Speaking at the General Relief Society Meeting on Sept. 25, Sister Beck said righteous women today “seek an outpouring of revelation to resist distractions, fight evil and spiritual destruction, and rise above personal disasters by increasing their faith, strengthening their families and homes and providing relief to others.”
Sister Beck called the general meeting, which was translated and broadcast across the globe, a gift to all women who desire to learn the will of their Heavenly Father and understand their “responsibilities in His plan.”
“Each of you is precious beyond description and known by our Heavenly Father,” she told the worldwide congregation.
She said Church leaders know that many women live in oppressive or dangers circumstances. “Some are constantly hungry, and some must summon daily courage to continue in faith despite disappointments and being betrayed by others.”
Because Church members are living in the last days of this earth, there are signs of a great struggle everywhere, she added.
