A little Relief Society History
"The Relief Society has great significance for every member of the Church. All of us have been blessed through the example andservice of its members.
"I am the beneficiary of at least four different generations of Relief Society service: my grandmother, my mother, my wife, and our daughters...."
"From its beginning, the Relief Society has led out in charitable work. At the first meeting, President Emma Smith said, 'Each member should be ambitious to do good.'2 The minutes of
those initial meetings are filled with accounts of how the sisters obtained work opportunities for
the needy, took in the homeless, and made donations to help those in need of food, shelter,
"In the initial meetings of Relief Society, the Prophet Joseph Smith taught that the society 'is not only to relieve the poor, but to save souls.'3"
