Just a good quote

Quotation of the day from Daughters In My Kingdom:

“Let them seek for wisdom instead of power and they will have all the power they have wisdom to exercise.” pg 45

๐Ÿ™‚ I need to read all of what Eliza Snow has written, and especially those minute books!

    That’s a good one! I haven’t seen that book yet, what do you think of it? I’ve read mixed reviews….

    I am loving it. I read mixed reviews too, most of them had one major complaint or another. But all the complaints I heard were not born out when I finally opened up my own copy. It’s fantastic! It’s exactly what Sis. Beck said it would be, over a year ago. It’s a way for current RS sisters to get a vision of what RS is, was, and can be. It’s putting us in dialoge with the early RS sisters like Eliza Snow. It’s got lots of quotations from Joseph Smith. And although it works through church history chapter by chapter, within each chater are quotations from 1830s, 1880s, 1930s, 1980, etc., all mixed together. The purpose is to teach the principles of Relief Society. Just like Sis. Beck said. Who knew she was actually serious about her description, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚ I had to laugh at myself, because I remembered her talk, then heard the reviews and was disappointed, and then when I finally opened the book it was just as she had said. Maybe I should trust her more than a few blogs, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚ It has lots of pictures, which gives it a sort of magazine-feel. It seems very “modern” to me, yet graceful and pretty. Rounded corners on the pages, stuff like that. I am surprised you haven’t gotten yours yet! In the meanwhile, it is online so you could start reading it there if you wanted. Let me know what you think too!

    I also blogged a bit about it here: https://whatimthinkingabout.wordpress.com/2011/10/15/where-are-the-women-theologians/ and added a few comments once I actually started reading it. ๐Ÿ™‚
