Charity, pure love of God

As daughters of God we have an innate ability to feel, to understand and to love. We need these abilities in order to love and assist those in need, whatever their circumstance. In our homes, with our neighbors, work place, and in all or our sacred stewardships.

As we "Pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ. (Moroni 7:48)" we will be filled with His Love

“When filled with God’s love, we can do and see and understand things that we could not otherwise do or see or understand. Filled with His love, we can endure pain, quell fear, forgive freely, avoid contention, renew strength, and bless and help others in ways surprising even to us.”
(Elder John H. Groberg)

“The overwhelming message of the Atonement is the perfect love the Savior has for each and all of us. It is a love which is full of mercy, patience, grace, equity, long-suffering, and above all, forgiving.”
(President James E. Faust)

Be not faithless, but believing.” Believe in yourselves. Believe in your capacity to do some good in this world. God sent us here for a purpose, and that was to improve the world in which we live. The wonderful thing is that we can do it.” (President Gordon B Hinckley)
