Arise and Shine Forth by Relief Society (29/81)

A Collection of talks from the 2000 Women's Conference - Sponsored by Brigham Young University and the Relief Society

Is it good for women to be alone - the answer is no .... Women need other Women ...

I was unfortunately never in Salt Lake City whenever the Women's Conferences where on so this is the next best thing for me ... The Book with all the talks enclosed !!!

It is so refreshing to read the experiences of other women in the Church ... Each year they have a theme and in 2000 it was "Arise and shine Forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations" Doctrine and Covenants 115:5 ... It says that it is a bold call and a sacred responsibility for all those who answer it, whether it be a parent, teacher, grandparent, leader, sister, or friend .. How do we answer the call? How do we "arise and shine forth"?

I love this book and re-read it often especially if I have a talk or lesson coming up ... There are 54 talks included by different women all from different backgrounds ... If you are lucky enough to attend the conferences I am abit jealous .... But if you are like me and cannot but still wish to feel the spirit then these books are the next best thing ...

I rate this book 5*****
