“As we consider the ‘pressing calls’ of those who need our help, let’s ask ourselves, ‘What if their story were my story?’ May we then seek inspiration, act on impressions we receive, and reach out in unity to help those in need as we are able and inspired to do so. Perhaps then it might be said of us, as the Savior said of a loving sister who ministered to Him: ‘She hath wrought a good work. … She hath done what she could.’ I call that extraordinary!”

“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.”

“We know from the scriptures that ‘it is not good that … man should be alone.’ That is why our Heavenly Father made ‘an help meet for him.’ The phrase help meet means ‘a helper suited to, worthy of, or corresponding to him.’ For example, our two hands are similar to each other but not exactly the same. In fact, they are exact opposites, but they complement each other and are suited to each other. Working together, they are stronger.”

“In a chapter about families, the Church handbook contains this statement: ‘The nature of male and female spirits is such that they complete each other.’ Please note that it does not say ‘compete with each other’ but ‘complete each other’! We are here to help, lift, and rejoice with each other as we try to become our very best selves. Sister Barbara B. Smith wisely taught, ‘There is so much more of happiness to be had when we can rejoice in another’s successes and not just in our own.’ When we seek to ‘complete’ rather than ‘compete,’ it is so much easier to cheer each other on!”

“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

“As you gather together in your family, you can do so much to invite a spirit of unity. When was the last time you put your arms around your mom or dad and thanked them for all they do? Parents do most of the nurturing, but they need to be nurtured too.”

“…There is no end to the good works of righteous men and women who respect each other and who thrust in their sickles and reap, side by side, in the Lord’s vineyard. If we are going to build the kingdom of God, we as men and women of God must build each other. There is no challenge—with activation, retention, families, or anything—that we can’t solve when we counsel together in councils and help each other lift the load.”

Sheri L. Dew, Second Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
It Is Not Good For Man or Woman to Be Alone,” October 2001 General Conference

“Recent devastating events in the United States seem to indicate difficult days ahead. But they are days that will be filled with confidence and courage if the men and women of your generation unite in righteousness as never before. There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you will work together, equally yoked, under the guidance of the priesthood.”

“Unity of purpose, thought, and feeling are exalting qualities. When we can put aside our differences and value each others’ strengths, great things happen. The Prophet Joseph Smith admonished, ‘Don’t be limited in your views with regard to your neighbor’s virtue. … You must enlarge your souls towards each other.’ Such generosity of spirit invites greater unity.”

“We are all at different points on our journey back to our Father in Heaven. Did the Jews and Greeks whom Paul addressed in his epistle to the Galatians stop being Jews and Greeks when they were baptized? Did the men stop being men and the women stop being women? No. But they had all ‘been baptized into Christ’ and had ‘put on Christ’ (Gal. 3:27).”

These are the principles of the gospel.”
