Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Celebrate Mothers

Thursday, May 30, 2019 - by Phil Smartt

Women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Dayton gathered to celebrate mothers through the eyes of love.  The gathering included mothers, daughters, appetizers, sweet stories and friends.  Kristin Haynes, who serves as a counselor in the Dayton Relief Society, organized the event.  Relief Society is a women’s organization and an official auxiliary of The Church. 

Women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serve in various capacities.  “As a disciple of Jesus Christ, every woman in the Church is given the responsibility to know and defend the divine roles of women, which include that of wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. They stand strong and immovable in faith, in family, and in relief,” the Church teaches (see lds.org).  “Women participate in councils that oversee congregational activities throughout the world.”

Wendy Nelson, wife of President Russell M. Nelson, today’s prophet, said, “The greatest hero of women is the Savior Jesus Christ.  Because of that, it is great to be a woman in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”  She explained that women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints “actually do much that women pastors in other religious organizations do.  We teach doctrine to men and women; we pray from the pulpit; we lead organizations for women, youth, and children; we serve as missionaries.”

Women of The Church of Jesus Christ do this throughout the world – from Dayton to Russia to Vietnam, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, and everywhere in between.  In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, women are of infinite worth.  

To celebrate the worth of women, participants at Dayton’s Relief Society event shared stories of their mothers – of their faith, guidance, goodness and love.  All women are mothers, nurturers, regardless of whether they have children.  And women everywhere are needed.  “No one can do what a righteous woman can do,” President Nelson teaches.  “Women shape the future.  I urge you, with all the hope of my heart, to pray to understand your spiritual gifts – to cultivate, use, and expand them, even more than you ever have,” President Nelson continued.  “You will change the world as you do.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Dayton is at 3372 Rhea County Hwy.  Everyone is welcome.  We invite all to come unto Christ and find joy in following Him.

Government Failures

Sadly, this morning's Roy Exum: "Teachers Bolt At Tyner" is in fact hard news. But unvarnished truth perhaps is best left in "Opinion", as most people would prefer to not see the truth of what is happening to their children. It is after all, in my opinion, about as disgusting as watching the manufacture of "cottage cheese". Let's look at truths here. If your child's teacher ... (click for more)

It is now believed that ... (click for more)
