“Every daughter of God listening to my voice has received a call from the Lord,” said President Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, at the start of his remarks.
“For each one who makes [baptismal] covenants, the service that the Lord calls him or her to do will be suited perfectly to that person,” he said. “The covenant daughters and sons of God, however, all share one important and joyful call. It is to serve others for Him.”
President Eyring spoke of how we grow into this call through unique life experiences that help us to prepare to live with God. He shared President Nelson’s description of a woman’s divine mission and its connection to covenants with God:
“As mother, teacher, or nurturing Saint, she molds living clay to the shape of her hopes. In partnership with God, her divine mission is to help spirits live and souls be lifted. This is the measure of her creation. It is ennobling, edifying, and exalting” (“Woman—Of Infinite Worth,” Ensign, Nov. 1989, 22).
In closing, President Eyring called on covenant women to mother, lead, minister, and serve in whatever place God has prepared for them.
“I promise that you will find joy in your journey to your heavenly home as you return to Him as a covenant-keeping daughter of God.”
