In His Service - Lessons Learned in My Service as a Relief Society President

Lesson 5: His love is greater, deeper and sweeter than anything we can imagine

Before I got called to serve, I already felt love the women in my ward. In fact, I loved the whole ward in general. I do have an amazing ward. But once I recieved this assignment and had Priesthood hands laid upon my head to officially set me apart, the love grew immediately. I came in with my own love for these women in tact and I had the Savior's love added on to that.
I was priveleged to feel His love for the women served on so many many occasions. Once as I sat in the front of the Relief Society room and looked out upon these amazing women, I was completely overcome with this love. It took over and brought me to tears. I know those powerful feelings were the Lord telling me, "These are my precious daughters and I LOVE them."

I wouldn't trade that feeling for anything. NOTHING is sweeter than His love. Whenever I was on His errand, I felt that love in such powerful ways. If you ever question His love for you, just kneel down and ask Him. And serve Him. I promise that it is greater, deeper and sweeter than anything you can imagine. And you will never want to lose it. He LOVES His children.


  1. I have enjoyed reading all of your insights! You did a great job as our RS president. I wish, wish, wish you would have blogged all along the way...but I'm sure at the time you were TOO BUSY!!


  2. Thanks, Kim! I wish I would have blogged more too... if only as a way to save my own memories! It was definitely one of the greatest experiences I've ever had and I gained so much - in the way of friendship and love for so so many.. including you. Thanks for all of your support and kind words. I absolutely adore you and your family.
