On Saturday our ward's Relief Society had a fun Sisters retreat/get to know activity. We had a wonderful spiritual workshop, tried a hand paraffin wax, learned how to make your own body scrub and had the option of doing a meditation session or yoga. oh and a resourcing session where we talk about the things that we wont to learn or need. All this followed by a delicious Lunch. In helping to get know each other I made these name-tags you see below. I heard great things from the sisters that day and now we are using them each Sunday in Relief Society. 
I am so grateful for the Relief Society Organization. In the 9 years that I have attended Relief Society I have learn tremendously from the examples of great women. This weekend is the General Relief Society meeting where we will be hearing from the RS presidency and most of the time from the Churches presidency or one of the apostles. Its wonderful to think that all the sisters in the world that are part of this organization will be uplifted in the things the Lord sees fit to address. 

Enough of me preaching. Here are the pictures. 

“As women participate in Relief Society, they serve as valiant disciples of Jesus Christ in the work of salvation.”

“We are the Lord's hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve and to lift His children.”
Thomas S. Monson, in Daughters in My Kingdom
