“As we seek Him and His Spirit to help us, we will see a miracle. We will recognize that our own hearts are changing and we too are becoming ‘submissive, meek, humble, patient, [and] full of love.’ We too will reflect the light of the gospel in our own countenance. We will come to understand these words of the Savior: ‘And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.’ ”

Margaret S. Lifferth, First Counselor, Primary General Presidency
Behold Your Little Ones,” October 2006 General Conference

“As you share your light, others will find greater light too. Is there anyone who needs your light as much as your families? I see you remarkable young women with your glowing countenances as the strength of the present and the hope of the future in your homes and in the Church.”

Susan W. Tanner, Young Women General President
I Am the Light Which Ye Shall Hold Up,” April 2006 General Conference

“The light in your countenance comes because you have made and kept covenants with our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, and you have made choices which qualify you to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
It Shows in Your Face,” April 2006 General Conference

“Charity, or the pure love of Christ, ‘envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own’ (Moroni 7:45). When we become other-oriented, or selfless, we develop an inner beauty of spirit that glows in our outward appearance. This is how we make ourselves in the Lord’s image rather than the world’s and receive His image in our countenances. President Hinckley spoke of this very kind of beauty that comes as we learn to respect body, mind, and spirit.”

Susan W. Tanner, Young Women General President
The Sanctity of the Body,” October 2005 General Conference
