Brother Callister: "Satan Wants Women to Focus on Their Weaknesses, Both Real and Imagined"

“Satan wants women to focus on their weaknesses and shortcomings, both real and imagined; the Lord wants them to focus on their divine identity and destiny,” Brother Tad R. Callister said.

Without Christ, there is no permanent healing, but with Him, there is no affliction that cannot be healed, Brother Tad R. Callister declared at the annual Women’s Conference at Brigham Young University.

“Of course, there are other resources that may exist, but for the healing process to be complete it must be centered in Jesus Christ,” said Brother Callister, Sunday School General President and an emeritus General Authority.

After speaking with a number of women, Elder Callister listed some of the more common issues women face:

  • A husband addicted to pornography or unfaithful in other ways
  • A child who has gone astray spiritually
  • The trials of a divorce
  • The loneliness of singlehood
  • The challenges of motherhood
  • Thoughts that others seem more beautiful, competent, intelligent, or spiritual
  • Feelings of worthlessness or, perhaps, thoughts of suicide

“I speak today in hopes that you will draw upon the healing powers of the Savior and that you will recognize your inestimable worth and your unlimited possibilities as a daughter of God,” Brother Callister said.
