James B. Martino

Second Quorum of the Seventy (April 4, 2009 – Present)

General Conference Addresses

  • October 2015 General Conference
    • Turn to Him and Answers Will Come
      • “I have learned since that the promise made by Moroni is accurate. God does answer our prayers about the truthfulness of the gospel, but He answers them when we have “a sincere heart” and “real intent.” He does not answer just to respond to our curiosity.”
      • “If you do not feel it now, you can feel it again, but consider Nephi’s counsel. Be obedient, remember the times when you have felt the Spirit in the past, and ask in faith. Your answer will come, and you will feel the love and peace of the Savior. It may not come as quickly or in the format you desire, but the answer will come. Do not give up! Never give up!”
      • “These personal religious habits—obedience, scripture study, prayer, and fasting—strengthened the sons of Mosiah. The lack of these same personal religious habits was a major reason that Laman and Lemuel were left vulnerable to the temptation to murmur and doubt.”
  • April 2010 General Conference
    • All Things Work Together for Good
      • “First, He sought not to do His will but only the will of His Father. He remained committed to His sacred mission even through the trial.”
      • “Second, when we are faced with trials, we must learn to not complain or murmur.”
      • “Third, when we face our challenges, we must seek greater help from God.”
      • “We must remember that often the answers from our Heavenly Father do not remove the trial from us, but instead He helps strengthen us as we pass through the experience.”
      • “Fourth, learn to serve and think of others even in our times of trial.”
      • “Fifth, forgive others and do not seek to pass the blame of our situation to them.”
