Book Club

Book Club this Thursday (Sorry, this is from a couple of Thursdays ago. Ari :) was uplifting as we listened to comments on books that had been read.

Book Club for October will be on October 13 – second Thursday at Niemann’s, 132 1st Avenue, at 7:00. Parking is available in the driveway and across the road.

The book for this month is Daughters in My Kingdom – The History and Work of Relief Society, published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Forward is a Message from the First Presidency encouraging the Sisters to study this book. And..don’t skip the Preface—it gives you a desire to read the complete book.

The books are a gift from the First Presidency and the Relief Society and were handed out at Relief Society last Sunday. If you do not have one, ask Sister Gibbs or come by my house where she left twelve of them.

I am on Chapter 6 now (with my red pencil in hand) and have learned many things and read about activities in which I participated—which was a surprise to me. The reading is inspiring, it gives knowledge about Relief Society that I didn’t know and some are thoughts I will never forget. One is: A sister who had been through World War 11 in East Germany was asked how she kept a testimony during all these trials. She said, “I didn’t keep a testimony through those times—my testimony kept me.”

Even if you can’t come share with us, read the book and enjoy the history and testimonies of Relief Society. Ila Marie Niemann
