The 18th Relief Society General President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened the 2023 BYU Women’s Conference saying that Latter-day Saint women “stand ready to provide relief.”

President Camille N. Johnson and her counselors, Sister J. Anette Dennis and Sister Kristin M. Yee, kicked off the conference Wednesday evening, May 3, 2023, by welcoming the audience back to one of the largest gatherings of women in the world after a year’s pause and two years of online presentations.

The leaders spoke of temporal relief, the relief that comes through the Master healer, and relief through sacred covenants made with God.

“As members of the Relief Society, we point one another to the Savior for relief and follow the Savior’s example in giving Christlike love,” President Johnson told a crowd of thousands of women gathered in the Marriott Center on the campus of Brigham Young University.

“We provide relief — temporal and spiritual — through the power of the Savior, and in the process find our own relief. We find Jesus Christ,” she said.
