Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Today, we celebrate the founding of the Relief Society, one of the largest women’s organizations in the world!
Behold, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou art an elect lady, whom I have called.—Doctrine and Covenants 25:3
I feel a certainty that as each sister does her part to ensure that the purposes of Relief Society are fulfilled, angels will be our associates and we will be participants in amazing miracles. —Julie B. Beck
