Description

Product Description

How important are women in the restored church of Jesus Christ? We learn something about the answer to the question from a simple historic fact: In 1842, the Prophet Joseph Smith took time to attend several meetings of the Female Relief Society of Nauvoo and give personal instruction to the women there. He did this at a time of great personal turmoil, when persecutions were raging and his responsibilities were heavy. He did it at a time when society barely acknowledged women as having any kind of status at all. On six separate occasions, he taught the women personally about their privileges, their opportunities, their obligations, and the blessings the Lord had in store for them in His kingdom. The Beginning of Better Days includes Joseph Smiths six timeless sermons to the women of Nauvoo, along with personal essays from Sheri Dew and Virginia H. Pearce that help us better understand the sermons and their relevance for Latter-day Saint women today. The authors have attempted to share a little about their own processes of discovery regarding the sermons and say that is what worked for them. What works for you may be similar or it may be completely different. The important thing is to dig in.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love both Virginia Pearce and Sheri Dew. Their essays provided informative, inspiring background for the text of the Relief Society meeting minutes. Even if you decide not to read this book, I would still recommend reading the meeting minutes, which can be found free online. After reading them I feel especially empowered and humbled to be a woman in Relief Society.
