Relief Society Objectives notebook for YW entering RS
Hi my name is Pennee, I live in Utah
I made this little booklet for my secret sister that is transitioning into Relief Society this summer to just introduce her to a few of the objectives, purposes, and motto of the Relief Society. (according to www.lds.org, alot of them I didn’t know, so it was a learning experience for both of us). It’s just a cute little notebook that secures closed with stretchy string. I wrapped it up in a cute cellophane bag and sent it to her with a note that read something like this:
**NOTE ABOUT PICTURES**
I asked the gal that made this about where she got the pictures from and she said that got them from old calendars. Sorry I can’t be more help then that.
I made this little booklet just for you.
Since you will be transitioning into Relief Society soon, I wanted to share with you a little bit about the specific goals, purpose, and objectives each sister should strive for in Relief Society.
(this is according to what I researched on www.lds.org)
I learned many things in the process that I really didn’t know before either.
(so, of course, I had to make a booklet for me too).
But, as far as I can tell, Relief Society doesn’t have a yearly theme or motto like YM/YW or primary.
Relief Society’s purpose, objectives, and motto are more constant and continuous, like forever and righteous.
Because “Charity Never Faileth”. Right?
It is the pure love of Christ.
Relief Society is a symbol of service and sacrifice.
The wonderful thing that it doesn’t say is: that through this service and sacrifice we can truly find ourselves.
In Sheri Dew’s new book “Saying It Like It Is” she defines a wonderful message in knowing who you divinely are, and the blessings that come in being that person:
“Noble and great. Courageous and determined. Faithful and fearless. That is who you are and who you have always been. And understanding it can change your life, because this knowledge carries a confidence that cannot be duplicated any other way”.
So take a look at exactly what the purpose and objectives of Relief Society are and how carefully and strategically Young Women has prepared you for this next step in your existence. Always remember your values. Let them color your life, because in this world of learning, it’s always going to be: ”line upon line, precept upon precept……”
And I can testify– if you always know who you are, follow your values, remember where you’ve been, and be aware of where you are going, you will forever be prepared and at peace in the world–but most of all,
You will keep the Savior close to your heart and you will feel his comforting presence in your life.
That is when you learn the true meaning of charity.
With all my love
Your Relief Society Secret Sister
