"Latter-day Saint Women in Today's Changing World", Belle S. Spafford, At The Pulpit: 185 Years of Discourses by Latter-day Saint Women
Women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints live in countries all around the world, speak hundreds of languages, and encounter unique challenges, but they do have one thing in common: they are doing their best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Join us for a discussion with Lisa Olsen Tait about an empowering address given in 1975 by former general relief society president Belle Spafford, highlighting the important role women play in the Church, their communities, and in the world.
“Women owe it to themselves to develop their full potential as women—to exercise their mental capacities, to enlarge upon their talents, and to increase their skills—in order that they may give to the world the best they have.” - Belle S. Spafford
“The church can enable women of the world to determine what should receive priorities in their lives. Latter-day Saint women have at their command the firm and infallible guidelines that lead toward the full development and total usefulness of womankind.” - Belle S. Spafford
