Product Description

When the Lord called Enoch to prophesy to his people, the message He instructed Enoch to give was this: “Choose ye this day, to serve the Lord God who made you” (Moses 6:33). As the world was in the days of Enoch, it is now—and the message to our time is the same. This scripture serves as the theme of the 2010 Brigham Young University Women’s Conference, and the twenty addresses in this book speak to that theme. Readers will find messages that will bolster their efforts to fulfill their roles as sisters, mothers, leaders—daughters of a loving God who cares who they are and what they do.

“As daughters of God you are custodians of the powers of life and you are sponsors of the Spirit of the Lord in the homes of Zion. You are the principal nurturers in the family duties placed upon us by a loving Heavenly Father.”—Elder Dallin H. Oaks

“Women are like lionesses at the gate of the home. Whatever happens in a woman’s home and family happens because she cares about it and it matters to her. She guards that gate, and if something matters to her, it matters to her family.”—Julie B. Beck

“We must be aware of our children’s many situations and moods. As mothers, we are healers in our homes and one of the greatest healing powers we have at our disposal is the power of love. Do our children feel of our love?”—Ann M. Dibb

“Your Heavenly Father knows your name. He knows who you really are. He knows what you’re feeling and thinking about right now. He knows your worries, your concerns—and your joys, your hopes, your dreams, and what you’re looking forward to.”—Mary Ellen Edmunds

“The call for a return to virtue is a call for all of us. It is a call for the world now. It is for you and for me and for our daughters and granddaughters. It is for our families. Now is the time for a return to virtue. Now is the time for women everywhere to ‘arise and shine forth that thy light may be a standard for the nations’ (D&C 115:5).”—Elaine S. Dalton

This collection of addresses gives us both the strength to choose whom we will follow, and encouragement to continue on the path the Lord has shown us. By heeding the Lord’s message, we can, as Enoch, help to build Zion in our lives and the lives of our families.
