4 General Conference Quotes About Faith
“The Lord does not require perfect faith for us to have access to his perfect power. But He does ask us to believe.” – Russell M. Nelson
Life is full of trials, and sometimes it can be hard to keep our faith unwavering when things are hard. Our Heavenly Father is understanding, and he doesn’t expect perfection from us, just true effort!
“Every one of us can strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ.” – Rosemary M. Wixom
Faith is like a muscle. In order to grow it, we have to exercise it. You can grow your faith by focusing on gratitude, bearing your testimony, listening to others’ testimonies, listening to talks, reading scriptures, praying to Heavenly Father, and so much more!
“It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry… If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

“Receive more faith by doing something that requires more faith.”- Russell M. Nelson
Your faith may waiver, and sometimes it can feel like your faith is fading. But showing faith, even in small and seemingly insignificant ways, is a great way to grow your faith.

Every day is a new day. It’s up to us to live it to the fullest. Spending all of our days striving to be more like Christ, and making a life worth living.
“Greater happiness comes from greater personal holiness.” – Henry B. Eyring
Sometimes we think that material items will bring us happiness, but the truth is that true happiness has nothing to do with what we have. It has to do with our inner-selves, and who we truly are. Personal holiness will lead to happiness.
“We all search for happiness, and we all try to find our own ‘happily ever after,’… All you have to do is trust your Heavenly Father. Trust Him enough to follow His plan.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“What is said is not as important as what we hear and what we feel.” – Robert D. Hales

“We can, if we live worthy of it, have the blessing of the spirit to be with us, not only now and then but always.” – Henry B. Eyring

“Heavenly Father really does care and listen to and answer every child’s prayer.” – M. Joseph Brough

4 General Conference Quotes About Love
“With love as the motivation, miracles will happen.” – Jean B. Bingham

“As we learn to see others as the Lord sees them rather than with our own eyes, our love for them will grow, and so will our desire to help them.” – S. Mark Palmer
It can be hard to love and respect people who have done nothing but make our life harder. But if we can be forgiven and unconditionally loved by Heavenly Father, then everyone deserves that chance as well. No matter what they have done.

“The only opinion of us that matters is what our Heavenly Father thinks of us.” – Elder J. Devn Cornish

4 General Conference Quotes About the Temple
“If you don’t yet love to attend the temple, go more often—not less. Let the Lord, through His Spirit, teach and inspire you there. I promise you that over time, the temple will become a place of safety, solace, and revelation.” – Russell M. Nelson
Going to the temple is a sacred experience that not everyone has access to. We should strive to be in the temple as much as possible and feel the spirit that accompanies standing in holy places.

4 General Conference Quotes About Repentance
“Repentance is an essential part of God’s plan. Because all would sin in our mortal experience and be cut off from God’s presence, man could not be saved without repentance.” – Dallin H. Oaks
Repentance is not a punishment. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s an opportunity to correct the behaviors that would keep us from living eternally with our families in everlasting happiness. It’s a gift.
“Our ultimate quest in life is to prepare to meet our Maker. We do this by striving daily to become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ. And we do that as we repent daily and receive His cleansing, healing, and strengthening power.” – Russell M. Nelson
Life is merely a learning experience. There are things we would never be able to learn without living this earthly life. And living like Christ is the ultimate way to live our lives in a way that makes us worthy of eternal life.
“Being sin-resistant doesn’t mean being sinless, but it does imply being continually repentant, vigilant, and valiant.” – Joy D. Jones
Heavenly Father knows that it is impossible for humans to be perfect and not sin. That’s why He and His son Jesus Christ have given us the gift of repentance so that we may be forgiven and return to live with our Heavenly Father one day.
“Nothing is more liberating, more ennobling, or more crucial to our individual progression than is a regular, daily focus on repentance. Repentance is not an event; it is a process.” – Russell M. Nelson
Repentance is something that we have to do regularly. Not all sin is evil, illegal doings. Even speaking poorly about someone is a sin. So we must everyday remember to repent for our sins, and in turn we will often sin less.
4 Other Inspirational General Conference Quotes
“Take a private moment to reflect on your blessings, and then find ways to share them.” – Jean B. Bingham
When life gets busy, it can be hard to take time to reflect. But if we can take just a few minutes each day to express gratitude for our many blessings, we will live a much happier and more joyful life.
“Be a good example of what you believe.” – Robert D. Hales
