Other Quotes about Faith


“Seek learning by faith. We learn by faith as we diligently gain spiritual knowledge through prayer, scripture study, and obedience and as we seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost, who testifies of all truth. If you do your part to gain knowledge, the Holy Ghost can enlighten your mind. As you strive to keep yourself worthy, the Holy Ghost will give direction and added light to your learning.”

Mary N. Cook, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency

“Gratitude is our sweet acknowledgment of the Lord’s hand in our lives; it is an expression of our faith.”

“Faith and all spiritual gifts are available to everyone who is willing to live for them. Many times we think just being a member of the Church will entitle us to all the Lord has promised. But each blessing requires obedience. The Lord declared, ‘When we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated’ (D&C 130:21). We gain strength by living the commandments.

“So if we desire to walk in the light of the Lord, we put one spiritual foot in front of the other. We follow the path of spiritual preparedness as it is set forth in scripture and by our living prophets. We take full fellowship in the Relief Society organization. This society, established and directed by our prophets through divine inspiration, is not just a Sunday meeting. It is an organization to bring sisters and their families unto Christ.”

Mary Ellen Smoot, Relief Society General President
Come, Let Us Walk in the Light of the Lord,” October 1998 General Conference


“As we gain experience in this demanding ‘real world,’ we sometimes fail to see the sacred nature of our seemingly routine daily tasks. Fundamentals of daily living—scripture reading, prayer, family home evening, the conversation at dinner—these provide the experiences that make faith a reality.”

Janette Hales Beckham, Young Women General President
Making Faith a Reality,” October 1997 General Conference


” We are all required to make journeys of faith. That is the gospel plan. Our path may not be crossing an ocean or walking alone from an empty train station. But whatever it is, it will demand faith in every footstep.”

Bonnie D. Parkin, Relief Society General President
“Finding Faith in Every Footstep,” April 1997 General Conference

Virginia H. Pearce, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Faith Is the Answer,” April 1994 General Conference


“When we bring that definition into everyday language, faith means that I really believe that:

• Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live, and they are in charge of this world.
• They know me.
• They love me.
• They have a plan for my future.
• I will obey the commandments, work hard, and trust in their plan. Sooner or later, everything will be okay.”

Virginia H. Pearce, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Faith Is the Answer,” April 1994 General Conference


“Testimonies abound in support of those who have provided extraordinary care as single parents. We are confident that the Lord is particularly mindful of such women and that, while their role is an unusually challenging one, they can succeed.

Barbara B. Smith, Relief Society General President
Her Children Arise Up, and Call Her Blessed,” April 1982 General Conference
