For me, Daughters in My Kingdom is many things... It is a resource first and foremost, an introduction to Relief Society, a compilation of personal accounts/stories, a testimony, a lesson manual (although I know we're not supposed to refer to it as such) -- it's magazine-like in parts, historical at times, inspirational, as well as instructive. I could go on.... Ultimately, to me, it is truly a gift!
You can read my entire post here: Initial Impressions of Daughters in My Kingdom.
By now, sisters in the Mormon Church either have a copy, or have the ability to read it, online, at the new Daughters in My Kingdom website HERE.
"Daughters in My Kingdom: The History and Work of Relief Society has been written for you. We hope you unwrap it, we hope you open it, we hope you read it. This gift is a record of the legacy of women in the Church. It also tells about how Relief Society is truly the restoration of an eternal pattern of discipleship. It is a witness of the divine identity of our Heavenly Father's daughters. Daughters in My Kingdom contains inspiring examples and timeless truths, and we hope you have a profound personal experience with it." ~ Julie B. Beck
