Heavenly Father knows our names

Anyone remember which apostle at this last conference quoted something very powerful about Heavenly Father knowing our name?
I can remember it but can’t put a name to it!

Pres. Uchtdorf spoke at the women’s meeting along that vein: www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/10/living-the-gospel-joyful?lang=eng

I don’t if that’s what you are looking for or not but this is toward the bottom of his talk:

“My dear sisters in the gospel, whether you are 8 or 108, there is one thing that I hope you truly understand and know:

“You are loved.

“You are dear to your heavenly parents.

“The infinite and eternal Creator of light and life knows you! He is mindful of you.

“Yes, God loves you this very day and always.

“He is not waiting to love you until you have overcome your weaknesses and bad habits. He loves you today with a full understanding of your struggles. He is aware that you reach up to Him in heartfelt and hopeful prayer. He knows of the times you have held onto the fading light and believed—even in the midst of growing darkness. He knows of your sufferings. He knows of your remorse for the times you have fallen short or failed. And still He loves you.

“And God knows of your successes; though they may seem small to you, He acknowledges and cherishes each one of them. He loves you for extending yourself to others. He loves you for reaching out and helping others bear their heavy burdens—even when you are struggling with your own.

“He knows everything about you. He sees you clearly—He knows you as you really are. And He loves you—today and always!

“Do you suppose it matters to our Heavenly Father whether your makeup, clothes, hair, and nails are perfect? Do you think your value to Him changes based on how many followers you have on Instagram or Pinterest? Do you think He wants you to worry or get depressed if some un-friend or un-follow you on Facebook or Twitter? Do you think outward attractiveness, your dress size, or popularity make the slightest difference in your worth to the One who created the universe?

“He loves you not only for who you are this very day but also for the person of glory and light you have the potential and the desire to become.

“More than you could ever imagine, He wants you to achieve your destiny—to return to your heavenly home in honor.

“I testify that the way to accomplish this is to place selfish desires and unworthy ambitions on the altar of sacrifice and service. Sisters, trust in the saving power of Jesus Christ; keep His laws and commandments. In other words—live the gospel joyful.”
