Home should be a place of refuge and Christ-centered learning, women leaders of the Church said on social media this week.
In promotion of Domestic Violence Awareness month in the United States, the Facebook account of Sister Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society general president, shared a link to the new Church website, Abuse.lds.org, which was released on Oct. 25.
“I know that Jesus Christ can bring peace and healing from all injustices through His loving Atonement, which gives each of us the power to move forward,” the post read.
In a photo with her husband, reading from the Oct. 14 issue of the Church News, Sister Reyna I. Aburto, second counselor in the Relief Society general presidency, invited all to follow the prophet’s counsel and make homes the center of gospel study and learning. “By doing so,” her Oct. 22 Facebook post read, “the Spirit will dwell in our home and in our heart through the day.”
In light of the changes announced by President Russell M. Nelson during October’s general conference, Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, Young Women general president, is all in with serving Jesus Christ more faithfully.
According to an Oct. 21 Facebook post, Sister Cordon invited, “Let us not be strangers unto him, but faithful disciples who take every opportunity to learn of Him, listen to His words, and do His work.”
Several years ago, Sister Becky Craven’s family helped a village in Bolivia build a new water system. She and her family wept when they saw the joy on people’s faces the first time they had water delivered to them.
In an Oct. 25 Facebook post, Sister Craven, second counselor in the Young Women general presidency, remarked on the blessing of the waters of revelation continually flowing into our homes.
Sister Joy D. Jones shared an experience in October 2018 general conference when she and her husband learned the reason behind service of any kind. In a Facebook post on Oct. 23, she shared that she and her husband began to feel frustrated in serving one hard-to-reach family.
“When we began to ask ourselves why we were visiting the family and what our purpose was we received understanding and a change of heart.”
Sister Cristina B. Franco, second counselor in the Primary general presidency, also had the opportunity to also share a personal experience during October general conference. Sharing a photo of herself as a young girl, her Oct. 19 Facebook post reminded readers, “As we couple our service with love for our Heavenly Father and His children and are willing to sacrifice, that love is made sacred.”
