General Conference Quotes About Faith

Heavenly Father is all-knowing. And as soon as we accept that He will always know what’s best for us, we can trust in Him and have faith.
“Your faith will grow not by chance, but by choice.” – Neil L. Andersen
We have the power to choose with all things, showing our faith included. Heavenly Father will always allow us our free agency.
“The Lord will bless you with miracles if you believe in Him, “doubting nothing.” Do the spiritual work to seek miracles. Prayerfully ask God to help you exercise that kind of faith.” – Russell M. Nelson
Faith isn’t something that just happens. We have to choose it and practice it daily. It’s like a muscle, we must exercise it if we want it to grow.
“Life can be filled with faith, joy, happiness, hope, and love when we exercise the smallest amount of real faith in Christ- even a mustard seed of faith.” – M. Russell Ballard

General Conference Quotes About Joy
“When the focus of our lives is on Jesus Christ and His gospel, we can feel joy regardless of what is happening—or not happening—in our lives.” – Russell M. Nelson
Life on earth is not easy, nor is it meant to be. We are here to learn and grow, and that can be uncomfortable sometimes. But keeping Christ at the center of our lives is the key to experiencing joy even in the hardest phases of our lives.
“Keep it simple. It is in that simplicity that you will find the peace, joy, and happiness that I have been talking about.” – M. Russell Ballard
While life can be complicated at times, we can keep the simplicity by focusing on what’s most important and prioritizing this life. It’s a short life to be focused on material things that we won’t get to take with us after we die.
“The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.” – Russell M. Nelson
No matter what you’re going through, focusing on the gospel, Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, and what they say is important, will help us feel joy through the harder phases of life.
General Conference Quotes About Prayer
“Prayer is a gift from God. We need never feel lost or alone.” – Carol F. McConkie
Prayer is the simplest and most effective way to communicate with our Heavenly Father. He hears all of our prayers, and they are always answered even if we may not realize it.
“Heavenly Father hears your prayers, loves you, and He knows your name.” – Henry B. Erying
Sometimes it can feel like you’re just talking into an empty abyss, but Heavenly Father hears our every word, our every thought, and our every prayer. We are His children just as much as our children are ours.
“As you prayerfully study the Book of Mormon every day, you will make better decisions– every day.” – Russell M. Nelson
Scriptures are a powerful tool. They are our guidebook to get through life in the best possible way. They are the answers to our questions and the calm to our storm.
“Our Heavenly Father does answer prayers in His own time and in His own way.” – Thomas S. Monson
Sometimes we think our prayers don’t get answered, but that just isn’t true. Sometimes they are answered in another way that we might not realize, and sometimes our prayers are not answered right away.
“[God] accomplishes His miracles one prayer at a time, one person at a time.” – Jean A. Stevens
To us, it might seem impossible for Heavenly Father to truly hear every one of us, but His ways are higher than ours. What seems impossible is entirely possible for an all-powerful being.

