I became a member of the Relief Society in 1961 as a newly married woman. This women’s organization has been a major influence in my life. It has provided many opportunities for me to serve others in and out of the community. I have been especially blessed by the visiting teaching program where we look after the needs and welfare of the other women in this organization. The compassionate service program helps the members help those in need. Eventually, we are blessed by the service of one another. I also appreciate the many lifelong friends I have made through this inspired program.
