President Henry B. Eyring:

“The promise that the Lord will give us words in the very moment applies especially to testimony. Listen carefully to testimonies borne in this conference-you will feel closer to the Lord.

You can sense that I am coming to the moment when I will cap the message I have tried to convey with a testimony of truth. Your prayers will help me to be given words of testimony that may help someone longing for an answer to is or her questions.”

Elder Donald L. Hallstrom:

“When difficult things occur in our lives, what is our immediate response? Is it confusion or doubt or spiritual withdrawal? Is it a blow to our faith? Do we blame God or others for our circumstances? Or is our first response to remember who we are – that we are children of a loving God? Is that coupled with an absolute trust that He allows some earthly suffering because He knows it will bless us, like a refiner’s fire, to become like Him and to gain our eternal inheritance?”

Elder Kevin R. Duncan:

“In a similar way, an unforgiving heart harbors so much needless pain. When we apply the healing ointment or the Savior’s Atonement, He will soften our heart and help us to change. He can heal the wounded soul.”

Elder Steven E. Snow:

“But humility is not something reserved to be taught only to children. We must all strive to become more humble. Humility is essential to gain the blessings of the gospel. Humility enables us to have broken hearts when we sin or make mistakes, and makes it possible for us to repent. Humility enables us to be better parents, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, neighbors and friends.”

Elder Dale G. Renlund:

“Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, ultimately, in the eternal scheme of things, there will be no unfairness. “All that is unfair about life can be made right.” Our present circumstances may not change, but through God’s compassion, kindness, and love, we will all receive more than we deserve, more than we could ever earn, and more than we could ever hope for. We are promised that, “God shall wipe away all tears from [our] eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
