Ruth Waite

Like many women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have participated in the Primary, Young Women and Relief Society organizations of the Church all of my life. I have been privileged to teach many lessons in each of them. I have been asked to give talks in different wards and stakes. I have written motivational plays and skits for in-service lessons and socials. For more than ten years I helped the members of my ward and stake do humanitarian work. For many years now my husband and I have participated in doing Family History and helping others do theirs.

I have found that people get more from talks or lessons when real life scenarios are used to discuss a principle so many of my writings include events that happened to me and my family.

I want my children and grandchildren to remember that I tried to be a faithful member of the Church so I am putting some of my writings here on this page in case they might help.
