Hello! I'm Georgia, I'm a member of the Relief Society, the women's organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At the moment I also happen to be president of this organization, within the congregation I attend; it's a big but rewarding responsibility. I love the women and families I work with and serve. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can do a better job.

I've had an idea tumbling around in my head for a while, and it feels like the right time to put it out there, and get some conversation started. The idea is all about challenges. I intend for this blog—which is not only for the women of my Relief Society group but also any friends who wish to join us in exploration—to be a clearinghouse for challenges aimed at growth and greater happiness. Many of the challenges which will be posted here will be quick and easy to accomplish. Others, like the first one, will invite deeper investment. I think both the one-offs and the longer-term projects have the potential to produce some great results.

Will all of the challenges be suitable for everyone? Hopefully so. You may find that your particular life circumstances will require you to use your imagination and make adaptations, but that's perfectly okay. There won't be any pop quizzes, grades, or homework checks. These experiments in joyful living are just for you, for us. And for goodness' sake!
