In need of a pep talk? Former Relief Society general president Elaine L. Jack's 1993 devotional, "Get A Life," will challenge you to deepen your gratitude for the life you live and to "choose life" by living the gospel of Jesus Christ. On today's episode, guest Elizabeth Kuehn, Joseph Smith Paper's project historian specializing in women's and gender history, discusses Jack's direct, but loving message, her go-getter nature, and how she empowered women around the world during her service.
"Get a life. We are sons and daughters of God. We have the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are called to rise, not wallow. Brothers and sisters, let’s get a life." -Elaine L. Jack
"At times when I feel overwhelmed or alone, unsure or defeated, I remember that I have a Savior who understands and loves me. His atonement was personal; it was for me. He knows. He understands." - Elaine L. Jack
