Women's Meeting

Relief Society Meeting was today. It was great like always.

I didn't get all the notes that I wanted but thankfully it will be in the Ensign conference issue. Gotta love that.

Some of the notes that I wrote down were:

Relief Society was a part of the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And it has been in ancient times also.
I guess I never thought about that. If the Lord made all types of programs of our church, of course He made the Relief Society. And how cool is that that we are a part of something, us women that other women were a part of!

Relief Society has three purposes: To do our part, strengthens families and service to the Lord.
Every meeting is to strengthen sisters.

We have 128 temples in service today. That is amazing!!

Pay tithing equals Blessings

There's no need to go in search for people to help. Most our in our reach within our ward, visiting teachees, RS meetings, etc.

Rejoice in blessings of the Church.

We are treasured daughter of Heavenly Father. (I have always heard that we are daughters but never treasured. It's true. We are counted and taking care of like jewels.)

The more you rely on the Spirit the more creative you will be.

Work will cure your grief...serve the Lord.

That's about all I got. I'm sure I missed a whole bunch. I can't wait until General Conference next week. I can't wait to see what the Authorities have to say!

I want to know what you got from the meeting...share away. (And if you aren't LDS, I'll have the link up soon, when it comes out.)

Hey girly! So great to meet ya! My favorite part of the broadcast was President Uchtdorf saying....CREATE without fear of imperfection. That is so what I needed to hear. I am a perfectionist. I don't want to do it if it isn't going to be perfect.. I REALLY needed to hear that. :) So glad to find a new blogging buddy!
