“…Covenant keeping is one way to express our love for the incomprehensible, infinite Atonement of our Savior and Redeemer and the perfect love of our Father in Heaven.”

Linda K. Burton, Relief Society General President
The Power, Joy, and Love of Covenant Keeping,” October 2013 General Conference

“As a Relief Society presidency, we sometimes hear women say that they don’t feel the love of the Lord. But perhaps they would feel more of His love if they looked for His hand in the actions of those who care for them. It may be a member of their branch or ward, a neighbor, or even a stranger who blesses them and manifests Christ’s love…If we can lift others in Christ’s name, surely we can also be lifted.”

Kathleen H. Hughes, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
What Greater Goodness Can We Know: Christlike Friends,” April 2005 General Conference

“A woman of faith loves the Lord. She wants Him to know it by the life she lives, by the words she speaks, by the service she renders to His children, by her every action. She knows that He loves her even though she is imperfect and still trying to be better. She knows that when she does her very best, that it is enough…”

Margaret D. Nadauld, Young Woman General President
A Woman of Faith,” October 2002 General Conference

“How is our relationship with our Heavenly Father? Do we love Him with all our heart, might, mind, and strength? How well do we love our families, our neighbors, our Relief Society sisters, our fellowman? These questions help us recognize the things that matter most and serve as a template upon which we can place the activities of our days to see how we measure up.”

Mary Ellen Smoot, Relief Society General President
Steadfast and Immovable,” October 2001 General Conference

“…In standing as a witness at all times, we promise to love the Lord, to honor Him all the time—daytime and nighttime, summer and winter, good times and bad times—love the Lord and let that love show by the way we live. We also take time to thank Him, take time to ask for help, take time to seek guidance, and then take time to listen. Take time for that still, small voice which will whisper to us, help us, and give us courage.”

Margaret D. Nadauld, Young Women General President
Stand as a Witness,” April 2000 General Conference

“Charity is work of the heart. The Savior said that ‘the great commandment in the law’ is ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind’. When we love the Lord with all our mind, soul, and heart, we love others. And charity abounds.”

Elaine L. Jack, Relief Society General President
Strengthened in Charity,” October 1996 General Conference

“When first we love the Lord with all our hearts, then we can lead our children to Him in all of our interactions. They will grow in their devotion to the Lord as they see our devotion to Him. They will understand the power of prayer as they hear us pray to a loving Heavenly Father who is there listening and answering our prayers. They will understand faith as they see us live by faith. And they will learn the power of love by the kind and respectful ways that we relate to them. We cannot teach truth to our children apart from the trusting, caring relationships that we have with them.”

Anne G. Wirthlin, First Counselor, Primary General Presidency
Touch the Hearts of the Children,” October 1995 General Conference
