organization that built strong moral character in young women. With the help of leaders from Master Masons and Eastern Star,
she came up with the idea of building an organization for young women between the ages of 10 and 20 – integrating many
of the lessons she learned in Eastern Star.
Job's Daughters has developed
into a youth organization that has thousands of members in five countries: United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and the Philipenes.
International, state, and local Job's Daughters bodies help support various charities and local projects. Job's Daughters also has its own official charity, The Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment (H.I.K.E) Fund. Members
of Job’s Daughters have many opportunities to participate in fun activities, meet other young women from diverse backgrounds
and countries, and make many friends that last a lifetime.
