Our first “social media” General Young Women President?

I’m sure many of you have heard by now that there is a new General Young Women President as of this past weekend’s General Conference. My wife is the Young Women President in our ward, so she took particular interest in this. As I was searching for information about here, I found others who had posted that Bonnie Lee Green Oscarson has a Pinterest page. She shows up as Bonnie Oscarson (only the Church would use her long full name) and her username is mormor20.

If you visit her Pinterest boards, you’ll see that she has a lot of fun. Just today she posted a picture that shows the new Young Women General Presidency and compares them to the look of the fairy godmothers in Sleeping Beauty. Very cute!

There are several Young Women in the ward who love Pinterest, so if Sister Oscarson keeps pinning, I’m sure the girls will be quite interested in what she has to say.

As a side note, apparently Karen J Ashton was a member of the General Young Women Board. She is the wife of Alan C Ashton, the WordPerfect creator. He was the Mission President here in the Toronto area from 2004-2007, so I’ve met/seen her and heard her speak in person. She is excellent. I wonder if she’ll still be on the board when it is called again.

UPDATE: The paragraph above about Karen J Ashton originally said that she is a member. The page I linked to may get updated at some point, but at the time of this writing it is showing the former board members.
