Unity and belonging

“Unity doesn’t magically happen; it takes work. It’s messy, sometimes uncomfortable, and happens gradually when we clear away the bad as fast as the good can grow.” (Sharon Eubank, Relief Society General Presidency, “By Union of Feeling We Obtain Power with God,” General Conference, October 2020)

“Unity is essential to the divine work we are privileged and called to do, but it doesn’t just happen. It takes effort and time to really counsel together—to listen to one another, understand others’ viewpoints, and share experiences—but the process results in more inspired decisions.” (Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President, “United in Accomplishing God’s Work,” General Conference, April 2020)

“You young women are vital in building unity. Be a light to those around you. Be the source of love and care you are hoping to receive from others. With a prayer in your heart, continue to reach out and be that force for good. As you do so, your life will be filled with kindness. You will have a better feeling toward others and will begin to see their goodness in return.” (Bonnie H. Cordon, Young Women General President, “Beloved Daughters,” General Conference, October 2019)

“In order to reach our sublime destiny, we need each other, and we need to be unified.” (Reyna I. Aburto, Relief Society General Presidency, “With One Accord,” General Conference, April 2018)

“Let us continue on our journey together in purpose, each of us with our own attributes and contributions, working to make this a more beautiful and fruitful world–one small step at a time and in harmony with God’s commandments.” (Reyna I. Aburto, Relief Society General Presidency, “With One Accord,” General Conference, April 2018)

“In spite of our differences, if we will share generously and honestly, our sisters will also share; we will know one another’s hearts, and belonging will flower like a garden.” (Bonnie D. Parkin, Relief Society General President, “Belonging Is Our Sacred Birthright,” General Conference, October 2004)

“As the kingdom of God rolls forth, we must unite our efforts in saving souls.” (Mary Ellen W. Smoot, recently released Relief Society General President, “Developing Inner Strength,” General Conference, April 2002)
