For members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, General Conference is an exciting time of year, full of wisdom and revelation. Most of the Conference talks are by the men who lead the Church, but there are also a lot of wonderful General Conference talks by women. Being a woman, it can be nice to hear a woman’s point of view sometimes. These talks are all by women, for women.
It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone by Sheri Dew
“No marriage or family, no ward or stake is likely to reach its full potential until husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, men and women work together in unity of purpose.”
Sheri Dew gives an excellent analogy and example of how much more we are capable of when we have a spouse. Men and women have unique qualities and different strengths and weaknesses. That is why we need one another. Together, we are capable of much more. We mustn’t let Satan ruin the blessing of marriage.
Seeing More of Jesus Christ in Our Lives by Tracy Y. Browning
“The Savior invites us to see our lives through Him in order to see more of Him in our lives.”
Just as we rely on tools to get us through our day physically, such as glasses, medications, wheelchairs, or whatever it may be that we rely on, God has given us spiritual tools. A few of these tools are the scriptures, the Holy Ghost, the prophet and revelation, etc. These spiritual tools are just as important, if not more, for our eternal salvation.
Come Unto Christ and Don’t Come Alone by Bonnie H. Cordon
“The best way for you to improve the world is to prepare the world for Christ by inviting all to follow Him.”
Sister Cordon addresses the young women of the church as she speaks of the importance of children knowing who they are and what their purpose is. At different points in our lives, we all get distracted and forget about our purpose, but we can always recenter our focus.
We Are The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints by Reyna I. Aburto
“The Church is more than the buildings and the ecclesiastical structure; the Church is us, the members, with Christ at the head and the prophet as His mouthpiece.”
Heavenly Father works through us. He uses us to help one another. We are all one family, and there is nothing God likes more than when we can love and serve one another. We all play a crucial role in the restoration of the church and the gospel.
Essential Conversations by Joy D. Jones
“We cannot wait for conversion to simply happen to our children. Accidental conversion is not a principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
We must take the time to teach our children the gospel and essential values and morals while they are young and don’t become influenced by Satan yet. God trusts us to treat our children with love and respect, as well as teach them the things they need to know.
Beauty for Ashes: The Healing Path of Forgiveness by Kristin Yee
“To live in such a way that you give beauty for the ashes of your life is an act of faith that follows the Savior.”
Kristin Yee points out an incredible truth. Christ is the same person we can rely on to help us heal, as well as the person who suffered so that the people who have hurt us may be forgiven. We cannot accept one truth fully without accepting the other. This encourages us to forgive everyone.
Abiding in God and Repairing the Breach by Neill F. Marriott
“Christ has the power to bring us into loving fellowship with the Father and with one another.”
If we can trust Heavenly Father enough to abide in Him and walk with Him, he will bless us greatly. We can learn all there is to learn in this earthly life and experience much joy.
I Pray He’ll Use Us by Sharon Eubank
“Small efforts collectively make a big impact, magnifying the many individual things we do as disciples of Jesus Christ.”
We don’t realize just how easy it is to serve others. Even saying a prayer for someone is a form of service. And nothing makes Heavenly Father happier than when His children are serving and caring for one another.
Love Her Mother by Elaine S. Dalton
“How can a father raise a happy, well-adjusted daughter in today’s increasingly toxic world? The answer has been taught by the Lord’s prophets.”
What a simple yet powerful message! The most effective and remarkable way for a father to have a positive influence on his daughter is as simple as loving her mother as best he can. His daughter will follow that example and have high expectations for her future husband.
The Grave Has No Victory by Reina I. Aburto
“Through the redeeming Atonement and glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ, broken hearts can be healed, anguish can become peace, and distress can become hope.”
Grief is a normal human emotion. It’s natural to feel sorrow when a loved one dies. But the ultimate comfort we can acknowledge is the atonement. Because of Christ, our earthly goodbye is not forever. We will all return to our loved ones one day.
For Him by Joy D. Jones
“Knowing the who and the why in serving others helps us understand that the highest manifestation of love is devotion to God.”
Serving others isn’t only for their benefit. Being kind and serving Heavenly Father’s children is also something we do for Him. He appreciates us greatly when we care for His other children.
What I Hope My Granddaughters (and Grandsons) Will Understand About Relief Society by Julie B. Beck
“From the day the gospel began to be restored in this dispensation, the Lord has needed faithful women to participate as His disciples.”
There’s no denying that men and women are different, so naturally they have different roles in the church. However, we are all disciples of Jesus Christ. Christ needs us all to do His work during our lifetime.
United in Accomplishing God’s Work by Jean B. Bingham
“The most effective way to fulfill our divine potential is to work together, blessed by the power and authority of the priesthood.”
As individuals, there is only so much we can accomplish during our lifetime. But when we work together, joined by one purpose, to serve God, we can do God’s work on a much grander scale. Working together is the best way we can do Heavenly Father’s work.
