Wednesday Words

It has become a tradition in the Portsmouth Ward Relief Society to welcome the graduating Laurels into Relief Society and we prepare a special lesson just for them.   This year we had the honor of welcoming  Amanda Martin into the Relief Society.  We learned what a great young woman she is and how much those in Young Women will miss her.  

Our lesson explained how the values and activities learned and practiced in the Young Women program are the stepping stones to the values and life activities the women of Relief Society live every day.  

For example, the Young Women’s pledge states that as they accept and act upon the eight values they learn throughout their time in Young women, they will be prepared to  strengthen home and family.  As  Relief Society sisters we dedicate ourselves to strengthening home and family.   Everything they learn in young women is  preparatory to the life they will lead and be supported in through Relief Society. It was a great lesson for all of us, not just Amanda.   


Amanda, we welcome  you into our fold of sisters.  We are a sisterhood of friends.
