Has your life been blessed by certain women who were confident, dependable, and assuring during difficult times? Do you hope to be that kind of certain woman for someone else? Sister Linda K. Burton, recent Relief Society General President, shares stories from the New Testament, church history, and women of today who have stood firm as disciples of Christ and shared their certain witness both in word and action. These women inspire each of us in any role or circumstance—even when we feel distracted, discouraged, or soul-stretched—to be confident, positive women, who, like Martha, can declare our certain witness, "I believe that thou are the Christ, the Son of God" (John 11:27).
