Last Sunday our lesson was given by Sister Karina, she did an amazing job teaching. There was not a face in the room that I could see who had not felt the spirit. Her testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith was shared along with others as they felt prompted. A truly beautiful Sunday. Sister Liliane Dalton said that she had not been in Relief Society for so long and she was so thankful to be there, especially for that lesson.
We had family and friends visiting members in our ward and also Sister Lee down from Melbourne. The primary children came in for the last few minutes and sang a sweet Christmas Carol to end our meeting.
We are looking forward to Sister Angela who will be teaching us next Sunday.
Wishing you all Christmas Truffles,

Today's lesson was about the importance of family relationships and is available to read here. Brother Gary and Sister Pat did a little skit about husband and wife, this little act demonstrated jokingly how we might improve those relationships, it was pretty funny and we all got a little surprise.
Sister Pat helped us to remember that as part of a family we need to be aware of the needs of others not only ourselves. The most important relationships we have are found in our family and we can nurture these ties by spending time with those whom we really love, our family.
Thank you for teaching the lesson Sister Pat. Next week Sister Karina Thorne will be teaching for us.
We would like to thank the Sisters who have volunteered to cook meals for Danielle and Philip Loenneker. If you would like to cook a meal or are able to assist in any way please call Sister Robyn Smith and please remember the family in your prayers.
Thanks for checking in everyone. See you next Sunday... not long until Christmas now.
I almost forgot, the lesson manuals are available for next year. I will have them out next Sunday for Sisters to collect.

Last Sunday our lesson was given by Bishop Smith, he spoke about our testimonies and how they need to be constantly nourished and we should not become complacent in our worship. Through Prayer and regular meaningful Scripture Study we can preserve our faith. Bishop reminded us of his talk a while ago where he repeated six times, A testimony is when the heart tells us what the mind does not know. The talk by Elder Dale E. Renlend was used to illustrate this point. Please talk some time to read this talk by clicking here.

Each of us should apply that principle [of unselfish service] to our attitudes in attending church. Some say “I didn’t learn anything today” or “No one was friendly to me” or “I was offended” or “The Church is not filling my needs.” All those answers are self-centered, and all retard spiritual growth.
In contrast, a wise friend wrote:
“Years ago, I changed my attitude about going to church. No longer do I go to church for my sake, but to think of others. I make a point of saying hello to people who sit alone, to welcome visitors, … to volunteer for an assignment. …
“In short, I go to church each week with the intent of being active, not passive, and making a positive difference in people’s lives. Consequently, my attendance at Church meetings is so much more enjoyable and fulfilling.”
All of this illustrates the eternal principle that we are happier and more fulfilled when we act and serve for what we give, not for what we get.
Something to think about I reckon...
See you on Wednesday

Last Sunday our lesson was given by the Stake Relief Society Presidency, with a guest panel, President Prebble and Brother Dale. The lesson was taken from a talk given by Elder David Bednar, entitled, 'Things as they really are'.
This talk is worth a read and can be found on the church website by clicking here.
Larisa Richardson ended the lesson with her comment that life is all about balancing our time, we are all at different stages and we need to make careful judgement about how we best spend our time.
See you all on Saturday!
