Inspiring Quotes from General Conference April 2012

It's been a spiritually uplifting weekend. I always enjoy General Conference! I thought I would share a few quotes and thoughts I had this weekend. These are only a few - there were many talks that uplifted me and encouraged me to do better.

No new temples were announced.
A new Relief Society general presidency was also announced. Sister Linda K. Burton was called as the general president of the Relief Society, the Church’s organization for women. Sister Carole M. Stephens and Sister Linda S. Reeves will serve as first and second counselors. Sister Julie B. Beck, Sister Silvia H. Allred and Sister Barbara Thompson were released and received an expression of gratitude for their five years of leadership.

Also a new Presiding Bishopric was announced.

"We come together as one, speaking many languages, living in many lands, but all of one faith, and one doctrine, and one purpose." -President Thomas S. Monson

I ask the Lord’s blessing to be upon each of you... Thomas S. Monsen (random finger circle - I loved)

“Don’t judge me because I sin differently than you” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
"Stop It" (Judging and contention)

Elder Jeffery R. Holland said:
"There are going to be times in our lives when someone else gets the unexpected blessing or receives some special recognition."
"We are not diminished when someone else is added upon."
"The race we are really in is the race against sin, and surely envy is one of the most universal of those."
"Envy is a mistake that just keeps on giving."
"Coveting, pouting, or tearing others down does not elevate your standing, nor does demeaning someone else improve your self-image."
"Be kind and be grateful that God is kind."
  "Don't delay, it's getting late."

Elder Richard G. Scott's talk--"You were not put on this earth to fail, but to succeed gloriously."

"We become converted and spiritually self-reliant as we prayerfully live our covenants…" Robert D Hales

“Elder” DAVID ARCHULETA sang with other missionaries in the LDS General Conference Saturday afternoon session in a choir. I love that he is dedicating 2 years of his life to serve the Lord and share His gospel.
