Children need to learn to manage their money, and Sister Boyack will explore everything from allowances to jobs to saving for college or missions. She will be discussing the practical how-to’s involved in the process.
Merrilee Boyack loves life and loves every season of life–especially this one! She enjoys hanging out with her hubby, four sons, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren and discussing politics. She is an estate-planning attorney preparing trusts, wills and powers of attorney and her law practice covers Utah and California. Merrilee is also a professional lecturer and speaks all over the country, featured for many years at BYU Education Week and Time Out for Women, and a published author. She loves to travel and meet people all over the world. Her perfect day is camping in a tent, reading a good book, taking a perfect hike, and eating FREE food.
Her current passion is working with Family Watch International as President for Utah. She is working to protect the family and children at the international level at the United Nations and in supporting governments around the world to institute measures to protect families. Merrilee also has created a coalition of pro-family organizations in Utah to support family and traditional values—the Empowered Families Coalition. She is a passionate community activist working to protect traditional values and liberties. She is the author of several books and talks, including The Parenting Breakthrough; Strangling Your Husband Is Not an Option; In Trying Times, Just Keep Trying; and her most recent, The Mismatched Nativity. Merrilee and her husband, Steve, reside in Lehi, Utah.
