Drawing Parallels: Repentance

Speakers in conference often teach some of the same principles. Here is what four speakers said about repentance. Try looking for other parallels as you study conference talks.

  • “If any of you has stumbled in your journey, I want you to understand without any question whatsoever that there is a way back. The process is called repentance.”1—President Thomas S. Monson

  • “You may in time of trouble think that you are not worth saving because you have made mistakes, big or little, and you think you are now lost. That is never true! Only repentance can heal what hurts.”2—President Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

  • “Whoever you are and whatever you have done, you can be forgiven. … It is the miracle of forgiveness; it is the miracle of the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.”3—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

  • “Only through repentance do we gain access to the atoning grace of Jesus Christ and salvation. Repentance is a divine gift, and there should be a smile on our faces when we speak of it.”4—Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
