I have read and studied this wonderful, beautifully done book that has been given to us women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to strengthen us. I have marked numerous passages that have touched my heart. There is so much information to digest. I have gone back and reread many pages. It has been uplifting, and it will be a guide for me to refer to often.
I am grateful for those sisters throughout the history of the Church who were so faithful and paved the way for the Relief Society as it is today.
We are beloved daughters of God, and we are members of a great society of loving, caring sisters who give their all.
I feel so blessed to be in the Relief Society with the special sisters that we have who daily serve one another. I love each one of them. They are great examples to all.
I love my Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ and know that they know me, love me, and bless me. I am blessed to be a woman. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon are true. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet and leads the true Church on the earth today.
I testify of these things in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, amen.
