For Single Adult Members

Here is what three speakers said about being single:

  • “Now is part of eternity. It doesn’t only begin after we die! Faith and hope will open your eyes to the happiness that is placed before you.” —President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “A Summer with Great-Aunt Rose,” 19.

  • “Another painful affliction is the circumstance of singleness. Those who suffer this circumstance should remember that our Savior experienced this kind of pain also and that, through His Atonement, He offers the strength to bear it.” —Elder Dallin H. Oaks, “Strengthened by the Atonement of Jesus Christ,” 63.

  • “Be patient. Wait upon the Lord. I testify that the Lord knows your desires and loves you for your faithful devotion to Him. He has a plan for you, whether it be in this life or the next. Listen to His Spirit. … In this life or the next, His promises will be fulfilled.” —Elder Robert D. Hales, “Meeting the Challenges of Today’s World,” 46.
