Self-worth

“We can choose to walk the higher path that leads us to seek for God and His peace and grace, or we can listen to Satan, who bombards us with messages that we will never be enough: rich enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, anything enough. Our discontent can become divine–or destructive.” (Michelle D. Craig, Young Women General Presidency, “Divine Discontent,” General Conference, October 2018)

“Each person has something important to contribute and has unique talents and abilities that help move this important work along.” (Bonnie L Oscarson, former Young Women General President, “Young Women in the Work,” General Conference, April 2018)

“One of the best ways to increase feelings of self-worth is to show, through our concern and service to others, that we have much of worth to contribute.” (Bonnie L Oscarson, former Young Women General President, “Young Women in the Work,” General Conference, April 2018)

“Let me point out the need to differentiate between two critical words: worth and worthiness. They are not the same. Spiritual worth means to value ourselves the way Heavenly Father values us, not as the world values us. Our worth was determined before we ever came to this earth. “God’s love is infinite and it will endure forever.” On the other hand, worthiness is achieved through obedience. If we sin, we are less worthy, but we are never worth less!” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “Value Beyond Measure,” General Conference, October 2017)

“When we have virtuous thoughts, He will bless us with confidence, even the confidence to know who we really are.” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “Value Beyond Measure,” General Conference, October 2017)

“We may seldom, if ever, receive huge spiritual manifestations in our lives; but we can frequently savor the sweet whisperings of the Holy Ghost verifying the truth of our spiritual worth.” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “Value Beyond Measure,” General Conference, October 2017)

“If the love we feel for the Savior and what He did for us is greater than the energy we give to weaknesses, self-doubts, or bad habits, then He will help us overcome the things which cause suffering in our lives. He saves us from ourselves.” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “Value Beyond Measure,” General Conference, October 2017)

“If we choose to focus on our negative thoughts and doubt our worth instead of clinging to the Savior, it becomes more difficult to feel the impressions of the Holy Ghost.” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “Value Beyond Measure,” General Conference, October 2017)

“The first child of God we must build up in the restored gospel is ourselves.” (Neill F. Marriott, Young Women General Presidency, “What Shall We Do?” General Conference, April 2016)

“Our divine nature has nothing to do with our personal accomplishments, the status we achieve, the number of marathons we run, or our popularity and self-esteem. Our divine nature comes from God. It was established in an existence that preceded our birth and will continue on into eternity.” (Rosemary M. Wixom, Primary General President, “Discovering the Divinity Within,” General Conference, October 2015)

“Once we begin to see the divinity in ourselves, we can see it in others.” (Rosemary M. Wixom, Primary General President, “Discovering the Divinity Within,” General Conference, October 2015)
