Relief Society

The Church of Jesus Christ has an amazing organization for women called the Relief Society. This group includes all women, ages 18 and older, and gives those involved the opportunities to learn and serve together. Recently, my ward had a wonderful lesson on the Relief Society Declaration and I have since been studying the powerful points in this message. We were given the challenge to focus on one point and work to improve in that area. I hope that we can all review these powerful ideas and implement them more fully into our lives.

Relief Society Declaration
We are beloved spirit daughters of God, and our lives have meaning, purpose, and direction. As a worldwide sisterhood, we are united in our devotion to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Exemplar. We are women of faith, virtue, vision, and charity who:
~Increase our testimonies of Jesus Christ through prayer and scripture study.
~Seek spiritual strength by following the promptings of the Holy Ghost.
~Dedicate ourselves to strengthening marriages, families, and homes.
~Find nobility in motherhood and joy in womanhood.
~Delight in service and good works.
~Love life and learning.
~Stand for truth and righteousness.
~Sustain the priesthood as the authority of God on earth.
~Rejoice in the blessings of the temple, understand our divine destiny, and strive for exaltation.
