Favorite Quotes From The LDS General Relief Society Meeting

We are so blessed as women! What a great way to start off the week of General Conference by being fed spiritually with the words of our church leaders at the General Relief Society Meeting on September 29, 2013. I'm looking forward to more uplifting words this coming weekend! In case you missed it, here are my favorite quotes:

"Let us remember the concept of good, better and best as we teach. It is good to teach our children about the temple. It is better to prepare and expect them to make and keep covenants. It is best to show them by example that we cheerfully cleave to our own baptismal and temple covenants."
- Linda K. Burton, President of the General Relief Society

"The Savior said, 'I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.' He can say that because he kept his covenants with love. The question then is, will we?"
- Linda K. Burton, President of the General Relief Society

"The Lord allows us to be tried and tested, sometimes to our maximum capacity. We have seen the lives of loved ones, and maybe our own, figuratively burned to the ground and have wondered why a loving and caring Heavenly Father would allow such things to happen? But he doesn't leave us in the ashes. He stands with open arms eagerly inviting us to come to him. He is building our lives into magnificent temples where His spirit can dwell eternally.”
- Linda S. Reeves, 2nd Counselor of the General Relief Society

"Many of the challenges we face exist because we live in this mortal world. Populated by all manner of individuals. At times we ask in desperation. How can I keep my sights firmly fixed on the celestial, as I navigate through this telestial world."
- Thomas S. Monson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

“My dear sisters, your Heavenly Father loves you. Each of you! That love never changes. It is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank account. It is not changed by your talents and abilities. It is simply there. It is there for you when you are sad, or happy. Discouraged or hopeful. God’s love is there for you whether or not you deserve love. It is simply, always there.”
- Thomas S. Monson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

“I promise you that you will one day stand aside and look at your difficult times, you will realize that He was always there beside you. I know this to be true in the passing of my eternal companion, Frances Beverly Johnson Monson.”
- Thomas S. Monson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

As President Monson continues to serve us, let us each resolve to serve him by being the hands that lift others. Have a great day!

My heart was touched to tears yet again, as I read those words. Bless you! The gospel is true !!
