“Each of us needs to be better at articulating the reasons for our faith. How do you feel about Jesus Christ? Why do you stay in the Church? Why do you believe the Book of Mormon is scripture? Where do you get your peace? Why does it matter that the prophet has something to say in 2017? How do you know he is a real prophet? Use your voice and your power to articulate what you know and feel–on social media, in quiet conversations with your friends, when you’re chatting with your grandchildren.” (Sharon Eubank, Relief Society General Presidency, “Turn On Your Light,” General Conference, October 2017)

“We will have to do our best to hold on to whatever light and truth we currently have, especially in difficult circumstances.

Esplin, Primary General Presidency, “Filling Our Homes with Light and Truth,” General Conference, April 2015)

Pingree, Relief Society General Presidency, “Seeing the Promises Afar Off,” General Conference, October 2003)

“A woman of faith loves the Lord. She wants Him to know it by the life she lives, by the words she speaks, by the service she renders to His children, by her every action.