General Conference Quotes About Kindness
“There is so much we do not know that our only sure reliance is to trust in the Lord and His love for His children.” – Dallin H. Oaks
We are unable to see the world as our Father in Heaven does. He is all-knowing and all-powerful. So we must trust Him. We must do what He asks us to do so we can obtain true joy and happiness in this life and the next.
“We aren’t always going to fit in with the world, but being different in positive ways can be a lifeline to other people who are struggling.” – Sharon Eubank
Not everyone has had the opportunity to know the gospel, or to recognize God’s hand in their lives. It’s our responsibility as members of the church to share all that we know with others, so they can feel God’s presence in their lives as well.
“The world is more hope-filled and joyful because of the inspired acts of kindness you perform.” – Bonnie H. Cordon
Each person plays a vital role in how our planet operates. Every good thing you do has a ripple effect, that is why it’s so important that we spend our days in this life doing good.
“Every person who has made covenants with God has promised to care about others and serve those in need.” – Russell M. Nelson
The most important work we can do during this lifetime is to care for one another. Whether it be our children and family, our friends, or complete strangers. Service is a powerful way to serve others and in turn, serve the Lord.
General Conference Quotes About Jesus Christ
“The teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, show us the way.” – Hugo E. Martinez
Our scriptures act as a guidebook for this life. We have the ultimate resource that tells us how we should live our life to achieve the most amount of joy possible during this life and the next.
“The plan of salvation and the gospel of Jesus Christ challenge us to become something.” – Dallin H. Oaks
This life is short, even if it doesn’t feel that way sometimes. We have to make the most out of our time here on earth, but do it in a way that doesn’t lose focus on what’s important.
“Look up to Christ for strength, balance, and healing.” – Yoon Hwan Choi
Christ is the ultimate example for us. If we do our best to strive to be as Christ-like as possible, we are sure to live a life full of joy.
“As we make Christ the center of our lives, our fears will be replaced by the courage of our convictions.” – Thomas S. Monson
Fear can be a debilitating thing. And the only cure to fear is faith. Exercising faith in Jesus Christ is the key to lessening our anxiety and our fears.
“Nothing invites the Spirit more than fixing your focus on Jesus Christ.” – Russell M. Nelson
We cannot feel the spirit when we surround ourselves with negative or un-christlike things. Making Christ the center of our lives and including Him in all things is the best way to ensure you feel the spirit.
General Conference Quotes About God, Our Heavenly Father
“Know that God sanctifies your most difficult days. ‘Fear thou not; for I am with thee,’ He peacefully reassures.” – Brian K. Taylor
Even on the hardest of days, or through the most difficult of trials, Heavenly Father never leaves our side. As soon as we realize and accept this, the hard times will become less hard as we feel His presence and support.
“Let God prevail.” – Russell M. Nelson
God will always prevail, good will always beat evil. Heavenly Father is the most powerful presence to ever exist. He is in control, and He will always prevail.
“God is with us in this heavenly quest.” – D. Todd Christofferson
No matter what goes on in our lives, Heavenly Father is always with us. He is rooting for us and supporting us in all things. He wants us to choose the right so we can live with eternal joy for the rest of our existence.
Other Great General Conference Quotes
“Each of us must stay in condition to respond to inspiration and the promptings of the Holy Ghost. The Lord has a way of pouring pure intelligence into our minds to prompt us, to guide us, to teach us, and to warn us. Each son or daughter of God can know the things they need to know instantly.” – Boyd K. Packer
The Holy Ghost is the key to knowing right from wrong, hearing God’s word, feeling God’s presence, and so much more. Allowing the Holy Ghost in our lives is key to keeping that spiritual connection to God that we all need to live a joyful life.
“Personal foundations… are usually built slowly–one layer, one experience, one challenge, one setback, and one success at a time.” – Quentin L. Cook
Each and every experience in our lives play a role in shaping us. Every good and bad thing that happens to us helps to form the person we will be. So the best thing we can do is to try to have positive, uplifting experiences as much as possible to ensure a good personal foundation.
“It is not so much about what we are going through in life but what we are becoming.” – Edward Dube
Our experiences have little to do with who we are. How we react and grow from those experiences is far more telling. We must use our experiences to shape who we are to become.
“Listening to, and hearkening to living prophets will have profound, even life-changing effects in our lives.” – Dean M Davies
How lucky are we to have been given a living prophet? A prophet serves as a middleman, to help us know what Heavenly Father wants us to know. It’s essential that we follow the advice of the prophet.
“Temple. One other word is equal in importance to a Latter-Day Saint. Home. Put the words holy temple and home together, and you have described the house of the Lord!” – Boyd K. Packer
While we may consider a temple and our home much different, it is true that the temple is a home – it’s the house of the Lord! And I truly believe this to be true, as confirmed by the warmth and home-like feeling the temple offers when you are there.
“Moments are the molecules that makeup eternity!” – Neal A. Maxwell
A moment may seem short and insignificant, but every moment matters. All of the many moments in our lives are what made us who we are. Never take even the smallest moments for granted.
