And I am so fortunate to be surrounded by these incredible LDS women--good, humble, talented, spunky, thoughtful, spiritual, service-oriented women--who strengthen me with their example, their dedication to the gospel, and their concern for their fellow Relief Society sisters.

1. We meet in person.
2. We meet on the same day, at the same time, at the same place, every week. (We meet during the daytime to break up the day for us stay-home moms.)
3. We begin our book club meetings by watching the talk of the week together, and then we discuss. (That way, even if you don't have time to study the talk, you can still participate.)
4. When we are finished discussing the talk, we eat something together and feed our kids lunch. (The children bounce on our trampoline while we are discussing the talk.)
So far, it's been really uplifting and has renewed each of us who have participated! Today we had a going away party for one of our members, and had a potluck lunch. Fun! We actually had 14 women (plus their kids), but some of them weren't too keen on me sticking a camera in their face! (Imagine that!)
