General Relief Society Meeting

Tonight I had the opportunity of going to the General Relief Society Meeting at the Conference Center. It is always so neat to be in the same room as the Prophet of the Church.

Sister Beck made the announcement the the Midweek Home, Family and Personal Enrichment night will now be called a Relief Society Meeting. Very simple!

All the talks were on the importance of the Relief Society Orgnaization. The Moto of the Relief Society is:Charity Never Faileth” which stems from the first Relief Society meeting. The sisters were asked by the Prophet Joseph Smith to assist the brethren “in looking to the wants of the poor—searching after objects of charity, and in administering to their wants.” The sisters took this call to heart and became a society devoted to seeking out the poor and needy.

President Eying spoke on being your own legacy. Teaching your daughters by example to be a active participant in the Relief Society. I have one of the best examples possible in my Grandma. She has truly lived a life of Charity. I am very grateful for her legacy!

My sweet friend Lori invited me to go with her and her two daughters, Kelly& Carly. We went to dinner afterwords at the Olive Garden. It was such a nice evening out.
