    "[The] Lecturer discusses LDS women 'who speak with power and authority of God' . ...
    Here is a sampling from the book. ... 'This organization [the Relief Society] is a portion of the holy priesthood.' ... Sarah M. Kimball spoke on a 'topic … of the highest benefit to womankind … the sense of spiritual understanding.'"

    The Prophet Joseph Smith created the Temple Endowment to reveal that both men and women are clothed in the robes of the Holy Priesthood. Although a "sense of spiritual understanding" is important for LDS women, the greater cause of the Relief Society was to cloth the naked, shelter the homeless, care for the sick and afflicted, and visit the imprisoned (mentally and physically).

    ONLY those women (and men) who devote their lives to this Great Cause, above, will find themselves on the Right Hand of Christ at the Last Day. (See Matt. 25.)
