Good, Better, Best

Elder Dallin H. Oaks says, "We have to forego some good things in order to choose others that are better or best because they develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strengthen our families."

Please contact Sister Agosto at endagosto@hotmail.com if you have ideas for the monthly meetings that would develop faith and strengthen families. Thank you.

Fun at RS birthday

We want to thank all you wonderful sisters who came out and helped celebrate the 168th Anniversary for the Relief Society. We had a wonderful time listening to Bishop Pike relate some stories of the women in his life who are important as well as remind us how important we as women are to the Church. And as always, we had some good eats and fun chatting!

Below are some photos of the evening as well as a funny video showing just one of the ways to help reduce stress (this does involve the throwing of marshmellows, and no sisters were harmed in the making of this video :)

A Few Reminders Ladies!

1. This Sunday is Ward Conference. The Stake leaders will be teaching Relief Society so the scheduled lesson will be postponed until later in the month. Come Sunday ready to be enlightened. Immediately after church there will be a SMALL potluck of finger foods. (Sandwiches, chips and dessert) Those who signed up to bring something should bring it in the kitchen so it can be ready quickly.

2. Sunday is also the Songs of the Savior- a program of music and the spoken word performed by the missionaries - it will be 7:00 pm at the Miller's house. Seating is limited, and we ask that you invite non-members, or less active members to attend. If you need the address be sure to ask a member of the RS Presidency.

3. Also, Enrichment Night is on Tuesday the 18th at 6:30 pm. We will be putting together New-Comer Packets.
There will be a door prize drawing for sisters who are there BY 6:30 pm.
New Comers will be able to take home the folders that night.

Have a great Saturday sisters!

Here are some "good reads" to encourage you and your family
