Holy places

“A holy place is where we feel safe, secure, loved, and comforted.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Standing in holy places and being in good company bring feelings of how it must have been in that home we left behind, the home that seems so far away at times.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Standing in holy places helps us to become holy, but that is an acquired virtue that takes practice. Practice listening to the Spirit and being obedient. Practice being morally pure. Practice being reverent about sacred things.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)

“There are things you can do to bring holiness to ordinary places: when you spend an afternoon with small children so a tired mother can rest, when you do the dishes for your brother even though it’s his turn, when you clean house for an elderly friend—these things bring feelings of selflessness and sacrifice and holiness.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Do whatever you have to do to be able to stand in holy places and be not moved, to stand for truth and righteousness, regardless of shallow enticements and evils and designs of conspiring people and media.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Invite the Lord to walk with you. Let Him be your companion all of your life, every day of your life, so you can return to that home you long for, the holiest place of all.” (Sharon G. Larsen, Young Women General Presidency, “Standing in Holy Places,” General Conference, April 2002)
