August 2010

Presidency Message

The focus of the Relief Society theme this month is :

“Find nobility in motherhood and joy in womanhood.”

The family is central to the creator's plan for His children.
Women have been given the privilege of helping accomplish that plan of happiness.

Prophets have been relentless in declaring that the role of homemaker is one of the most sacred, noble and meaningful pursuits possible to a woman.

Pres. Spencer W. Kimball said to the sisters of the Church:

“Each of you should be grateful to be a woman! be a righteous woman is a glorious thing in any age. To be a righteous woman during the winding up scenes on this earth, before the second coming of our Savior, is an especailly noble calling. The righteous woman's strength and influence today can be tenfold what it might be in more tranquil times. “

The noblility of this calling from the Lord presents an opportunity to strengthen the family and fill the earth with greater kindness and gentleness, greater love and compassion, greater sympathy and

Mary Ellen Smoot, former Relief Society General President, said:

”It is time to give ourselves to the Master and allow Him to lead us into fruitful fields where we can enrich a world filled with darkness and misery.”

The Joy that comes from exercising our privileges as a woman cannot be underestimated as the Lord blesses us. With the direction and inspiration of the Spirit our efforts become, ”an Instrument in the
Hands of God.”

May we be equal to our task,
