There is nothing better than starting off the New Year with a fresh reminder of the purpose of Relief Society.
The purpose of Relief Society is to “prepare women for the blessings of eternal life,” says Linda K. Burton, Relief Society General President.1 It is through faith, family, and relief that we engage in our “vital part in the work.”2
Relief Society “is a temporal and spiritual work,” says Carole M. Stephens, First Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency. “That is what the women did in the Savior’s day, and that is what we continue to do.”3
I especially like that it’s “a temporal and spiritual work”. As a mother I tend to get caught up in my own world and forget about those around me. I often feel overwhelmed just trying to accomplish my daily to-do’s and taking care of my kiddos. But I have noticed, that on the days that I include the ‘temporal and spiritual work’ of helping others, my days run a bit smoother.
Let’s make it a goal to be better at providing relief and support temporally and spiritual to all around us!
Have a great New Years!!
