Change

“What can we give to Him, who paid the incalculable price for our sins? We can give Him change. We can give Him our change. It may be a change of thought, a change in habit, or a change in the direction we are headed. In return for His priceless payment for each of us, the Lord asks us for a change of heart.” (Becky Craven, Young Women General Presidency, “Keep the Change,” General Conference, October 2020)

“Jesus Christ has given us a continuous pattern for change. He invites us to exercise faith in Him, which inspires us to repent—’which faith and repentance bringeth a change of heart.’ As we repent and turn our hearts to Him, we gain a greater desire to make and live sacred covenants. We endure to the end by continuing to apply these principles throughout our lives and inviting the Lord to change us. Enduring to the end means changing to the end.” (Becky Craven, Young Women General Presidency, “Keep the Change,” General Conference, October 2020)

“Through Jesus Christ, we are given the strength to make lasting changes. As we humbly turn to Him, He will increase our capacity to change.” (Becky Craven, Young Women General Presidency, “Keep the Change,” General Conference, October 2020)

“I love hiking in the mountains near my home. Often, I get a little rock in my shoe as I walk along the trail. Eventually, I stop and shake out my shoe. But it astounds me how long I allow myself to hike in pain before I stop and rid myself of the irritant. As we travel the covenant path, sometimes we pick up stones in our shoes in the form of poor habits, sins, or bad attitudes. The quicker we shake them from our lives, the more joyful our mortal journey will be.” (Becky Craven, Young Women General Presidency, “Keep the Change,” General Conference, October 2020)

“Because of Jesus Christ, we can change. We can adjust our habits, alter our thoughts, and refine our character to become more like Him. And with His help, we can keep the change.” (Becky Craven, Young Women General Presidency, “Keep the Change,” General Conference, October 2020)

“If we earnestly appeal to God, He takes us as we are–and makes us more than we ever imagined.” (Neill F. Marriott, Young Women General Presidency, “Yielding Our Hearts to God,” General Conference, October 2015)

“When we are yielded and still, our minds can be directed to something more we may need to change–something that is limiting our capacity to receive spiritual guidance or even healing and help.” (Neill F. Marriott, Young Women General Presidency, “Yielding Our Hearts to God,” General Conference, October 2015)
