The Prophet Joseph Smith organized the Relief Society in 1842, championed women, and gave them personal instruction at a time when women were barely acknowledged. Despite his own life being in turmoil, he made sure to give priority to the women of the Church. In this short booklet, Sheri Dew helps us understand what the Prophet Joseph would want us to know today: that women play a crucial role in the kingdom of God and that our divine capacity to understand things of the Spirit and the heart allows us to love, strengthen, and lift each other with charity. It was designed just with Mother’s Day in mind and is perfect for wards and groups. You can get them here.
Elder Richard G. Scott taught that “knowledge carefully recorded is knowledge available in time of need. Spiritually sensitive information should be kept in a sacred place that communicates to the Lord how you treasure it.” If you’ve ever wished you’d written down a prompting, recorded a tender mercy, or kept track of personal revelations, My Spiritual Experiences Journal is for you. Eight themed sections give plenty of space to record those moments you’ve wanted to keep for yourself and your posterity. Theme prompts help jog your memories of spiritual experiences you’ve had and not yet recorded, or help highlight new experiences as they happen. My Spiritual Experiences Journal is a dedicated place to keep your experiences readily available for personal reflection, talks, lessons, and more. Get it here.
