General Conference Recap: Our Favorite Quotes

By Becky Squire

Another weekend of General Conference has come and gone and I’m already missing the “high” I always get listening to 10 hours of prophetic and inspiring words from the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

If you’re like me and need another little boost of comfort and encouragement, enjoy a few of my favorite quotes from the October 2020 General Conference.

“Christianity is comforting, but it is often not comfortable. The path to holiness and happiness here and hereafter is a long and sometimes rocky one. It takes time and tenacity to walk it. But, of course, the reward for doing so is monumental.” Elder Jeffrey R. Holland 

“I believe the change we seek in ourselves and in the groups we belong to will come less by activism and more by actively trying every day to understand one another.” Sharon L. Eubank

“Our youth can’t wait for the world to right itself before they come to know the Savior.” Steven J. Lund

“The Lord does not expect us to do more than we can do, but He does expect us to do what we can do… when we can do it.” W. Christopher Waddell

“In the culture of Christ, women are elevated to their proper and eternal status. They are not subservient to men, as in many cultures in today’s world, but full and equal partners here and in the world to come.” William K. Jackson

“God does not love one race more than another. The doctrine on this matter is clear. He invites all to come and to him, black and white, bond and free, male and female.” Russell M. Nelson
