more of you, wherever you live.

As we have in the past we will continue to look at rotating which cities we visit.

Why isn't there TOFG this year?

It's been a tradition to bring Time Out for Girls to many of our TOFW tour cities, but after careful consideration, we have decided to push pause on TOFG for 2019.

We recognize the great responsibility that comes with inspiring and influencing our Latter-day Saint youth and it's important to us that we do it right. This break will give us the opportunity to evaluate and assess how to best serve these remarkable young women.

What is the price structure for TOFW?

TOFW has always existed for something bigger than making money. We exist to lift and inspire faithful women who will in turn influence families and communities. That's why we've always been committed to keeping registration as low as possible while still delivering a world class production for our attendees.

Regular registration is only $89 for the full event. As a perk to our loyal attendees who plan in advance, we offer 2 discount periods where registering early will pay off big!

  • During our Christmas and Mother's Day pre-sales we offer the lowest price for individual registration, only $69 each, a $20 savings off of regular registration. (that's the group price without the group!)

  • Early registration begins after holiday pre-sales end and we offer the most popular GROUP discount; $20 off when you register a group of 4 or more. The best way to come to TOFW is with the women you love most, so gather your group and save! The group discount along with other early registration discounts will be available until about a month before the event (check each event page for details and dates).

  • The $89 regular registration pricing goes into effect for the month before the event. If an event has not sold out, registration can be purchased onsite the day of the event but a tote and workbook is not guaranteed.

  • Single day options, if available, will be listed on the purchase page.

Are there changes to the format?

We have one big goal: to create an event with you in mind. So we have given TOFW a little facelift. Just some simple pops and refinements to freshen it up and make it even more relevant and meaningful to you. Over the years, we've heard a couple of recurring themes about the Friday evening event. First, that it's tricky to get dinner and get to the event on time. And second, that by the time Friday wraps up, you're exhausted. Additionally, we know lodging has often been a burden. So, we’ve made a few tweaks to serve our audience in the best possible way. 1) We shifted start and end times slightly to more conveniently serve attendees’ busy schedules. 2) We've created a more casual Friday evening opening event, with a fun presenter discussion and a special mini-concert or an extended special presentation. It will be a fun, relaxed evening. So if you need to skip Friday night, you won't miss the meat of the event, but you will miss out on a little fun (wink). 3) We've designed the Saturday main event with concentrated focus on the theme delivered by presenters in a pattern that gives spiritual insight, uplifting conversation, and practical take-aways to help you leave with a "greater capacity to receive personal revelation". You will be hearing from the same number of presenters and musicians as before so you’ll be getting all the great content and learning you’ve enjoyed in the past, just refreshed and better!

9 Incredible Benefits of TOFW

 

B35I2893.jpg

1. Spend time with my sisters

We all need our sisters. You know, the women we can always count on, whether we’re related or not. So why not set aside a weekend to feel the Spirit with the women you love most? Not to mention, the chance to enjoy a Spirit filled weekend together.

2. Refocus my life goals

With all the distractions in the world today, it’s more important than ever to stay focused on what really matters in life. Why not take a second and re-evaluate our goals while listening to inspiring stories from other Latter-day Saints?

 

B35I4581.jpg

3. A “you got this, girl” reminder

We all need “you got this, girl” reminders. Come and hear uplifting messages to remind you that you are a daughter of our Heavenly Father and there’s nothing you can’t do with His help.

 

4. See a fresh gospel perspective

We can easily get caught up in our day-to-day gospel bubbles and miss seeing and appreciating the different perspectives out there. TOFW will give you a fresh perspective on doctrine from Latter-day Saints scholars that will help you learn more about every day doctrine.

 

5. Uninterrupted spiritual me-time

Let’s be honest, sometimes the only way we can get me-time is by hide in the pantry with our secret chocolate stash. No more! Come and spend some uninterrupted spiritual me-time.

 

6. Find peace amid the storms of life

We all experience storms of life that leave us feeling like peace is out of reach. But when we gather in places where the Spirit can calm our minds and hearts, we find peace. Set aside a Spirit filled weekend to search for peace and answers to life’s questions at TOFW that will help you better endure your trials.

 

7. Re-center my life on Christ

From time to time, we all need to re-center our lives on Christ. It happens, and luckily, there are places like TOFW where you can take a second, catch your breath, and invite Christ back into your life.

 

8. No cry shaming

Here’s a secret: pretty much everyone cries at TOFW. It’s a fact, like gravity or rush hour traffic. But you have to don’t worry about “cry-shaming” because you’re among friends. We’ll laugh together and then cry together, because that’s what sisters do.

 

9. Receive answers to my questions

Answers to our spiritual questions come in a variety of ways. They may come during scripture study, while listening to the lyrics of your favorite song, or the advice of a dear friend. TOFW provides the perfect environment to feel the Spirit and the Lord may speak to your heart and reveal some of the answers you have been seeking.

TOFG On Hold for 2019 Tour: Here's Why

It’s been a tradition to bring Time Out for Girls to many of our TOFW tour cities, but after careful consideration we have decided to push pause on TOFG for 2019.
