Example of Jesus Christ


“Our Savior has ‘marked the path and led the way.’ I testify that as we follow His example, love God, and serve one another with kindness and compassion, we may stand in purity, ‘blameless before God at the last day.’ We choose to serve the Lord in His righteous cause that we may become one with the Father and the Son.”

Carol F. McConkie, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency

“As we partake of the sacrament, we witness to God that we will remember His Son always, not just during the brief sacrament ordinance. This means that we will constantly look to the Savior’s example and teachings to guide our thoughts, our choices, and our acts.”

Cheryl A. Esplin, Second Counselor, Primary General Presidency

“As members of the Church, we may sometimes feel that we need to be part of a ‘perfect LDS family’ in order to be accepted by the Lord. We often feel ‘less-than’ or like misfits in the kingdom if we feel we do not fit that picture. Dear sisters, when all is said and done, what will matter to our Father in Heaven will be how well we have kept our covenants and how much we have tried to follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ.”

Linda S. Reeves, Second Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency

“For some, serving or ministering one by one, following the Savior’s example, doesn’t come easily. But with practice, each of us can become more like the Savior as we serve God’s children. To help us better love one another, I would like to suggest four words to remember: ‘First observe, then serve.’ ”

Linda K. Burton, Relief Society General President
First Observe, Then Serve,” October 2012 General Conference


“I testify that a return to virtue is possible because of the Savior’s example and the ‘infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice.’ I testify that we will be enabled and strengthened not only to do hard things but to do all things. Now is the time for each of us to arise and unfurl a banner to the world calling for a return to virtue. May we so live that we can be instruments in preparing the earth for His Second Coming, ‘that when he shall appear we shall be like him,… purified even as he is pure.’ ”

Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President
A Return to Virtue,” October 2008 General Conference


“The Savior is our leader and exemplar, our rock, our strength, and our advocate. Any part I can play in helping Him and His ordained prophet is a blessing in my life.”

Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President
What Latter-day Saint Women Do Best: Stand Strong and Immovable,” October 2007 General Conference


“Every day is a new opportunity to remember our Savior and follow His example. Without repenting, we cannot progress. That is why repentance is the second principle of the gospel.

“Instead of making excuses for a weakness, we work each day to develop good habits and Christlike qualities.”

Julie B. Beck, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Remembering, Repenting, and Changing,” April 2007 General Conference


“How do we teach our children? We can follow the example of the Savior. In the Book of Mormon we read of the resurrected Savior’s appearance to those in the Western Hemisphere. While teaching the people, He gathered the children to Him. He knelt and prayed with the children and for them. He blessed the children one by one. He felt the joy of their presence and opened the heavens that the children might be taught from on high.”

Coleen K. Menlove, Primary General President
All Thy Children Shall Be Taught,” April 2005 General Conference


“As you include children at your family dinner table, as you involve them in daily family prayer and scripture study and in family home evening, you are following the example of the Savior by loving and teaching them. As you do this, let them know that together your family is striving to keep the commandments and to be worthy to be an eternal family. It may be during the informal one-on-one times that the Spirit will prompt us to ask just the right questions or to say just the right thing to help our children know and feel the light of the Lord. If we make the opportunities, the Spirit will guide us.”

Coleen K. Menlove, Primary General President
All Thy Children Shall Be Taught,” April 2005 General Conference


“As in all things, the Savior set the example for us in how we should love and teach our children. When He appeared to the Nephites on this hemisphere, the scriptures tell us that as He spoke to the people, ‘he wept, … and he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.’ ”

Coleen K. Menlove, Primary General President

“I, too, have experienced what Paul taught when he said, ‘The Spirit beareth witness that we are children of God.’

“When you have that witness, then you know that you are part of God’s family, that Jesus Christ is your elder brother, and that you’ve inherited the characteristics of love, forgiveness, patience, service, tolerance, obedience. Christ is our example. If you wonder about other traits you have inherited, your patriarchal blessing will help you discover individual qualities.”

Elaine L. Jack, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
