Testimony

“Even though we may not have seen our Savior with our physical eyes, we can know that He lives. As we draw closer to Him, as we seek to receive a personal witness through the Holy Ghost of His divine mission, we will have a better understanding of our purpose; the love of God will dwell in our hearts; we will have the determination to be one in the kaleidoscopes of our families, wards, and communities; and we will minister to each other ‘in newer, better ways.'” (Reyna I. Aburto, Relief Society General Presidency, “With One Accord,” General Conference, April 2018)

“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)

“There are three areas I believe are foundational to strong testimonies and that I consider to be essential to our understanding. First, we need to acknowledge the centrality of God our Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, to our faith and salvation… Second, we need to understand the need for the restoration of the doctrine, organization, and keys of authority in these latter days… Third, we need to study and understand temple ordinances and covenants.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Rise Up In Strength, Sisters in Zion,” General Conference, October 2016)

“Children begin gaining their own testimonies by reading or listening to the scriptures, praying daily, and partaking of the sacrament in a meaningful way.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Rise Up In Strength, Sisters in Zion,” General Conference, October 2016)

“If you do not yet have a firmly rooted testimony and conviction that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God on the earth, now is the time to do what it takes to gain that conviction. To delay making the effort required to earn that kind of conviction can be dangerous to your soul.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Be Ye Converted,” General Conference, October 2013)

“Decide now to do all you can to fill your lamps, that your strong testimony and example may be woven into the lives of many generations–past, present, and future.” (Mary N. Cook, Young Women General Presidency, “When You Save a Girl, You Save Generations,” General Conference, April 2013)

“Because we have a strong testimony doesn’t mean it will always remain that way. We must nourish and strengthen it in order that it will have sufficient power to sustain us.” (Barbara Thompson, Relief Society General Presidency, “Personal Revelation and Testimony,” General Conference, October 2011)

“Did you know that your testimony has a powerful influence on your daughters? I knew my father had a testimony. I knew he loved the Lord. And because my father loved the Lord, I did too.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President, “Love Her Mother,” General Conference, October 2011)

“Through prayer and the confirmation of the Spirit, each of us can gain our own personal testimony of the living prophet. This testimony grows as we listen to, observe, and have the courage to apply his teachings in our daily lives.” (Ann M. Dibb, Young Women General President, “Be of a Good Courage,” General Conference, April 2010)

“When we stand as a witness of Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost will confirm that testimony.” (Susan W. Tanner, Recently Released Young Women General President, “Stand as a Witness,” General Conference, April 2008)

“As you sincerely seek to gain a testimony, the knowledge that will come through the Holy Ghost will assist you with your challenges, with questions, and with living the standards.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President, “At All Times, in All Things, and in All Places,” General Conference, April 2008)

“We are part of the true, restored gospel of Jesus Christ. We have a work to do. We serve in simple ways, our testimonies grow, and we are part of this day of miracles.” (Julie B. Beck, Young Women General Presidency, “A Work for Me to Do,” General Conference, April 2005)
