September Newsletter

Welcome to Relief Society
"And now, my beloved brethren, I desire that ye should remember these things, and that ye should work out your salvation with fear before God, and that ye should no more deny the coming of Christ; that ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you."Alma 34:37-38, Book of Mormon

Quotes from the Minute Book:

The popular institutions of the day should not be our guide—that as daughters of Zion we should set an example for all the world.” Eliza R. Snow
· “We must cherish one another, watch over one another, comfort one another, and give instruction that we may all sit down in Heaven together.” Lucy Mack Smith
· “Nothing is so much calculated as to lead people to forsake sin as to take them by the hand and watch over them in tenderness.”
Joseph Smith
· “Our duties to each other, seek out and relieve the distressed, that each member should be ambitious to do good—that the members should deal frankly with each other, to watch over the morals and be very careful of the character and reputation of the members of the institution.” Emma Smith

"Yea, I would that ye would come forth and harden not your hearts any longer; for behold, now is the time and the day of your salvation; and therefore, if ye will repent and harden not your hearts, immediately shall the great plan of redemption be brought about unto you. For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors."
