conference quotes

Conference today was yet another confirmation to me that my Heavenly Father knows each of us very personally and that he knows our needs.  We had a family home evening (yes, every now and again we have family home evening) about preparing for conference but writing down questions or problems that we needed help with.  My heart was very full as I saw our divinely inspired leaders working through the spirit to help us each so individually.  I am so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who wants us to be happy and tries in so many ways to guide us through this life.  

Here are a few of the quotes that I especially loved from conference:

"Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith"   -Dieter F. Uchdorf

“The Church is designed to nourish the imperfect, the struggling, and the exhausted.” 
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time.” Neal A. Maxwell

“Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.”
