The Relief Society President as an Agent for Change
My friend Ellen posted this on her Facebook feed yesterday, along with the comment, “I’ve had this job 4 years today.” I love that she’s smiling in it, and that she’s used a style that’s best associated with the word “change.”
Maybe it isn’t what you’d expect from most ward Relief Society presidents. For me, the office conjures up a mental image of a conservative married woman in her sixties, someone who wears sensible shoes and insists on referring to everyone in the room as “Sister” in a syrupy voice.
Ellen isn’t any of those things (for one thing, she has excellent taste in shoes!), and I know the women in her ward see her as a leader and a compatriot.
So I have a few questions for you all: How can a Relief Society president be an agent for positive change within a ward? What’s the best thing you’ve ever seen a Relief Society president do?
