Lillie T. Freeze, “The Fruits of Our Labor”

 “Let us cultivate more true modesty and less prudery. More sincere sisterly respect and charity for each other and indulge in less flattery, and let our daily intercourse at home and abroad be characteristic of pure nobility of soul.”


At the Pulpit features fifty-four talks given by Latter-day Saint women from 1831 to 2016, with selections from every decade since the founding of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the talks, women draw on inspiration and experience to explain and bear witness of their beliefs. In addition to being a scholarly history, this collection provides a resource for today’s Latter-day Saints as they study, speak, teach, and lead.

This website features selections from At the Pulpit, including the volume introduction and several discourses. The website also includes discourses not included in the print volume, photographs, a list of women who have spoken at the church’s general conferences, videos, and a chronology.
