Messages from the Twelve

188th Annual General Conference:

The members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shared powerful messages. What did you learn? What were you inspired to do?

Ballard, M. Russell

Life can be filled with faith, joy, happiness, hope, and love when we exercise the smallest amount of real faith in Christ.

Holland, Jeffrey R.

Our prayer today is that every man and woman will leave this general conference more deeply committed to heartfelt care for one another.

Uchtdorf, Dieter F.

Those who find a way to truly behold the Man find the doorway to life’s greatest joys and the balm to life’s most demanding despairs.

Bednar, David A.

Meekness is a defining attribute of the Redeemer and is distinguished by righteous responsiveness, willing submissiveness, and strong self-restraint.

Cook, Quentin L.

Pursuing divinely appointed responsibilities in righteousness, unity, and equality will prepare us to meet God.

Christofferson, D. Todd

Having one Melchizedek Priesthood quorum in a ward unifies priesthood holders to accomplish all aspects of the work of salvation.

Andersen, Neil L.

A prophet does not stand between you and the Savior. Rather, he stands beside you and points the way to the Savior.

Rasband, Ronald A.

What a joy it will be for all Melchizedek Priesthood holders to have the blessing of teaching, learning, and serving shoulder to shoulder.

Stevenson, Gary E.

We can rejoice that the Lord’s prophet is in place and that the Lord’s work is being done in the way that He has divinely prescribed.

Renlund, Dale G.

When we gather our family histories and go to the temple on behalf of our ancestors, God fulfills promised blessings simultaneously on both sides of the veil.

Gong, Gerrit W.

This is Easter Sunday. I reverently witness and solemnly testify of the living Christ—He who “died, was buried, and rose again the third day.”

Soares, Ulisses

Having prophets is a sign of God’s love for His children. They make known the promises and the true nature of God and of Jesus Christ.
