One of my favorite talks from this General Conference was by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, whose tribute to mothers moved me to tears. He also said, “To all mothers in every circumstance, including those who struggle—and all will—I say, ‘Be peaceful. Believe in God and yourself. You are doing better than you think you are.'”
I loved how Elder M. Russell Ballard used the imagery of a ship, with our Heavenly Father at the helm, steering us in the direction of our eternal home.
It was a joy to hear from our prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, who spoke of ways we can be the light of Christ. He also said: “The words we use can lift and inspire, or they can harm and demean. … May we follow the example of the Savior, who spoke with tolerance and kindness throughout His ministry.”
