Relief Society

Russell_M_Nelson“Attacks against the Church, its doctrine, and our way of life are going to increase. Because of this, we need women who have a bedrock understanding of the doctrine of Christ and who will use that understanding to teach and help raise a sin-resistant generation. We need women who can detect deception in all its forms. We need women who know how to access the power that God makes available to covenant keepers and who express their beliefs with confidence and charity.”
– Russell M. Nelson


Russell_M_Nelson“The Kingdom of God is not and cannot be complete without women who make sacred covenants and keep them.”
– Russell M. Nelson



Lorenzo Snow“The Apostle James said that ‘pure religion’ and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world’. Accepting that as true, the members of the Relief Society have most surely exemplified in their lives pure an undefiled religion; for they have ministered to those in affliction, they have thrown their arms of love around the fatherless and the widows, and they have kept themselves unspotted from the world. I can testify that there are no purer and more God fearing women in the world than are to be found within the ranks of the Relief Society.”
