“God wants us to be one. God needs us to be one—covenant-keeping daughters, united in the diversities of our individual lives, who desire to learn all that is needed to be back in His presence, sealed to Him as part of His eternal family.”

Carole M. Stephens, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
The Family is of God,” April 2015 General Conference


“We do not always understand the reasons behind the tests that come with mortality. But our faith has grown, and perhaps yours has too, as we have watched loved ones, friends, and people we know only by reputation endure with faith in the Lord the most severe trials. They, too, know the God of miracles and witness in their extremity that whatever the future holds for them, the Lord knows them and loves them and is blessing them. They are sealed to Him and to each other forever, and they are willing to submit their wills to His.”

Sydney S. Reynolds, Second Counselor, Primary General Presidency
A God of Miracles,” April 2001 General Conference


“…May each one of us resolve that nothing come between us and the Spirit of the Lord. May we recommit to stretch ourselves spiritually and to work a little harder at seeking the inspiration of heaven to guide our lives. It is the Holy Ghost who leads us to the Lord, who binds us to Him, and who irrevocably seals our testimony of Him.”

Sheri L. Dew, Second Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
We Are Not Alone,” October 1998 General Conference


“Each of us can be directed and blessed in our eternal progression by receiving these blessings. The ordinances, covenants, sealings, and the gift of the Holy Ghost are essential for exaltation. There are a host of individual priesthood blessings as well. Priesthood blessings give us direction, they lift our sights, they encourage and inspire us; they prompt our commitment. We can all be partakers of these spiritual blessings.”

Elaine L. Jack, Relief Society General President
Partakers of the Glories,” October 1996 General Conference


“Through the years, my circumstances have changed. I was a single woman, then the wife of a nonmember, then a partner in a temple sealing, a mother, a mother-in-law and grandmother, and now a widow. I have known the Savior’s love in all of these circumstances. My own faith has been rewarded as I have felt the Savior’s presence and power in my home.”

Chieko N. Okazaki, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
Strength in the Savior,” October 1993 General Conference
