Stake Women’s Conference & Message from Stake RS Presidency
The following teachings are basic tenets of our faith presented in the Proclamation of the Family and the recent Proclamation of the Restoration:
- We are daughters of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny.
- …the heavens are open. God is making known His will for His beloved sons and daughters.
We are reminded daily that we are physical beings that live in this tumultuous world with tension, hatred, unrest, divisiveness, physical isolation and pandemic. We are human and are subject to anxiety, depression, worry and confusion. How can we remember our divine heritage and obtain inner strength, resilience and healing through our faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement? What revelations have we received and what have we learned from this time of physical distancing and schedule upheaval?
What are tools and resources that we can employ along with our faith that can help us manage these feelings of anxiety and stress that are part of our mortal experience?
Our Stake Women’s conference will be presented virtually this year using Zoom on Saturday, September 19 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. All Relief Society sisters and Young Women are invited. Our hope is to provide a special program for these days and these times.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
