Marriage

“The Lord’s pattern for couples and in large measure men and women serving together in His kingdom was established by our first parents. Together Adam and Eve labored, mourned, were obedient, had children, taught their posterity the gospel, called upon the name of the Lord, ‘heard the voice of the Lord,’ blessed the name of God, and dedicated themselves to God.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“Lift each other, and together you will be able to lift the beautiful burdens of mortality and have glory added upon your heads forever.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you will work together, equally yoked, under the guidance of the priesthood.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

Goodness

“Don’t dull the brightness of the spirit you came with from heaven. The Lord needs your goodness and your influence in this world.” (Margaret D. Nadauld, Young Women General President, “Hold High the Torch,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Being good makes you feel good, and it also makes others feel good!” (Margaret D. Nadauld, Young Women General President, “Hold High the Torch,” General Conference, April 2002)

“Life is so much less complicated when you are good.” (Margaret D. Nadauld, Young Women General President, “Hold High the Torch,” General Conference, April 2002)

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)

Fear

“Waves of fear can distract us, causing us to forget God’s goodness, thus leaving our perspective short-sighted and out of focus. Yet it is in these rough stretches of our journey that our faith can be not only tried but fortified.” (Lisa L. Harkness, Primary General Presidency, “Peace, Be Still” General Conference, October 2020)

Vision

“The Savior will help you see and understand the vision He has for you.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General Presidency, “Press Forward and Be Steadfast,” General Conference, April 2003)

“Your vision of your future will help you press forward. Take a few minutes to envision where you want to be in one year or two or five. Then take action to prepare yourselves. People don’t just run a marathon when they decide to do it. They must train daily, slowly building stamina and endurance to run the 26.2-mile distance. So it is with life. It is daily diligence with prayer and scripture study that will help you reach your goals. Your daily decisions will influence generations.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General Presidency, “Press Forward and Be Steadfast,” General Conference, April 2003)

Resentment

“A woman I know was struggling with anger toward someone who had hurt her and her family. Though she told her children not to become embittered and resentful, she fought those feelings herself. After weeks of entreating her Father in Heaven, she finally felt a change. She related: ‘One day, in the midst of my nearly constant prayers, the healing came. I felt a physical sensation spread through my body. After, I felt a sense of security and peace. I knew that regardless of what happened, my family and I would be all right. The anger left me and so did my desire for retaliation.’ The living water is the gospel of Jesus Christ; its communicator is the Holy Ghost. My friend knew what was right. She had said the appropriate words to her family. But only when she humbled herself enough to drink of the water—to feel the Holy Spirit—could she begin to heal.” (Kathleen H. Hughes, Relief Society General Presidency, “Blessed by Living Water,” General Conference, April 2003)

Gender roles

“Women do possess distinctive, divine gifts and are given unique responsibilities, but those are not more—or less—important than men’s gifts and responsibilities. All are designed and needed to bring about Heavenly Father’s divine plan to give each of His children the best opportunity to fulfill his or her divine potential.” (Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President, “United in Accomplishing God’s Work,” General Conference, April 2020)

Satan “would have us believe men and women are so alike that our unique gifts are not necessary, or so different we can never hope to understand each other. Neither is true.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“Neither man nor woman is perfect or complete without the other. Thus, no marriage or family, no ward or stake is likely to reach its full potential until husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, men and women work together in unity of purpose, respecting and relying upon each other’s strengths.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)

“If we are going to build the kingdom of God, we as men and women of God must build each other.” (Sheri L. Dew, Relief Society General Presidency, “It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone,” General Conference, October 2001)
