Gratitude

“May we show our gratitude and love for God by ministering with love to our eternal sisters and brothers.” (Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President, “Ministering as the Savior Does,” General Conference, April 2018)

“Sincere desires offered in a spirit of gratitude for abundant blessings and gratitude for the lessons of life instill in our hearts steadfast faith in Christ, a ‘brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men.'” (Carol F. McConkie, Young Women General Presidency, “The Soul’s Sincere Desire,” General Conference, October 2016)

“Gratitude is a Spirit-filled principle. It opens our minds to a universe permeated with the richness of a living God. Through it, we become spiritually aware of the wonder of the smallest things, which gladden our hearts with their messages of God’s love.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Recently Released Relief Society General President, “Gratitude: A Path to Happiness,” General Conference, April 2007)

“When we communicate gratitude, we can be filled with the Spirit and connected to those around us and the Lord.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Recently Released Relief Society General President, “Gratitude: A Path to Happiness,” General Conference, April 2007)

“As we pray and express gratitude to a loving but unseen Heavenly Father, we are also expressing our faith in Him. Gratitude is our sweet acknowledgment of the Lord’s hand in our lives; it is an expression of our faith.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Recently Released Relief Society General President, “Gratitude: A Path to Happiness,” General Conference, April 2007)

“The kind of gratitude that receives even tribulations with thanksgiving requires a broken heart and a contrite spirit, humility to accept that which we cannot change, willingness to turn everything over to the Lord—even when we do not understand, thankfulness for hidden opportunities yet to be revealed. Then comes a sense of peace.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Recently Released Relief Society General President, “Gratitude: A Path to Happiness,” General Conference, April 2007)
