What is Relief Society?

From the Preface of the book "Daughters in My Kingdom: The History and Work of Relief Society"

Seek Out and Help Others

"[The] work of...Relief Society...[is the] relief of all that hinders the joy and progress of women." John A. Widtsoe

“Something Extraordinary”

In the first meeting of the Relief Society, Sister Emma Smith said, “We are going to do something extraordinary.”  She was right. The history of Relief Society is filled with examples of ordinary women who have accomplished extraordinary things as they have exercised faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Relief Society was established to help prepare daughters of God for the blessings of eternal life. The purposes of Relief Society are to increase faith and personal righteousness, strengthen families and homes, and provide relief by seeking out and helping those in need. Women fulfill these purposes as they seek, receive, and act on personal revelation in their callings and in their personal lives.
