Burton, Relief Society General President, “Certain Women,” General Conference, April 2017)

Pingree, Relief Society General Presidency, “Choose Ye Therefore Christ the Lord,” General Conference, October 2003)

“Christ comes to all who are heavy laden; He gives us rest (see Matt. 11:28). He sustains us when we are weary. A wellspring is a flowing well, offering continual refreshment—if we drink of it. Pride can destroy its effects, as can mere inattention. But those who drink deeply not only become whole themselves, but they become a fountain to others, as one spirit nurtures and feeds another.” (Kathleen H. Hughes, Relief Society General Presidency, “Blessed by Living Water,” General Conference, April 2003)
