The Relief Society Magazine's content was quite varied. In it were spiritual messages, but also fiction and poetry that became a creative outlet for many LDS women. In addition, Relief Society lessons were published two and then three months in advance in the magazine. Waterstradt surveys some of the subjects for each of the different lessons: Theology, Work and Business (later called Work Meeting), Literary, and Social Service or Social Science. She is saddened that there is "no comparable voice for LDS women" today.
