This last weekend was one of my favorites of the year. We got to spend hours and hours listening to men and women called of God to share His message. And what did they share? Following are my top 10 quotes from October 2013 General Conference.
My dear brothers and sisters, if you ever come across anything that causes you to question your testimony of the gospel, I plead with you to look up. Look to the Source of all wisdom and truth. Nourish your faith and testimony with the word of God. - Elder Adrian Ochoa
If you define hypocrite as someone who fails to live up perfectly to what he or she believes, then we are all hypocrites. None of us is quite as Christlike as we know we should be. But we earnestly desire to overcome our faults and the tendency to sin. With our heart and soul we yearn to become better with the help of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. - President Uchtdorf
A strong human spirit with control over appetites of the flesh is master over emotions and passions and not a slave to them. That kind of freedom is as vital to the spirit as oxygen is to the body! Freedom from self-slavery is true liberation! - Elder Nelson
Remember that Jesus’s power came through His single-minded devotion to the will of the Father. He never varied from that which pleased His Father. Strive to be that kind of disciple of the Father and the Son, and your influence will never fade. And do not be afraid to apply that influence without fear or apology. - Elder Christofferson
A person who has experienced true conversion draws upon the power of the Atonement and receives salvation for his or her own soul, then reaches out to exert a powerful influence upon all those who know him or her. - Sister Bonnie Oscarson
I pray that we will not let the temporary challenges of mortality cause us to forget the great commandments and priorities we have been given by our Creator and our Savior. - Elder Oaks
While God is at work making those repairs, the rest of us can help by being merciful, nonjudgmental, and kind. - Elder Holland
We all need each other. Sons of God need daughters of God, and daughters of God need sons of God. - Sister Carole Stephens
She was the love of my life, my trusted confidant, and my closest friend. To say that I miss her does not begin to convey the depth of my feelings. - President Monson
Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith. - President Uchtdorf
