What We Believe

Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught women in the Church an important spiritual pattern: “By small and simple things are great things brought to pass” (Alma 37:6), during the Brigham Young University Women’s Conference on April 29, 2011. The scripture was also the theme for Women’s Conference.

Elder Bednar began by reading Doctrine and Covenants 52:14 and then inviting the congregation to consider a specific phrase from that verse: “a pattern in all things.”

“A pattern is a guide or a model,” he said. “Patterns are used in sewing and knitting, in wood- and metalworking, and in a wide variety of other productive pursuits, activities, and jobs. Patterns help to avoid waste and unwanted deviations and facilitate uniformity that is appropriate and beneficial.”
