International Order of JOB'S Daughters is one of today's
outstanding character-building organizations for young women,
ages 10 - 20, who are related to a Master Mason.
Its activities provide
opportunities for young women to develop confidence, good
character, life-long friendships, moral and spiritual
values, and leadership abilities -- and to have a lot of fun
along the way.
JOB'S DAUGHTERS teaches
the time-tested principles of respect for parents and home,
loyalty to flag and country, and reverence for God.

Bethel Meetings are when the normal
business of all organizations is conducted (such as paying
bills, hearing reports of committees, receiving petitions
for membership), initiate new members, and have time for
talk and laughter. At such meetings members wear a white
Grecian-style robe, similar to that worn in the time of Job.
At activities outside of the
Bethel, members dress as other young women do, and spend
their time in cementing friendships, improving their
communities, and enjoying the fun of youth. All activities
are chaperoned for the safety and welfare of all.
Our charity, the Hearing
Impaired Kid's Endowment (The HIKE Fund), provides
hearing assistive devices for children in need. Our popular
"hikes for HIKE," provide a special charitable service to
our community. Our work with hearing-impaired children has
led many groups, called Bethels, to learn sign language. We
are proud to be "kids helping kids! "
Why are we called "Job's
book of Job, found in about
the middle of the Old
Testament of the Bible, is
more than a story of a man
with problems. It is the
story of all people who have
ever had difficulty
understanding the purposes
of God. Job wondered -- and
he never found the answer.
But Job did learn the
beautiful lesson that are
taught in Job's Daughters --
that if we remain steadfast
when our troubles come, and
maintain our faith in Him,
we will receive the gifts of
a just and loving God. And
finally, when Job's family
and peace are restored, we
are told that "in all the
land were no women found as
fair as the daughters of
Job." Job's Daughters also
try to learn how we, too,
may be found fair in the
sight of God.
emblem of the International Order of Job's
Daughters (also known as "Job's Daughters
International") is a double triangle, with three
women in the center (representing the three
daughters of Job - from the Book of Job in the
Bible).Along the bottom of the inner triangle
are the words "IYOB FILIAE."
Greek, "FILIAE" is Latin, together they mean
"Daughters of Job."
Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick
founded the International Order of Job's
Daughters in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1920, in honor
and memory of her mother, Elizabeth D. Wead.
The purpose of the Order is to band together
young women with Masonic relationship for
character building through moral and spiritual
development by teaching a greater reverence for
God and the Holy Scriptures; loyalty to the Flag
and the Country for which it stands, and respect
for parents and guardians.
Mrs. Mick, realizing
the importance of the early training she
received from her mother, and especially the
beautiful lessons in literature and drama found
in the Book of Job, decided to give her time and
talent to make it possible for all young women
of Masonic relationship to share the rare
privileges that were hers. After several years
of careful study and consideration with the
assistance of her husband, Dr. William H. Mick,
and other interested Master Masons and members
of the Eastern Star, she founded the
International Order of Job's Daughters. The
ritual work of the Order is based on the
Triangle, the Three Daughters of Job, the Open
Book, Education, and combines the emblematic
representation of Latin and ancient Greek ages.
