Practical Applications for Daughters in My Kingdom
This week, our ward Relief Society received our copies of the new book, Daughters in My Kingdom. I was so excited to see it finally passed out!
In the last two pages of the Winter 2011 issue, the Exponent II staff lists some applications for using DIMK next year–ways to create lessons using the book, valuable quotes and pictures, and as a model for encouraging Mormon women to write their own history.
We didn’t have room for this insert in our layout, but here’s some additional resources that we think would be helpful for delving deeper into topics that DIMK brings up:
A Few Mormon Women’s History Books
Mormon Enigma: Emma Hale Smith by Linda K. Newell and Valeen Tippetts Avery
Women of Covenant: the Story of Relief Society by Jill Mulvay Derr, Janath Russell Cannon, and Maureen Ursenbach Beecher
Sisters in Spirit: Mormon Women in Historical and Cultural Perspective edited by Maureen Ursenbach Beecher and Lavina Anderson
Mormon Sisters: Women in Early Utah edited by Claudia L. Bushman
Starfoxy wrote an excellent critique of the book here. And, Exponent II founding mother, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, gave an informal talk hosted by our friends at Sunstone with her thoughts on this book.
What are your plans for using this book? What are your ward’s or stake’s plans?
