Conversion

“We all need to seek to have our hearts and very natures changed so that we no longer have a desire to follow the ways of the world but to please God.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Do I Believe?” General Conference, April 2016)

“True conversion is a process that takes place over a period of time and involves a willingness to exercise faith. It comes when we search the scriptures instead of the Internet. It comes when we are obedient to the commandments of God. Conversion comes when we serve those around us. It comes from earnest prayer, regular temple attendance, and faithful fulfillment of our God-given responsibilities. It takes consistency and daily effort.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Do I Believe?” General Conference, April 2016)

“A person who has experienced true conversion draws upon the power of the Atonement and receives salvation for his or her own soul, then reaches out to exert a powerful influence upon all those who know him or her.” (Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, “Be Ye Converted,” General Conference, October 2013)

“As members, we are followers of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Such conversion and confidence is the result of diligent and deliberate effort. It is individual. It is the process of a lifetime.” (Ann M. Dibb, Young Women General Presidency, “I Know It. I Live It. I Love It.” General Conference, October 2012)

“There is only one way to become personally converted. It is through a witness of the Spirit as we study these very scriptures that testify of Jesus Christ. It comes as we pray and as we fast. It comes only when we have a deep desire to know the truth.” (Cheryl C. Lant, Primary General President, “Righteous Traditions,” General Conference, April 2008)

“When we are truly converted, our focus shifts from self to others. We can find inner strength through service.” (Mary Ellen W. Smoot, recently released Relief Society General President, “Developing Inner Strength,” General Conference, April 2002)
