It's purpose is to share information, unite the members, and help each sister to grow closer to Jesus Christ. This is NOT an official site of the LDS Church, and the opinions and statements are not representative of the church as a whole.

Presidency Message:

"The Christmas season is a time to celebrate the priceless gift of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His birth, which we commemorate during this season, is more than the symbol of a holiday.

This Christmas season will have greater meaning as we seek to follow His example and live His teachings."   Source: mormon.org
