“There are many ways to build the kingdom of God as covenant-making, covenant-keeping disciples of Jesus Christ. As His faithful disciple, you can receive personal inspiration and revelation, consistent with His commandments, that is tailored to you.” (Michelle Craig, Young Women General Presidency, “Spiritual Capacity,” General Conference, October 2019)

“Do we miss or dismiss personal errands from the Lord because He has prepared ‘a way’ different from the one we expect?” (Michelle Craig, Young Women General Presidency, “Spiritual Capacity,” General Conference, October 2019)

“When you receive promptings and then act with intention, the Lord can use you. The more you act, the more familiar the voice of the Spirit becomes.” (Michelle Craig, Young Women General Presidency, “Spiritual Capacity,” General Conference, October 2019)

“The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life. … It requires a conscious effort.” (Julie Beck, quoted in Neill F. Marriott, Young Women General Presidency, “What Shall We Do?” General Conference, April 2016)

“The way to receive personal revelation is really quite clear. We need to desire to receive revelation, we must not harden our hearts, and then we need to ask in faith, truly believe that we will receive an answer, and then diligently keep the commandments of God. Following this pattern does not mean that every time we ask a question of God, the answer will immediately appear with every detail of what to do. However, it does mean that if we diligently keep the commandments and ask in faith, answers will come in the Lord’s own way and in His time.” (Barbara Thompson, Relief Society General Presidency, “Personal Revelation and Testimony,” General Conference, October 2011)

“Most often personal revelation will come as we study the scriptures, listen to and follow the counsel of prophets and other Church leaders, and seek to live faithful, righteous lives.” (Barbara Thompson, Relief Society General Presidency, “Personal Revelation and Testimony,” General Conference, October 2011)

“The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “And upon the Handmaids in Those Days Will I Pour Out My Spirit,” General Conference, April 2010)

“Because personal revelation is a constantly renewable source of strength, it is possible to feel bathed in help even during turbulent times.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “And upon the Handmaids in Those Days Will I Pour Out My Spirit,” General Conference, April 2010)

“Promised personal revelation comes when we ask for it, prepare for it, and go forward in faith, trusting that it will be poured out upon us.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “And upon the Handmaids in Those Days Will I Pour Out My Spirit,” General Conference, April 2010)

“Each bishop and Relief Society presidency have had hands laid on their heads to receive inspiration for their particular responsibilities and not for any other ward or group of Relief Society sisters.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Relief Society: A Sacred Work,” General Conference, October 2009)

“Without personal revelation, we cannot succeed. If we heed personal revelation, we cannot fail.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “Fulfilling the Purpose of Relief Society,” General Conference, October 2008)
