April 2017 LDS General Conference Notes
(My notes and impressions -- not direct quotes.)

General Women’s Session March 25, 2017

Bonnie H. Cordon, Second Counselor, Primary General Presidency

Lean not unto thine own understanding. When we lean, we are off center and off balance. When we lean spiritually, we lean away from Christ. We must each ask, “How do I lean not?” Come to know the Lord and trust Him as we feast upon the words of Christ. Searching and pondering on the scriptures brings us closer to Christ. Come to know the Lord and trust Him through prayer. As we pray, our desires will become more like Christ’s desires. Come to know the Lord and trust Him as we serve others. When we think of our own suffering, life becomes very dark, but when we think of others and serve them, life brings light and joy. Each of us can trust in the Lord and lean not. We can trust in the Lord, and He will direct our path. If we trust our Father in Heaven and our Savior, they will direct our path.

Carol F. McConkie, First Counselor, Young Women General Presidency

Holiness is honoring our covenants, setting aside our natural tendencies, and following Christ. Heavenly Father knows us, loves us, and has provided all that is required for us to become holy. Our hope for holiness is centered in Christ, in His mercy, and in His grace. Our souls are sanctified when we receive the Holy Ghost in our lives. As we strive to become like Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, we become partakers in their character traits. We keep ourselves unspotted, when we keep the Sabbath day holy. Come to the temple. We must arise and put on our beautiful garments and be clothed with purity, even with the robe of righteousness. Holiness is a gift of the Spirit. If we are to be holy, we must sit at the feet of the Holy One. Take time to be holy that we may be filled with the sanctifying feeling of the Spirit. Jesus Christ is the beauty of holiness. Heavenly Father has given each of us the capacity to become holy. May our lives ever be a sacred offering.

Linda K. Burton, Relief Society General President

The phrase “certain women” in the scriptures is connected to positive, confident, definite, assured women. They had strong testimonies and declared them. We learn from the scriptures that “certain women” are women whose lives are centered in Jesus Christ. Covenant keeping discipleship requires our willingness to sacrifice. When we have become distracted or discouraged, may we accept the Lord’s invitation to accept the living water? When we are down and troubled, may we declare our certain witness that we know that Jesus is the Christ. As we keep covenants by serving others in their times of need, maybe we will become part of the “certain women” when Christ comes again.

President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor, First Presidency

We all want to feel peace often in our families and in our world around us. Christ said He would give peace in His way, by sending the Comforter. Faith will be challenged by Satan. Your defense is to keep the Holy Ghost as your companion. He will bring back to remembrance those times when you felt the light of Christ. Our Father in Heaven is not just concerned about our comfort, but in our upward progress. As we serve others and do good in the world, we will find peace and comfort. Our ability to do good depends our ability to be unified one with another. Unity is necessary for the Spirit to abide. The unity we seek will come as we seek the Holy Ghost. The Spirit sees with the pure love of Christ. The Father knows you, knows your name, and your needs. The Holy Ghost will help you serve others. The Holy Ghost will have a purifying and sanctifying peace on your life.

Do not buy/lease solar panels from #SunRun. My daughter is having a terrible time with customer service. Installation of solar panels caused leaky roof, and #SunRun refuses responsibility.
