Relief Society (What We Believe Series)

Relief Society is my church's women group. It was organized on March 17, 1842. All women ages 18 and up attend this class each week and we have monthly meetings as well. Our motto is "Charity never faileth" and we were organized on principle of faith and service. I am grateful to be a part of the Relief Society and so I was wanting to write a poem about it. Since I couldn't find the right words, I found one by somebody else.

Relief Society
Long a go in Nauvoo twenty sisters sat.
Side by side a rainbow of difference.
From the newest rose bud,
To the full mature bloom of womanhood.
Knitted together in faith, harmonised in aim.
They were sisters.
We too are known and loved by the same Father.
Striving to build the kingdom one family, one home at a time.
Much strength is drawn from our sisterhood.
Our sister stumbles as we have,
We reach to lift and steady her.
Tired and weary, yet not alone,
the courage, commitment and testimony of our sisters spurs us on.
Our Father's work to do.
Behold the handmaids of the Lord
We are his hands and through us
Charity never faileth.
