“We’re all at different places on the path. But we can work together to help each other ‘press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of  hope, and a love of God and of all men.’ ”

“What will help you to press forward and continually hold fast to the iron rod? Center your life on the Savior and develop daily habits of righteous living.

“Come to know the Savior and all He has done for you. I find it interesting that when this last group arrived at the tree of life, they fell down. They were humble. They realized that they could not have arrived without the Savior’s help.

“Remember, it is the cleansing power of the Atonement that makes it possible for us to be virtuous.”

Mary N. Cook, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency

“We need to know that He sees the good in us. Feeling His love encourages us to press forward, reassures us that we are His, and confirms to us that He cherishes us even when we stumble and experience temporary setbacks.”

“…in this ongoing process of growing up unto the Lord, we will be asked to do all we can, in some cases, even more than we know how to do. The challenges may be formidable and the route sometimes unknown. But inevitable wrong turns notwithstanding, those who strive to be truly Christlike—with steadfast determination to serve others and a willingness to press forward in faith—can come to echo this grand spiritual truth shared by Nephi as he continued his shipbuilding: ‘And I … did … pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things.’ To be shown ‘great things’—what a gift, what a blessing to those who have chosen ‘to grow up unto the Lord.’ ”

Anne C. Pingree, Second Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
To Grow Up unto the Lord,” April 2006 General Conference

“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, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Press Forward and Be Steadfast,” April 2003 General Conference

“As you read the scriptures, you will come to know that the Savior is not only the light and life of the world; He is our one bright hope. Through Him you can have the hope of returning to live with your Father in Heaven. Through Him you can repent and overcome the things that will keep you from being steadfast. Through Him you can find the strength and courage to press forward even when the winds of resistance blow.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Press Forward and Be Steadfast,” April 2003 General Conference

“You can press forward with vision. The Holy Ghost will help you remain steadfast, and your testimony of the Savior will help you proceed with a perfect brightness of hope. There may be some steep hills ahead, but our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has promised to climb with you every step of the way. There has never been a more important time to press forward and be steadfast.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency

“I ask you to press forward with me in the quest for unparalleled levels of personal spirituality. Let us seek keener vision and stronger hearts.
