My Notes from the General Relief Society Meeting

These are my Notes that I took at the meeting tonight
General  Relief Society meeting.

Linda K. Burton, Relief Society general president

 *We we will go through many challenges, suffering and adversity.

All things are possible through the atonement of Jesus Christ.

We can learn to teach about the atonement as to child so others may understand.
We all learn in simple ways.
The Savior will come to the bottom of the pit and provide that ladder for us to climb out. He will give us a hand but we need to want that help.   We can continue one the path to our Heavenly Father.

Heavenly Father loved is enough to send the Savior to suffer for us. 
I may not be the prettiest woman on the planet. But my Heavenly Father loves me as I am  daughter of God. I may be a crumpled up dollar bill but that dollar still has worth.*

Carole M. Stephens, first counselor
*Put on the armor of light. Bear one another's burdens that they may light.  
Do not let our sisters down spiritually. We can help each other.
See a need and act.  
Let us begin where we are to be covenant people.
We daughters of our a Heavenly Father who loves us*. 

Linda S. Reeves, second counselor

*She shared the story of  Lazarus.  Christ wept when he found out he had died. This shows  the compassion he has.
He suffered for all of us. He took upon him all our afflictions. He died and he lives for us. That is unconditional love.

When we have struggles but do not turn away from the Savior. Let him in so he can help us.  Things will be alright no matter what the circumstances are.  
Whatever we are going through, he loves you. Cast your burdens to him. Tell him what your going through.  Study the scriptures daily.
Let him in. He will comfort you.*

President Henry B Eyring   First Counselor in the First Presidency

*We must cherish one another.
Care for each other,teach each other, sit down with God. We are responding to the relief of others.  Attend to the temporal needs as well as spiritual.  Our Heavenly Father watches over us as he loves us.        
As we keep the faith, we will be called to do things that may not be easy or pleasant, but we will be blessed as we serve.
Serving others brings together a team of people to help care. He loves us for whatever part we play.*
