I remember one week in church she was assigned to not buy anything as a family, and to just eat from our food storage. We had a very small apartment at the time, and not much space for food storage. We made it until we had the missionaries over for dinner. My mom bought ice cream to serve them.
On of the high lights of her service as the president was putting on a Hawaiian luau party for the sisters.
