General RS Broadcast

Hi Sisters,

We hope you were able to join our stake up in Waco to watch the RS Broadcast. We know you are all very busy, so if you weren't able to make it there, you can also watch it LIVE online here.

If you missed it on Saturday and still want to watch it, they will also have it on

Also check out the new book Daughters of Our Kingdom. A beautiful gift from our First Presidency about the history and work of Relief Society. If you still need a copy, find a member of the RS Presidency and we will get you one!

Relief Society Spotlight: Anna Flores

If Anna could describe herself in one word, it would be: HAPPY

Anna and her family recently moved here from Corpus Christi.

One of her biggest accomplishments is her family. She and her husband Noe have been married for 8 years and have two children, Nesi who is 7 and Rebekah is 5.

Something else Anna is proud of is getting her college degree in English. She's working to be certified to teach bi-lingual education which she should complete in about a month.

She hopes that someday we will be able to find her retired in Corpus Christi where she loves the weather, the people and that she would be close to family.

Anna would love to visit Switzerland someday, where she would hope to find out a little bit more about her family's roots.

If you want to get to Anna's heart, help her with the laundry... she always appreciates when her husband lends a hand and helps out around the house. OR... you could surprise her with her favorite food: pizza!

One interesting fact about Anna is that she likes to go to garage sales!

We are excited to have the whole Flores family in our ward!!!
