Read in November, 2011

I learned a lot of interesting things about the history of the RS and a lot of inspiring stories about sisters and presidents of the RS. It helped to understand some of the purposes/history behind visiting teaching and made me curious to know if the RS still teaches literacy courses to women/children. I didn't know that visiting teachers used to collect donations, that the RS was dissolved as the saints traveled west, and that for a time the RS was heavily involved in government welfare programs and [inter]national womens societies. This is a great resource that I will visit again and again and am so glad I've got a copy!
