  1. “The divine nature within each one of us is refined and magnified by the effort we make to draw nearer to our Father and His Son.”
  2. “Our divine nature has nothing to do with our personal accomplishments, the status we achieve, the number of marathons we’ve run or our popularity and self-esteem. Our divine nature comes from God. It was established in an existence that proceeded our birth and will continue on into eternity.”
  3. “As we understand who we are, daughters of God, we begin to feel those precious promises.”
  4. “We’re able to take our validation vertically from Him, not horizontally from the world around us.”
  5. “That future, a day at a time, comes alive when you do more than just exist. It comes alive when you live your life to feel the measure of your creation.”
  6. “Once we begin to see the divinity in ourselves, we can see it in others.”

    Linda S. Reeves

  7. “I know of nothing that will qualify us for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost as much as virtue.”
  8. “Understandably, many have expressed that our Father’s promised blessings are just way too far away, particularly when our lives are overflowing with challenges. But Amulek taught that this life is the time to prepare to meet God. It is not the time to receive all of our blessings.”
  9. “However, a vision of our Father’s incredible promised blessings must be the central focus before our eyes everyday, as well as an awareness of the multitude of His tender mercies that we experience on a daily basis.”
  10. “What will it matter, dear sisters, what we have suffered here, if in the end those trials are the very things which qualify us for eternal life and exaltation in the Kingdom of God with our Father and Savior.”

  11. “We join with faithful sisters of the past, the present, and of the rising generation when we join together in the work of salvation.”
  12. “Righteousness eminates out to the world when we understand what God wants us to do, and then we do it.”
  13. “Family is the very heart of the work of salvation.”
  14. “When we serve in the name of the Lord with purity of heart, we reflect the Savior’s love and give others a glimpse of heaven.”

    Dieter F. Uchtdorf

  15. “Dear child, now is part of eternity. It doesn’t only begin after we die. Faith and hope will open your eyes to the happiness that placed before you now. I know a poem that says, ‘Forever is composed of nows.’ I didn’t want my forever to be composed of dark and fearful nows, and I didn’t want to live in the gloom of a bunker, gritting my teeth, closing my eyes, and resentfully enduring to the bitter end. Faith gave me the hope I needed to live joyfully now.”
  16. “God didn’t design us to be sad. He created us to have joy.”

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will hear from prophets, seers, and revelators during General Conference next Saturday and Sunday.
