To Mothers Carrying the Torch of Faith and Family by Jeffrey R. Holland
“In this great, eternal work, mothers have carried the torch of faith and family from the beginning. The need for that torch to burn brightly and dispel darkness has never been greater,” writes Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In this thoughtful book for mothers, Elder and Sister Holland reflect on the crucial role of motherhood in fulfilling the purposes of eternity, as well as the challenges that all mothers experience. Filled with hope and encouragement, their message will resonate with mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, and teachers. Concludes Elder Holland, “To all mother sin every circumstance, including those who struggle, I say, ‘God bless you. You are doing better than you think you are.”‘
She’s a Mom: If You Think Her Hands Are Full, You Should See Her Heart
All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
Who can overstate the joys and blessings of motherhood? There is no responsibility more sacred, no privilege more divine, no calling closer to heaven. The righteous influence of a mother on her children can be seen through countless generations; her love is eternal.
Our Heavenly Father treasures His precious daughters and wants them to remember their great worth. In She’s a Mom, encouraging words from prophets and other inspired leaders remind mothers everywhere that they’re doing a wonderful job. “As a mother, yours is the work of salvation.”
—Jeffrey R. Holland
Women of Influence by Jack R. Christianson
“We need women who know how to access the power that God makes available to covenant keepers.” – President Russell M. Nelson.
For His toughest battles, God requires His strongest warriors, and He does not leave them alone. As the chasm between good and evil broadens constantly in the latter days, the time to be neutral has passed, and the Lord has need of willing women who will fight for His cause and defend His truth.
Prophets and Apostles extend no greater praise than to the women of the Church for their compassionate service, integral devotion, and immeasurable faith. To you, a member of His royal army, God has promised to build you up and buoy your feet as you share your heavenly influence.
Sisters Arise! by Lynne Perry Christofferson
What do the wimples and crisping pins mentioned by Isaiah have to do with modern Latter-day Saint women? These unfamiliar terms represent the trappings of worldliness, a worldliness that is more accessible than ever as cyberspace opens the door into our homes, our hands, and our minds. InSisters, Arise! author Lynne Perry Christofferson presents Latter-day Saint women with a call to action—an appeal to work together to combat the dangerous attitudes and behaviors of the world and to stand as examples of virtuous living.
With no-nonsense discussion on how to avoid falling victim to spiritual deception, sisters are encouraged to escape the pitfall of simply being less worldly than the world. Through scriptures, quotes, stories, and music, the author addresses a range of topics—from modesty and self-esteem to the quest for perfection. Each thought-provoking chapter is an invitation for women to examine themselves honestly as they move closer to becoming the women the Lord intends them to be.
The First Fifty Years of Relief Society by Various Authors
This collection of original documents explores the fascinating and largely unknown history of the Relief Society in the nineteenth century. The story begins with the founding of the Nauvoo Female Relief Society, and the complete and unabridged minutes of that organization are reproduced in this book for the first time in print.
The large majority of the volume covers the lesser-known period after the Relief Society was reestablished in territorial Utah and began to spread to areas as remote as Hawaii and England. Not only did Relief Society women care for their families and the poor, they manufactured and sold goods, went to medical school, gave healing blessings and set apart Relief Society officers, stored grain, built assembly halls, fought for women’s suffrage, founded a hospital, defended the practice of plural marriage, and started the Primary and Young Women organizations. Prominent in the documents are the towering figures of Mormon women’s history from this period, including Emma Smith, Eliza R. Snow, Emmeline B. Wells, Zina D. H. Young, and many others.
