How did I get from the point of hating relief society to loving it?
Ok so i was one of those young women who did not want to go to Relief Society. I actually stayed in Young Womens until I was 19 haha. I used to dread going there with all the adults talking about kids, temple marriage, and all those grownup things that I didn't need to worry about yet. Since I have gotten married and have been in Relief Society though I love it. If I miss all of my other meetings I will still make it to Relief Society, and when the lessons are being taught I find them so helpful and strenghtening. I feel like i grow each time i go to Relief Society, and now this once upon a time nuisance has become a huge blessing! There are in fact only two things I dislike about Relief Society and that is 1) I sit all alone, and 2) Super Saturdays are apparently no more :( Can i just say that number two makes me more sad than number one? I think that Super Saturdays were the best! I am by no means a homemaker, and I don't consider myself a very creative person but on those Saturdays I felt like i was able to get into that mode and make all these creative things for my home. I hold out hope and I have faith though that my Heavenly Father will see my need and either bring back Super Saturdays to my ward or that he will provide another way for me to learn homemaking skills!
