Thoughts on the General Women's meeting

29 March 2014

Wow. The General Women's Meeting tonight was so powerful and inspiring! It brought tears of joy to my eyes several times. I can't help but be so grateful for having the knowledge of the gospel in my life. I wrote down some notes while I was watching, and thought that I would share a few of them with you. Some of these bullet points are quotes, and others are just what was on my mind while I was listening:

  • Let’s look beyond our differences and learn what we have in common. Lay aside the things of the world, and come unto Christ. Nurture others for Him through service. We can do this by bearing each other’s burdens, and comforting those that stand in need of comfort.

  • We need to relax and enjoy our divine differences as women. We need support and companionship as sisters. Mary shared her feelings (responsibility of being the mother of Christ) with her cousin Elizabeth. They were able to talk and support each other -great examples of feminine nurturing. 

  • Before we came into this life, we were tutored by Him. He helped us understand that we would have trials and tests and opportunities that were perfectly chosen just for us. We also learned about our Father’s plan of happiness to get us through those trials, and that we would need to help others get through theirs. The way back home isn’t easy. He knew it would be too hard for us without help, so he provided us with a Savior, the gospel, families, and friends, to help uplift and support each other. -President Eyring

  • Heavenly Father smiles when He sees us help one of His children move closer towards eternal life. He smiles when we make a good choice. He sees us not only as we are, but as we can become. Our Heavenly Father sees our great potential, and whenever we move upward on that path to our potential, we can feel his approval through the spirit. 

  • Let's treat every person we meet, as a child of God. We are commanded to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to forgive. Let’s try to understand and accept everyone. We are more alike as daughters of God, than we are different. Let’s get to know, admire, and love each other, as sisters.

  • "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart…and he shall direct thy paths.” We can find joy through our trials, sorrows and disappointments with the knowledge we have of the gospel. He will provide us with the help that we need to return back to Him. 

I apologize for not keeping track of who said what...If you haven't already watched the General Women's meeting, you can do so HERE. It's so good- see for yourself!
