it's for YOU.

Hearing these words from a holy man one week ago was undeniably an experience for me personally. But not for me only.

She had an urgent need to feel that she wasn’t alone—that God was aware of her and had not abandoned her. That bread—the very thing she wanted—was delivered to her by someone she barely knew, someone who had no knowledge of her need but who listened to the prompting of the Spirit and followed that prompting. It became an obvious sign to Tiffany that her Heavenly Father was aware of her needs and loved her enough to send help. He had responded to her cries for relief.
My dear sisters, your Heavenly Father loves you—each of you. That love never changes. It is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank account. It is not changed by your talents and abilities. It is simply there. It is there for you when you are sad or happy, discouraged or hopeful. God’s love is there for you whether or not you feel you deserve love. It is simply always there.
As we seek our Heavenly Father through fervent, sincere prayer and earnest, dedicated scripture study, our testimonies will become strong and deeply rooted. We will know of God’s love for us. We will understand that we do not ever walk alone. I promise you that you will one day stand aside and look at your difficult times, and you will realize that He was always there beside you. I know this to be true in the passing of my eternal companion . . .

I am incredibly grateful to know that Heavenly Father understands and loves me. He loves you, His child! I am very grateful for the influence and gift of the Holy Ghost. I invite you to watch and listen to prophets speak during General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints online, by clicking on this photo. I think you'll be inspired, no matter what religion you belong to.

P.S. You can read all of that talk from the annual women's meeting here.
