Daughters in my Kingdom-The First Women of Relief Society
There was an amazing spirit of love and gratitude for these faithful women, so many of them unknown but who will always be remembered for their strength during great trials. It is not known what became of them, but I am sure their lives were difficult and probably many of them were martyred. What a great example they are of faith and dedication to their Savior, Jesus Christ.
I believe that these are the first women of Relief Society. They created a pattern of service which was restored again in 1842, under the direction of priesthood keys. May we (I) honor their memory-by following their example of their faith, commitment and love for the Lord.
