As sisters in Zion, we’ll all work together;The blessings of God on our labors we’ll seek.
We’ll build up his kingdom with earnest endeavor;
We’ll comfort the weary and strengthen the weak.
The errand of angels is given to women; And this is a gift that, as sisters, we claim:
To do whatsoever is gentle and human,
To cheer and to bless in humanity’s name.
How vast is our purpose, how broad is our mission, If we but fulfill it in spirit and deed.
Oh, naught but the Spirit’s divinest tuition
Can give us the wisdom to truly succeed.
"People in modern society are living longer than ever before, which is giving family members unprecedented opportunities to experience and enjoy extended family relationships. .... it is important for family members to work together and support each other. Despite the demands of care giving, this labor of love also brings significant blessings."
(Successful Marriages and Families: Proclamation Principles and Research Perspectives- Chapter 17)
We are all sister's in Zion, daughters of a Heavenly King; we were sent here for a great and marvelous purpose. But we were not sent here alone- we have each other. "it is important for family members to work together and support each other." As sisters in Zion we can help uplift and cheer each other on all along the way. When our sisters are sick and weary we can comfort them and serve them. When they are lost and afraid, we can dry their tears and hold their hand lighting their torches with ours. When they are excited and overcome with joy we can share their happiness. Just remember-
As sisters in Zion, we’ll all work together;
The blessings of God on our labors we’ll seek.
