About Product: The Prophet Joseph Smith organized the Relief Society in 1842, championed women, and gave them personal instruction at a time when women were barely acknowledged. Despite his own life being in turmoil, he made sure to give priority to the women of the Church. In this short booklet, Sheri Dew helps us understand what the Prophet Joseph would want us to know today: that women play a crucial role in the kingdom of God and that our divine capacity to understand things of the Spirit and the heart allow us to love, strengthen, and lift each other with charity.
