“Message,” Daughters in My Kingdom, ix
In grateful recognition of the blessing of Relief Society in the lives of Church members, we have directed the preparation of Daughters in My Kingdom: The History and Work of Relief Society. We pray that this book will be a blessing to you and to those whose lives you touch.
We express our love and admiration for you and recognize that you are beloved daughters of Heavenly Father and dedicated disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. You are part of a great worldwide sisterhood. Guided by your motto, “Charity never faileth,” you help strengthen families and build up the kingdom of God on the earth.
We encourage you to study this book and allow its timeless truths and inspiring examples to influence your lives.
We testify that the Lord has restored the fulness of the gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that Relief Society is an important part of that restoration. Relief Society sisters have a glorious heritage. We pray that this volume will be an important resource for preserving that heritage.
The First Presidency
