Repentance

“Being sin-resistant doesn’t mean being sinless, but it does imply being continually repentant, vigilant, and valiant.” (Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, “A Sin-Resistant Generation,” General Conference, April 2017)

“To me, the greatest miracles in life are not the parting of the Red Sea, the moving of mountains, or even the healing of the body. The greatest miracle happens when we humbly approach our Father in Heaven in prayer, fervently plead to be forgiven, and then are cleansed of those sins through the atoning sacrifice of our Savior.” (Linda S. Reeves, Relief Society General Presidency, “The Great Plan of Redemption,” General Conference, October 2016)

“To shine with the beauty of holiness, to stand with the Savior, and to bless others, we must be clean.” (Carol F. McConkie, Young Women General Presidency, “Here to Serve a Righteous Cause,” General Conference, October 2015)

“The easiest, quickest path to happiness and peace is to repent and change as soon as we can.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Remembering, Repenting, and Changing,” General Conference, April 2007)

“It is not possible to make real change all by ourselves. Our own willpower and our own good intentions are not enough. When we make mistakes or choose poorly, we must have the help of our Savior to get back on track.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Remembering, Repenting, and Changing,” General Conference, April 2007)

“The joy and peace we receive when we know we have been forgiven is a divine blessing. That peace comes in the Lord’s time and in His way, but it does come.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Remembering, Repenting, and Changing,” General Conference, April 2007)

“Because we are all mortal, we all make mistakes. Repentance is not optional, but we don’t do it alone. We have a Savior to help us repent. By developing His qualities in our lives, we know we are making changes that help us come closer to Him.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Remembering, Repenting, and Changing,” General Conference, April 2007)

“Repentance is like a giant eraser, and it can erase permanent ink! It is not easy, but it is possible.” (Julie B. Beck, Young Women General Presidency, “You Have a Noble Birthright,” General Conference, April 2006)
