|Quote By: President Spencer W. Kimball
"As I visit the missions in the world, I hear the young men bear their testimonies. They say, 'My mother told me this. . . . my mother is prime, she's first.' She really is first, and if all women could understand this, they would want to have families instead of following the present fad . . . It has been said that 'When you educate a man, you educate an individual, but when you educate a woman, you educate a whole family' (Dr. Charles D. McIver). We want our women to be well educated, for children may not recover from the ignorance of their mothers" (Charge to Religious Educators, 1983, p. 43-47).

If they will be UNITED and speak with ONE VOICE,
Their STRENGTH will be INCALCULABLE!”

Relief Society - A Restoration of an Ancient Form
“A Restoration of an Ancient Pattern”
Although the name may be modern date,
the institution is of ANCIENT ORIGIN.
We were told by our martyred prophet
that the same organization EXISTED
in the church ANCIENTLY.”
