Faith, Hope and Charity: Inspiration from the Lives of General Relief Society Presidents
Since the day in 1842 when the Prophet Joseph Smith “turned the key” in behalf of the women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, signaling the organization of the Relief Society, fifteen women have served as general presidents of the organization. From Emma Hale Smith, the first Relief Society president, to Bonnie D. Parkin, who from 2002 to 2007 led more than five million Relief Society sisters in 165 nations across the earth, Faith, Hope, and Charity tells the stories of the Relief Society presidents of the LDS Church.
These are stories of courage, faith, service, and compassion — stories that provide a greater understanding of the Lord's work and of those who lead out in performing it.
Through the persecutions of the Church in Nauvoo, the problems of establishing new homes and communities in the west, the crises associated with plural marriage, the poverty of the depression of the 1930s, two world wars, and confusion over the changing status of women in recent years, these elect ladies have each applied their particular talents and insights to unite the sisters of a worldwide church.
Faith, Hope, and Charity is an inspiring look at some who have had leading roles in helping to make a difference for women, the Church, and the world.
