The Holy Ghost as our constant companion

posted Mar 11, 2017 05:07:43 by David.Clark
"On a later occasion, when serving as Relief Society general president, Eliza [R.] taught the sisters that the Holy Ghost 'satisfies and fills up every longing of the human heart, and fills up every vacuum. When I am filled with that Spirit,' she continued, 'my soul is satisfied, and I can say in good earnest, that the trifling things of the day do not seem to stand in my way at all. But just let me lose my hold of that spirit and power of the gospel, and partake of the spirit of the world, in the slightest degree, and trouble comes; there is something wrong. I am tried, and what will comfort me? You cannot impart comfort to me that will satisfy the immortal mind, but that which comes from the Fountain above. And is it not our privilege to so live that we can have this constantly flowing into our souls?'" Sheri Dew, "Women and the Priesthood," Deseret Book, Nov. 5, 2013.

Love this book. I also have it on tape. I asked my husband to read it too. He also learned a lot. I highly recommend it.

I agree, Lory! I kinda wish the Lord would call her again as a general officer of the Church so we hear her in general conference more!!
