The Passing of the Torch

A passing of the torch occurred in General Conference Saturday afternoon. The General Relief Society Presidency consisting of Sister Julie B. Beck {center}, Sister Silvia H. Allred {left}, and Sister Barbara Thompson {right} was released after five years of service.

They served unselfishly, traveling around the world, visiting women of all nationalities, teaching, guiding, encouraging and strengthening us all. I'll be posting about the things I have learned from each one of them soon.

I am excited to get to know the new General Relief Society Presidency {pictured below}.

These are women called of God to lead us, guide us, and counsel us in the part we, as women, have in building up the kingdom of God. I look forward to hearing and learning from them! And will definitely be praying for them in their new responsibilities. It's not easy to represent about 6 million women from around the world!

To read short bios of these women visit this page and scroll towards the bottom of the article. Sister Reeves has 13 children!!
